Global Relief Efforts
The Anthony Robbins Foundation would like to offer its heartfelt compassion to the victims of natural disasters across the globe. The Foundation is passionate about participating in the coordination of reconstruction activities, and evaluates funding requests on an ongoing basis. As men and women across the world begin to rebuild, the Anthony Robbins Foundation takes honor in providing hope and funding support to suffering communities.
These are a few of the organizations we have been privileged to support:
The Anthony Robbins Foundation made a donation to Save the Children’s Japan Earthquake Tsunami Children in Emergency Fund in support of their efforts to provide aid in the aftermath of the natural disasters in Japan. Save the Children is the world’s leading independent organization with a vision to achieve immediate and lasting change in the lives of children. After the disaster struck, Save the Children deployed emergency response teams to assess the needs of children and their families.
Save the Children reports that as a result of the Japan earthquake and tsunami:
- Thousands of individuals and families have lost homes, leaving children and adults displaced amongst the wreckage
- Over 5,500 schools have sustained substantial damage.
- At least 100,000 children have been affected by this disaster, approximately 80 of which have been orphaned
“Some of the children saw bodies in the trees,” said Hiroko Akama, a teacher at Kazuma elementary school in Ishinomaki. “One girl saw her mother swept away in the tsunami. Lots of the children are very withdrawn and quiet. In the future, when they remember what has happened, I don’t know how they will cope.”
Children are Frightened and Sad

According to their website, Save the Children established multiple child-friendly spaces, where children are able to play with other children to allow parents to work on recovery, in evacuation centers where displaced families are staying. Due to the extreme nature of the conditions facing children and families, Save the Children is developing a three year assistance strategy. The initial goal is to help provide essential relief items and launch child protection activities. Once stability has been established, Save the children will work to help restore children’s sense of security and normalcy.
As outlined on the Save the Children website, all donations to the Japan Earthquake Tsunami Children in Emergency Fund are used exclusively to provide disaster relief and support for Japanese Children. The fund will support both immediate relief efforts as well as long-term recovery plans put into place to restore education and childcare.

Cherish Our Children International
Over the past four years, The Anthony Robbins Foundation has provided funding to Cherish our Children International's Bridge to Peace project. http://www.cherishourchildren.org/israel.html
The Bridge to Peace project brings Israeli and Palestinian youth together through the game of soccer. It is hoped that through play, children will learn tolerance, teamwork and confidence; if as young children they have these values instilled, as adults they will be inclined to live in peace with each other.
Hebron Orphanage, India
Over the past 40 years, Hebron Children’s Home (formally Hebron Orphanage) has saved homeless orphans from dying of starvation on the streets of India. These orphan children have been given love, life and a future. The Anthony Robbins Foundation adopted Hebron Orphanage located in southern India following the 2004 Tsunami. The Orphanage has expanded its facilities, and now accommodates 340 children. The Foundation was delighted to provide funding to support Hebron’s immediate need of building a new stand-alone boy’s dormitory, enabling the number of male residents to increase to 200, and to allow the current boy’s dormitory to be used as a library and classrooms.
Langfang Children's Village, Beijing China
The Langfang Children's Village in Beijing, China was founded to support Mainland China 's orphaned and special needs children. Many children come to the village because they are abandoned at the front gates or brought to the Langfang Children's Village by locals. It is home to over 90 orphans from approximately ten different orphanages scattered throughout China. China is working hard at improving the plight of orphans, but as a developing country with over 5 million orphans the problem is simply too large.
The Langfang Children's Village is designed to model a normal family environment, de-emphasizing the institutional feel often associated with traditional orphanages. Every child lives in a freestanding home with house parents and their own yard to play in. The Anthony Robbins Foundation provides monthly funding to the Langfang Children's Village to support the daily necessities of the children, as well as medical treatment at their on-location clinic. This collaborative effort is contributing to the well-being of these beautiful children, allowing the Foundation to work toward fulfilling its mission of global impact.
The Anthony Robbins Foundation proudly connects with non-profit organizations throughout the world. Our goal is to meet the challenges of our global community, come up with solutions and TAKE ACTION! We visit and provide in-kind donations to schools, hospitals, and shelters for the homeless; nurturing, feeding and mentoring those in need.
