“Protecting Children. Providing Solutions”
Lumos, the charity founded in 2005 by J.K. Rowling, was created with the aim of ending the systematic institutionalization of children. Institutionalization affects over eight million children across the globe, who are denied a family and placed in so-called “orphanages”, often due to poverty, disability, and discrimination.
In August 2013, we caught up with Lumos’s Head of Communications, Vicky Gillings, to discuss the charity and its activities.
