OneSky for all children (formerly Half the Sky Foundation) provides love and nurture for disadvantaged children whether living in China’s social welfare institutions or in day care centers while their parents work long hours. Since it’s inception 18 years ago, the organization has grown from a handful of supporters to include 30,000 supporters world-wide, as well as a growing number of caring corporate citizens and private foundations. Over 138,000 children have benefited from HTS’ programs. OneSky is working in full partnership with the Chinese government’s Ministry of Civil Affairs to bring its critical early childhood development programs to every child living in China’s orphanages. In 2016 OneSky signed a long-term partnership with the Vietnamese government to bring its programs to that country.

Malnutrition can be catastrophic for any child. It is especially tragic for children without families caring for them, and for kids with disabilities who are often isolated from their communities. They are suffering in silence, rarely served by international and local efforts.

Under-nourished children are at higher risk for being placed and/or remaining in institutional care. Bolstering the capacity of families and communities to care for these children is a vital component to breaking the cycle that perpetuates institutionalization and its devastating impacts. SPOON creates and spreads readily accessible tools that bring critical nutrition and feeding practices to children who often go unseen.
