Voices and Testimonials

Our work, your voices.

Our and your family

This is a collection of some of the most moving testimonials that we have had the privilege of receiving from some of our alumni and donors, as well as powerful quotations from corporate partners and global ambassadors, with one thing in common: a deep appreciation for child welfare and safeguarding on a local, national and global level. 

An issue that unites individuals, families, celebrities, corporations and governments alike. 


“SOS Children’s Villages provides the foundation for life to children who need a place to call home.”  

– The late Nelson Mandela, Former President of South Africa & Winner of the Nobel Peace Prize 

The SOS Community

Enetty, SOS Zimbabwe 

“When I received my sponsorship welcome packet, I actually used the opportunity to share my own personal story with my daughter. She was surprised to hear that I was an orphaned child. I quickly told her there was no way I could actually call myself an orphaned child because I had a home and mom at SOS.”  

Enetty, SOS Zimbabwe
