About GLOBAL ORPHAN PREVENTION

Location:

17th Street, Denver, CO 80204, US

Mission Statement

We keep mothers and children together through economic opportunity and education. We work to stop the orphan trade and child sex trafficking.

Description

Founded in 2011, we wanted to find a more permanent solution to dismantling for-profit orphan homes in Nepal. During that summer, the founder of Global Orphan Prevention discovered that 85% of children in orphan homes had living parents (UNICEF). Mothers that had been widowed or abandoned were often left with little opportunity for employment and often had to relinquish their children in hopes of providing them a better life in the orphan home. That first summer was spent buying cows and goats to stimulate income generation for such families.

Nowadays, the breath of the organization has extended to working with the Midwifery Society of Nepal providing clean birthing kits and programs in rural villages; thus saving the life of mother or child
