Mission Statement:  Since 1949, SOS Children's Villages have been striving for the welfare of the children in need of care and protection.




Founded in 1949 and working in 136 countries and territories across five continents, every day they help thousands of children around the world to secure a better future.

By reaching out to vulnerable children and families early on, SOS Children's Villages help to transform their lives forever.

  • They work with communities and families to tackle the root causes of poverty. 

  • In emergencies, they are the first to respond, helping to rebuild lives, because children deserve more than just survival.

  • They support pregnant women, many trafficked and forced into prostitution, to escape the poverty trap and provide a secure future for their children.

Their work seeks to address both the cause and effect, intervening early, strengthening families, providing care for children, and advocacy for deeper, more meaningful systematic change.
