Influential people: Jane Aronson
Jane Aronson is the founder of Worldwide Orphans Foundation (WWO). Do you think every child deserves to be loved? Fed? Held? Given clean clothes and a safe place to sleep? I bet you do. So does Jane Aronson. With her army of Orphan Rangers, she has basically created an orphan Peace Corps. WWO was the first NGO to serve HIV-positive orphans in Ethiopia and Vietnam and has established programs in five countries, most recently in Haiti. She fights for those who are often forgotten, the weakest who have no one else fighting for them.
