We are an international charity striving for a future where every child is raised in a safe, loving, family home.

Today, there are an estimated 5.4 million children in institutions around the world. Research proves these institutions can harm their growth and development.

And more than 80% of children in orphanages have a living parent.

We shed light on the root causes of family separation – poverty, conflict and discrimination.

We press and support governments to reform care systems and, by building global expertise and skill with our partners, we show how children can be safely united with families.
