About Us

Whole Child International is devoted to improving the lives of orphaned, abandoned, abused, and neglected children worldwide. We work to restructure existing children’s institutions to focus on children’s emotional needs, ultimately creating the possibility for healthy integration into society. Through partnerships with leading academics, technique innovators, and local service providers, Whole Child International brings the latest research and innovative training to care providers in the most resource-challenged regions in the world.

While the staggering numbers of institutionalized children might seem overwhelming, Whole Child International is developing cost-effective and replicable models of intervention for maximum impact and reach.
