About Us

What We Believe


We believe the world looks different once you’ve looked into the eyes of a child in crisis. You see their innocence and possibilities. In an instant, your priorities change. You deepen your resolve to help.

We believe in committing to a singular cause. For more than 40 years, Wide Horizons For Children has been driven to help the most vulnerable children in the world: those living in poverty, at risk of abandonment, and orphaned children living in institutions.

We believe transforming lives takes decades of experience and dedication, because children deserve nothing less than their best chance to have better lives.

We believe in research and our own experience that tells us a child’s ability to survive and thrive is when they are in a family —whether the birth family, an adoptive family, or a family of trained and nurturing caregivers.

We believe that family has an unrivaled ability to transform the life of an orphaned or vulnerable child.
