Our mission is to transform the lives of at-risk, vulnerable, and orphaned children through access to medical care, education, and psycho-social support so they can be independent members of their communities and the world.
Worldwide Orphans (WWO) is an international non-profit organization that aims to transform the lives of children and communities in need. We provide education, health, and psycho-social support in their local communities so they can become confident, competent, thriving adults who will change the world around them. Established in 1997, WWO currently works in Bulgaria, Ethiopia, Haiti, Serbia, the U.S. and Vietnam. By allowing culture, context and the need of each country to guide our programs, WWO maintains the flexibility needed to reach those most vulnerable. In 2016, we supported more than 10,000 children and families, including through our 40 toy libraries located across our countries as part of our Element of Play program.
