We build families for children in need.
We help them shape their own futures.
We share in the development of their communities.
(Mission statement of SOS Children's Villages)
The purpose of SOS Children's Villages (SOS-KINDERDORF) is to help children who are in need of care because they have lost their parents or are homeless for other reasons.
SOS Children's Villages provide abandoned, orphaned and destitute children with a new and permanent home. The children receive a suitable education and sound preparation for independence in adult life. The practical implications of the SOS Children's Village idea have had a powerful influence on work with abandoned and orphaned children worldwide.
