Since 2005, Their Future Today has helped over 16,000 children and families.
We work at a grassroots level to improve social and health care while providing education and vocational training for institutionalized and disadvantaged children. We reunite abandoned children with safe families and support them until self-sufficient. Our inclusive work with disabled children is preventing abandonment in the community and we are creating a recognized model to help overcome stigmas to give every forgotten child their right to a family, their right to an education and their right to life.
