AO Foundation International is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit. We serve as a global portal for philanthropy highlighting several well established and efficient charities, such as the GlobalGiving.org initiatives. Our primary focus is to help provide sustainable support for children, orphaned by natural disaster and conflict.

Founders: Richard Gannaway, Maya Christobel and Miriam Stockley
