Kocihita (https://aboriginalhr.ca/en/our-charity) is a national charity dedicated to helping Indigenous people gain an education. As one of only six national indigenous charities, Kocihta (“Koh-chee-tah”) focuses on providing indigenous youths, and youths with disabilities, an education that can lead to a career and self-sufficiency.
With an unemployment rate of over 15% for indigenous peoples, compared to 7% for non-indigenous Canadians, it’s obvious there’s an education gap that can help teach and qualify indigenous youth for careers in many labour markets. Kocihta works with over 1,400 trained practitioners who provide an indigenous-based career development program. The basis of a successful career is a solid education, Helping Indigenous youths reach their potential. There are over 400,000 indigenous youth across Canada ready to enter the job market, and Kocihta will work to give them true options.
Founded by the Aboriginal Human Rights Council, Kocihta is asking for support in its mandate of providing an foundation education for indigenous Canadians, and help them improve their lives dramatically.
