About Us

Lumos, an international NGO founded by J.K.Rowling, helps the 8 million children currently in orphanages regain their right to a family life. At least 80% of these children are not orphans but are separated from their families primarily by poverty and disability. Orphanages deprive children of loving families and put them at risk of impaired physical, intellectual and emotional development. Lumos supports countries in reforming child care and protection systems, focusing on the health, education, and social care services that keep families together.
