ORI is an independent, non-profit human rights organization for orphaned and abandoned children worldwide. Children who are deprived of the guidance and protection of their primary caregivers are more vulnerable to health risks, violence, exploitation and discrimination and they are often deprived of education. We strive to guard the fundamental needs of this disadvantaged population by engaging in advocacy, education, problem analysis, and the development of solutions based on sound research that can be applied by countries and NGO’s worldwide.
It is our mission to serve the best interest of children without parental care worldwide, by reducing the number of children without parental care. ORI will do this by using the best possible research on “best interest of the child” to assist governments and NGO’s worldwide to unite children as early as possible with permanent and loving care. Special attention will be given to find structural positive solutions for older children, less easy to place in family or family-type environments.
To offer a temporary place of safety for children without parental care and to promote the holistic growth of the child: emotional, cognitive, social, moral and physical. Restructure and build family units and reorganize homes into family models including a special needs section and a medical facility. Step up reintegration activities of children back to the community.
