The mission of SPOON Foundation is to improve the nutrition of orphaned, fostered, and adopted children so they can grow and thrive. SPOON seeks to:
Give as many orphans as possible the chance for healthy development
Influence nutrition policies and procedures for orphans around the world
Ensure that adopted children get the nutrition they need once they come home
SPOON is currently working on a pilot project in Kazakhstan Baby Houses (orphanages). The Orphan Nutrition Project will serve as a model for advancement of orphan nutrition policy and procedures around the globe.
Joint Council helps orphaned and vulnerable children live in a permanent and safe family by advocating on their behalf, marshaling the resources they need, educating those who serve them and mobilizing those who care. Joint Council and its partner organizations provided services to 2.1 million children and families in 2010.
