Across the world eight million children are living in orphanages and institutions and, as a result, they are outside the care of a loving family. Indeed, most of these children have families that could look after them with the right support. Help us bring them home.

All children count, but not all are counted #leavenoonebehind

Lumos has helped to bring together over 175 organisations from around the world who are calling on the UN to ensure that the SDGs will reach ALL children, especially the ones most vulnerable, living in orphanages or institutions. Read more about our campaign and see our joint open letter here

We believe that governments should help vulnerable children access health education and other services whilst remaining in their own families and communities. We want to strengthen the ability of families to care for their own children, and build fostering, adoption and other family-based services. Help us by writing to your Government.
