Orphans International Worldwide (OIWW) has worked to support orphaned children in Africa, Asia, and the Americas since its founding in 1999. Today, OIWW supports orphan care in a dozen countries located along the equator. OIWW’s long-term goal is to end orphanages globally, eventually placing children in their own extended families. OIWW is committed to spending as little on overhead as possible, and its Global Officers have embraced the motto, “Not a job, but a life” since inception.
OIWW is a 501(c)3 organization incorporated in the State of New York.
