Are there any ways to help children from poor countries without adopting them away from their homelands?

For instance, are there any permanent solutions that could be done that would have a lasting effect on their communities so those countries wouldn't need to depend on exporting their children as solutions? If there are, why are more people not involved in pursuing those goals? Is anyone else concerned that adopting internationally isn't helping the children who are left behind and isn't improving conditions to reduce the number of children who need help there in the future? Thank you for any ideas you may have on this topic. Where does all the money go that is spent on adopting those children out of their countries? $30,000-$40,000 is a reasonable estimate spent per child. If you multiplied that by the number of children taken out of their countries each year, think how far that money could go to improve their conditions where they live so they could possibly stay with their families, or at least in their own communities. That should be enough to help all of the needy children & wouldn't that be a more effective approach for helping poor countries long-term?

Thanks for this question ~ I am glad more people are concerned about hungry, hurting children and their families that are dying for a morsel of bread to eat and a glass of clean water to drink. They hunger for love and are starved for someone to take up time with them; they do not have toys to play with like our... More

There are many organizations for this, some through churches others are major sponsor programs like, Feed the Children. BEFORE you decide, get financial information from the charity. Ask how much of the money actually goes to the children and how much do they keep. If they won't give that information, don't use them... More
