Children are at the Heart of Everything We do.
Every five minutes a child dies as a result of violence.
Advocating for children’s rights, voices and lives.
Stronger families support children.
Setting young adults up for success.
Belonging to a family means growing up feeling safe
We know it in our hearts, and study after study confirms it, that what happens in childhood has a lasting impact throughout our lives. A stable, loving family is the foundation every child needs to learn and grow.
SOS Children’s Villages is the largest non-governmental agency dedicated to ensuring that every child has a loving home that provides these foundations.
OUR UNIQUE FOCUS AREAS: QUALITY CARE THROUGHOUT A CHILD’S LIFE
Actively advocating for children’s rights, and teaching children and youth to become their own advocates so that the voice of future generations is loud and clear.
The devastation of humanitarian and natural disasters weakens communal and familial resilience, threatening the stability, care and protection of the children who need it most.
Providing stability and loving families to children and young adults who have been orphaned or abandoned, and ensuring that they are supported, encouraged and loved throughout their lives.
Combining short-term aid and long-term guidance to strengthen families and to protect vulnerable children from trafficking, labor and other threats to their safety.
Empowering the next generation, and providing them with the education, tools, encouragement and support to build their own futures.
We focus not just on what children need right now, but also on building the foundation for a better tomorrow.
