The Left Behind Foundation was born of a desire among several friends to help some of the most impoverished and desperate orphaned children around the world.
One of our Co-Founders, Billy Eldridge, was working across China and experienced first hand the struggles that rural orphans face on a daily basis. This instilled in us the urge to make a collective effort towards tackling the global issue of neglected and left behind children.
Whatever the cause may be; displacement from war torn areas, the cruel backlash of rural-urban migration or simply negligent or oblivious parents, we will be there to offer those left behind a vital lifeline.
Our Vision, Mission & Values
Over 1 billion children on OUR PLANET live in poverty.
Our Vision – No child should want for the most basic human needs.
Our Mission – To provide aid to as many of the estimated 50 million uprooted, displaced, forgotten and left behind children as possible. Alongside partner organisations we will offer support that is readily available and adaptable to orphans across the globe.
Our Values: Accountability – We are committed to using resources responsibly, generating achievable and measurable objectives, and being continually transparent with supporters and partners.
Our Values: Compliance – We vow to remain abreast of and compliant with all rules and regulations surrounding working with children. Furthermore, we vow to only work with organisations who share these values.
Our Values: Equality – We do not discriminate against any individual or group on grounds of race, gender, disability, belief, age, sexual orientation, financial status or socio-economic background. We believe clearly and unshakeably in equal rights for every single human being. No life is any more or any less important than the next.
We pledge to uphold the highest standards of professionalism and personal conduct, to never compromise our reputation, and to always act in the best interests of the children.
It’s all about the children
The Left Behind Foundation was conceived and established for one purpose – to improve the lives of as many forgotten and left behind children as possible. We are primarily concerned with the following areas of focus; early years and higher education programmes, daily meal, sustainable crop and clean water programmes and financial relief programmes for orphaned children. The funds we raise will be used to support these causes.
We will be working in collaboration with several international organisations on upcoming projects and will update you all as and when we do.
