Orphan Opportunity Fund

Giving an opportunity to thrive to abandoned children around the world.
Project name
Orphan Opportunity Fund
Project manager
Ladislav Kossár, Lucia Kossárová

There are more than 150 million orphaned children in the world. We believe that children are our future and that every child deserves an opportunity to thrive. We strive to empower children who lost their loving parents as a consequence of wars, HIV, extreme poverty and natural disasters.

The Orphan Opportunity Fund (OOF) was founded in 2014 to bring diverse donors together and make their support as efficient as possible. We help established NGOs that provide holistic care to the orphaned children achieve greater financial sustainability. Together with their senior management we structure grants that help strengthen their brands and diversify their income. OOF already supports organisations that care for over 4000 children in India and South Africa on a daily basis.
