Around the world, millions of children are living as orphans when they could be in the arms of loving families.


    BEB works to make that happen.


    8 million children live in institutions worldwide.

    Without a digital identity, institutionalized children face a bleak future. The primary reason: countries lack the digital infrastructure to know who these children are, where they come from, and how they might move back to family.


    A family makes all the difference in a child’s life.


    Institutionalized children often experience neglect that leads to increasingly poor mental and physical health. But when institutionalized children are placed in a nurturing family-based setting, those issues diminish.2 They thrive.


    BEB’s Children First Software is equipping governments to send children home.

    Children First Software can help unite thousands of children with families.


    Children First Software (CFS) follows the principles of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, guiding authorities through a five-phase process that begins with the creation of a child’s digital profile and continues even after the child is reunited with relatives or adopted.
