Home Children

Home Children was a British sourced child migration program founded by Annie MacPherson in 1869, under which more than 100,000 British children, predominantly poor or orphaned children, were sent to the British colonies of Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and South Africa with the intent of alleviating labour shortages.
