SOS Children's Villages gives different kinds of assistance to the local population. The family strengthening programme provides support to families who are at risk of abandoning their children. Working with local authorities, we ensure that children have access to food, and we give them educational and health support. We advise parents on parenting skills and income generation. Furthermore we strengthen communities so that vulnerable members have someone to turn to in times of need.
