The World Orphanage Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization, which builds public awareness and raises funds for select orphanages and other institutions that are devoted to child welfare and the plight of children worldwide; from orphans to child soldiers. Working with vetted global partners, we assist with fundraising, media attention, organizing volunteer activities, and providing many other forms of much needed support. UNICEF reports that there are an estimated 200 million orphans worldwide and we are driven to bring change where the need is crucial. Contributions made through World Orphanage Foundation are to be used to further this compassionate cause, and to directly provide funds to those orphanages.
