Operation International Children (OIC) was established to bring desperately needed school supplies to the children of war-torn regions served by American troops. Founded by actor Gary Sinise and author Laura Hillenbrand and working in partnership with People to People International and its President and CEO, Mary Eisenhower, OIC promotes the collection and contribution of both supply and monetary donations. All contributions to OIC are used solely for the project. With the help of the United States Armed Forces, OIC’s contributions are distributed to children throughout Iraq, Afghanistan, and other nations. The goal of Operation International Children is to improve the quality of education for children by ensuring their access to the basic tools of learning and to foster goodwill between American troops and local citizens while promoting the peace process.
Help us to build peace in the world by making a difference in the life of a child! After all, it is the children of the universe that are the real hope for peace in the future. We hope we have your support in being part of the solution.
