Welcome to Open Home Foundation International (OHFI).

We are a New Zealand-based organ­i­sa­tion working to protect and empower vul­ner­a­ble chil­dren and their fam­i­lies around the world. We believe that every child in the world has the right to belong to a home, family and com­mu­nity where they are safe and loved; to receive a good diet, health care, and edu­ca­tion; and to know that they are loved by God. We work in com­mu­ni­ties of all faiths and none.
