Ricardo Toyditz Cosico, Jr., is Regional Program Support Manager for Asia for One Child, a global community of Child Champions that advocates for and provides holistic care to more than 40,000 children in 16 of the world’s poorest countries. Toyditz began his journey with One Child in March 2019. Toyditz grew up in an impoverished community in the Philippines and was only able to complete his education because his mother did domestic work abroad, away from her family. A schoolteacher by profession, Toyditz earned a Bachelor of Science degree in education before being called to work in Community Development for the next 20 years. He then served for three years as a consultant for Tear Fund and was with Compassion International for nine years. Through his service in the Philippines, he has been able to fulfill his passion for outreach, as well as an interest in training and mentoring future leaders. Toyditz is a skilled relationship builder who works hard to connect with potential ministry partners and equip local churches, Hope Center staff, and colleagues all over the world with the tools they need to succeed. Alongside his wife, Manette (a fellow OneChild leader), and two grown sons, he is motivated to bring hope to children in hard places and to serve as an example that by the grace of God, they too can reach their full potential.
