Accountability. To take care of orphaned children globally – and to be lead NGO within an international movement – places great responsibility on an organization and its leadership. Towards this end, Orphans International Worldwide (OIWW) instituted Global Standards in 1999 that have been posted on-line since 2001, and is represented by both N. Cheng & Co and DLA Piper. Global Honorary Advisors include or have included H.E. Haya Rashed Al Khalifa, H.S.H. Prince Albert of Monaco, Hon. Benjamin A. Gilman, and Mr. Peter Yarrow. OIWW’s electronic newsletter, OI Worldwide InterNews, is registered with the U.S. Library of Congress and was been published from 2001 until 2011. It is been replaced by The Stewardship Report Monthly published by The James Jay Dudley Luce Foundation.
Funding. OIWW is funded in part by The James Jay Dudley Luce Foundation (website) with additional support from generous friends around the world. OIWW is a 501(c)3 organization incorporated in the State of New York. OIWW has a long tradition of volunteer support and donated or subsidized office space, allowing its administrative costs to be kept well under 10%.
