About SOS Children's Villages

With more than 70 years of experience, we are the world's largest nonprofit dedicated to the care of vulnerable children.

OUR MISSION
 
We build families for children in need, help them shape their futures and share in the development of their communities. SOS Children's Villages envisions a world in which every child belongs to a family and grows up with love, respect and security.

 

OUR APPROACH

Over the past seven decades, SOS Children’s Villages has expanded its village-based model to include a fully comprehensive approach of helping children, families and communities succeed long-term. We strengthen families to prevent child abandonment, provide loving homes for children who lack parental care, educate and empower children to reach their full potential and advocate for children’s rights so their voices can be heard.

 

We have a long history of building effective partnerships with governments, international organizations and community-based partners to provide individualized support to families so they can give their children the best possible start in life.
