About OnTheirOwn

Most children who live in orphanages around the world will never be adopted.

If a permanent, loving family is not in their future, they need health, encouragement, education, job skills and self-sufficiency to live a productive life.

OnTheirOwn is an outgrowth of Gladney’s partnerships with the children’s affairs offices in each country we serve, helping to fund government-approved programs to support the children left behind.

With your support, these children will age out of their orphanages at 18 equipped with the knowledge and hope they need for a safe, self-sufficient future on their own.
