COCO was founded by Steve Cram CBE and British Army Major Jim Panton in 2000. Since then, the charity has raised over £4 million to fund small, sustainable, community led initiatives. COCO and its partners have now undertaken 60 transformational projects in 16 countries, positively impacting the lives of over 200,000 people.
COCO is currently operating in Tanzania, Kenya and Uganda, in East Africa. Despite having just three full-time members of staff, the charity has enjoyed considerable success. Graduates from partner school, Hoja Secondary in Tanzania, have achieved the best results in their region for four consecutive years and the school is now able to cover its own running costs.
COCO is currently working with 10 other communities to replicate the success of Hoja Secondary School. In addition, to enable parents to cover the cost of their children’s education, COCO has distributed 4,500 small loans and reached 13 communities with sustainable agriculture training, helping farmers to increase their annual income by up to 283%.
Charity No: SC030428
