Make Sure No Child Grows Up Alone

Experts agree that a nurturing family is the most important factor for a happy, healthy childhood. Sadly, there are 220 million children worldwide — that’s 1 out of every 10 children — who have lost or are on the verge of losing their family.

Alone in the world, many of these innocent children end up sleeping on the streets and must work and earn money instead of going to school and getting an education. They are exposed to exploitation in the forms of trafficking, sexual abuse and recruitment by armed groups.

A recent study by Harvard University showed that a nurturing caregiver gives a child the best possibility to thrive and reach their full potential. The same study indicated that the earliest experiences a child has in their childhood chart the course for the rest of their lives.That’s why SOS Children's Villages works around the world—in 134 countries and territories—to make sure that every child grows up in a loving, stable family.

Show the 220 million children without a family that they're not forgotten. Sign our pledge to recognize the importance of family and to do your part in making sure that no child grows up without one.
