According to UNICEF, there are approximately 130 million orphans in the world today, with the majority in Asia, Africa, Sub-Saharan Africa, and Latin America. The overflowing orphanages worldwide are one of the major sources of a pandemic in child abuse, abduction, homelessness, and child molestation. World Orphanage Foundation (WOF) is a not-for-profit organization that works to promote awareness of and resolves issues relating to orphans and orphanages by uniting different foundations. This foundation seeks to provide resources and global platforms for the voiceless children around the world through a combination of media outlets and fundraising events.

A night of fashion and entertainment will be yoked together by Brazilian Samba Dancers, Middle Eastern Belly Dancers, and African Tribal Dancers displaying some of the rich cultures of the nations in which WOF serves in.
