There are an estimated 10,000,000 children living on the streets in the 120 developing countries. One of GPI’s top priorities is to rescue the entire population of street children in major cities and place them in loving, secure homes within their own country and culture—all within the next four years. In order to accommodate those who cannot be placed in adoptive homes, GPI plans to expand the Children’s Homes Initiative to provide food, clothing, shelter, education, and health care for at least 1,000,000 children.
GPI has inspired hundreds of thousands of families around the world to adopt a street child. Homes for the children are identified during the GPI Peace Rallies.
