KO Charitable Initiatives




Keewaytinook Okimakanak Community Initiatives (KOCI) is a registered charity that creates opportunities for the health and education of youth in the six partner KO communities. Since 2009, KOCI has supported the priorities of First Nation leadership to provide youth with opportunities for recreation, healthy living, accessible education and reuniting youth with their culture and language on the land. 


KOCI invites you to partner with us in making applications to foundations for projects that fit well with your department and the network of dedicated community members that you work with.  Support community volunteers with projects that enhanced the quality of life for the youth.
