    OneSky teaches communities and caregivers to provide nurturing responsive care and early education that unlocks the vast potential hidden in our world's most vulnerable young children.
    Founded in 1998 to provide care for institutionalized children in China, OneSky is now working toward large-scale, practical application of its innovative yet proven early childhood intervention models in Asia.
    OneSky's early intervention models address the needs of at-risk children in a variety of circumstances, including China's "economic orphans" whose parents leave their impoverished villages to find jobs in faraway cities and Vietnam's children of factory workers whose parents cannot find quality daycare during their long hours at work. OneSky also now operates programs in Mongolia and Hong S.A.R.
    To date, OneSky has trained thousands of caregivers to provide life-changing care that has directly impacted the lives of more than 200,000 at-risk children and indirectly, millions.
