Across the world eight million children are living in orphanages and institutions and, as a result, they are outside the care of a loving family. Indeed, most of these children have families that could look after them with the right support. Help us bring them home.

Learn about the SDGs and what they mean for children

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) provide an unprecedented UN plan of action, which will set priorities for all countries and directly influence the global development agenda from 2016 for the next 15 years. This is why they must include a reference to vulnerable children and youth around the world. Learn more about the latest developments on the SDGs here, and see how they could influence the future of millions of children and families. 


Write for Lumos - make your voice heard, please take action

We believe that governments should help vulnerable children access health education and other services whilst remaining in their own families and communities. We want to strengthen the ability of families to care for their own children, and help build community-based services that support families stay together. Please take action today and help us by writing to your Government.
