Pearl S. Buck Foundation Taipei, Taiwan (Opportunity House)

(Unverified non-profit organisation)

Pearl S. Buck International is a non-profit organization with three distinct functions that operate as one with the common mission of continuing the legacy and dreams of Pearl S. Buck and her commitment to improving the quality of life and expanding opportunities for children and promoting an understanding of the values and attributes of other cultures, the injustice of prejudice, and the need for humanitarianism throughout the world.

Pearl S. Buck International is the umbrella organization under which Welcome House’s international adoption programs, Opportunity House’s child sponsorship programs, and the Pearl S. Buck House National Historic Landmark operate.

Welcome HouseĀ® was founded by Ms. Buck in 1949 as the first international, inter-racial adoption agency in the United States. Later, in 1964, the Pearl S. Buck Foundation (now called Opportunity House) was established to address the issues of poverty and discrimination faced by children in Asian countries.
