Be a catalyst for change. Invest in a girl.

SOS Children's Villages builds families for orphaned, abandoned and other vulnerable children in 135 countries, including the United States.

Girls continue to be the single most excluded group in the world. They are more likely to be exploited, denied access to education, and malnourished.

Yet, studies have shown that investing in girls creates long-term social and economic benefits for the whole world. If a girl has a stable family, an education and a healthy and safe environment, she can lift herself and her community out of poverty.

Invest in a Girl

Girls worldwide face extreme disadvantages at every turn. However, you can give one girl the biggest advantage of all: a loving, stable family.


Become an SOS Sponsor, and YOU give a girl:

A caring mother and loving family

When you sponsor a girl, you make sure that a girl who has lost her family doesn’t lose everything. Orphaned, abandoned, and vulnerable girls will grow up in one of our SOS families with an SOS Mother and sisters and brothers — with every effort made to keep biological siblings together. Each home is headed by a trained caregiver, an SOS Mother, who raises each child with the individual care and attention they need. As a family, they build emotional ties together that last a lifetime.

A stable home and supportive community

As a sponsor, you open the door to a secure and loving home for a girl. Every SOS family lives in their own house within an SOS Village. We have over 570 SOS Villages around the world. Under its roof, children enjoy a real sense of security and belonging, which is critically important for girls who need special support and protection. Living as integrated members of the local community, girls are able to grow and learn together and SOS families form a network of mutual support.

The opportunity for a quality education

When you sponsor a girl, you set her on the path towards a bright future. Every girl in an SOS family has access to quality education from kindergarten through vocational training or university. Sponsors give a girl the chance to just be a kid — to learn, grow and play in a safe and loving environment. Your sponsorship delivers education opportunities that help her break the cycle of poverty.

Building blocks for a healthy future

As a sponsor, you provide an at-risk girl with proper nutrition, urgent and ongoing medical care to be healthy and strong. Sponsoring also enables lifesaving healthcare including vaccinations, HIV/AIDS treatments and mental health programs, through our established medical centers around the world.
