“Our goal: zero children living without a safe, permanent and nurturing family.” Why “There are millions of children living outside of permanent family care. We work to end their suffering.”
“The most vulnerable…and ignored…children in the world are the ones living outside of permanent, safe, nurturing family care. They are trafficked for sex and labor. They commit suicide at a high rate. They too often end up in jail or on the street. Children with disabilities are too often relinquished to an institution and anguish there for a lifetime… or die an early death…alone. It is these children whom we serve.”
“Children living on the streets, in orphanages or on their own just are not the priority we need them to be. Of the top 25 international NGOs, only one has “family” in their mission. Of the 8 United Nations Millennial Goals none are focused on strengthening and protecting families. That needs to change. We believe a permanent, safe and nurturing family is as critical to children… and society… as food, shelter, education and medicine."
“Billions are spent on keeping children alive. That’s a good start, but it’s not good enough. They need food, medicine and an education, but if we don’t protect them, love them and nurture them, what hope do they or society really have?”
“We lead a growing army of passionate, informed and engaged Partners and supporters to help us to achieve our goal.”
“Strong families, strong children are the cornerstone of society. We educate governments, charities, medical professionals and all those who serve, on how best to strengthen families, prevent abandonment, care for our children and build productive, peaceful societies.”
“We work with non-profits around the world to ensure their services and programs include forgotten, underserved and suffering children who live without a safe, permanent and nurturing family.”
“We create and lead coalitions of the like-minded. We identify and foster new ideas, new approaches and new leadership. We marshal existing and new resources. All in the service of strengthening families, preventing abandonment of children and giving hope to children in need.”
