OUR APPROACH

 

Our approach is about systemic change. In partnership with governments, NGOs, the private sector, foundations and other relief organizations, SOS Children’s Villages builds effective support systems with lasting impacts for struggling families. Our efforts enable access to education, healthcare services and employment opportunities that are essential to maintaining safe environments for at-risk children. Our long-term services focus on making families self-reliant through savings and loan associations, income-generating activities, child-rearing classes, health education, emergency response and much more.
