We donate 1% of every payment to Hope and Homes for Children.

Our Purpose

Orphanages do not protect children. They harm them. Hope and Homes for Children are working towards a day where every child can grow up in a loving family. We want to help eliminate the institutional care of children on a global scale, and we want you to do it with us.

5.4m+ estimated children living in orphanages globally
80% mortality rates in some institutions
80% have a parent but have been abandoned due to poverty, disability or discrimination
100 years of research shows orphanages damage children

The Problem

There are an estimated 5.4 million children in orphanages worldwide, but many of these children aren’t orphans at all; it is estimated that 8 out of every 10 of these children have at least one living parent. The reasons why children may be confined to orphanages are often due to poverty, disability, or discrimination.

The Solution

With the right support, it is possible to keep these families together and give children what they want and need most – a stable and loving family. Hope and Homes for Children works with local communities to build alternative models of childcare and tackle the root causes of family breakdown, as well as working with policy makers across the political spectrum.

£301 is all it takes to trace the birth family of 7 children currently confined to an orphanage.
