Since 1949, SOS Children's Villages has cared for children who have lost parental care or who risk losing it, and has worked to defend the rights of all children.
We are independent, non-governmental and non-denominational.
We specialise in caring for children and strengthening families. We also work with community partners to ensure that children have access to all the things they need to grow, including health care and education.
In humanitarian emergencies we protect children and support families. In particular, we care for unaccompanied and separated children and work to reunite them with their families.
We give a voice to children and young people, helping them to engage directly with governments and international organisations, and we advocate side by side with them to advance children's rights.
We do these things all over the world with the help of many committed and passionate partners, donors, sponsors and friends.
