Worldwide Orphans Foundation

To transform the lives of orphaned children to help them become healthy, independent, productive members of their communities and the world.

We believe that institutionalized children must be integrated in their own communities and cultures, and to that end, all WWO programs include orphans and children from the local areas.  http://wwo.org/

Worldwide Orphans Foundation (WWO) was founded in 1997 by Dr. Jane Aronson, a renowned pediatric infectious disease and adoption medicine specialist, who has dedicated her life to working with children. WWO addresses children’s physical and mental health, their education and their ability to plan for and to achieve that is productive and fulfilling in their own countries

"The Ranger Program is WWO’s only US-based program and sends volunteers to work in the countries we serve. The first volunteers - so called Rangers - were college students but over time, the ranks have included medical students and practicing professionals with specialized skills, doctors who help establish medical protocols or youngsters with HIV/AIDS…athletes who help kids organize soccer teams … artists who open up new ways for children to communicate … actors who help orphans tell their stories through drama … and even family groups with a specific project to complete. There are three types of Rangers: Global Arts, Orphan and Service Rangers "
