Together, we’re
improving children’s lives
around the world

We believe all children should grow up in a safe and loving home, not an institution.

Find out how you can help.

Today there are over 150 million orphaned children around the world.

8 million of them are living in orphanages,
despite 80% of them having a living parent.

Children belong in families, not institutions.
Research shows that orphanages and institutions do not work. But they are still used to meet the needs of vulnerable children.

That is why we help provide alternatives to institutions.
