Children need food, clothing, shelter, security, love, and hope. Many around the world have nothing and no one. They need friends.

Friends of the Orphans (FOTO), a 501(c)3 nonprofit, nonsectarian organization, was founded in 1965. Making a difference, one child at a time. That's what we do.

Orphaned and abandoned children are helped to overcome the odds and achieve success in their lives. Through the support of loyal contributors like you, thousands of children have received the individual care, guidance, and education necessary for breaking the cycle of poverty. 

The main beneficiary of our support is Nuestros Pequenos Hermanos (NPH), which was founded by Father William Wasson. Orphaned and abandoned children are raised in NPH homes in El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Mexico, and Nicaragua. Over 10,000 children have been raised in this unique and loving family since 1954.

Become a friend, a sponsor, of one of these wonderful children.
