From September 15th – October 15th, Hispanic or Latino Heritage Month is celebrated in the United States to pay tribute to the generations of Hispanic Americans who positively influence and enrich the nation and the world. At SOS Children’s Villages (Aldeas Infantiles SOS, translation to Español), we’re taking this opportunity to tell you about our work in Latin America and the Caribbean.

Our work significantly improves lives. In any region of the world, poverty and social and economic instability can have terrible effects on families; in some instances, these realities mean that parents are forced to place their children in vulnerable situations. Subjected to these effects, parents may even become unfit to care for their own children. Through our SOS Villages, child care, and Family Strengthening programs, we prevent family breakdown and provide the best quality care to children who need it most. Our work has an incredibly positive impact on families’ lives.

Our work in Latin America supports:

  • 97,000 children and families through Family Strengthening programs and social centers
  • 13,500 children through our SOS Villages and youth facilities
  • 8,400 children from communities surrounding SOS through their attendance at SOS Kindergartens and SOS Schools
  • 1,000 youth and adults through participation in our vocational training programs
  • 3,300 medical services administered to children and adults during 2013

SOS Children’s Villages works in a total of 23 Latin American countries, 20 of which are Spanish speaking. Click on the name of the country below for more information about our work and programs:
