As a sponsor, you provide the critical essentials for a child: food, clothing, shelter and medical care. However, your gift does so much more—ensuring that a child grows up in a family surrounded by a loving parent and siblings. Children living in our SOS Children’s Villages families benefit from more than 70 years of our expertise caring for vulnerable children, including trauma support for children coming from difficult circumstances. Your sponsored child also receives a quality education and a tailored development plan so they can reach their full potential.
Additionally, your sponsorship gift strengthens the child’s greater community. We have devoted decades to building lasting relationships with children, families and communities around the world. SOS Children’s Villages schools and medical clinics service children in our families as well as other children and families in the area. Additionally, vocational programs teach job skills to children, youth and adults from SOS Children’s Villages families and the surrounding community so they can earn an income and eventually become self-reliant.
