By 2050 all children will grow up in loving, nurturing, protective families.

Because children belong in families, not orphanages

Eight million children live in orphanages and other institutions globally. More than 80% are not orphans but have been separated from their families because of poverty and discrimination. Orphanages harm children, exposing them to all forms of abuse and trafficking.

We rescue children from orphanages and reunite them with families. We change education, health and social care systems so all children and families can access the care and protection they deserve.

Because only families provide the building blocks children need to thrive and reach their full potential.
