A loving home for every child

About SOS


SOS Children’s Villages is an international children's charity that offers safe and nurturing family homes to over 80,000 orphaned and abandoned children in over 130 countries and territories around the world.

Through over 550 Children’s Villages, SOS offers orphaned and abandoned children a family and a loving home with a mother to care for and support them in a safe environment where their needs for food, health and shelter are met.

SOS Children’s Villages also keep families together through skills training and community development to ensure self-sufficiency and prevent child abandonment.

Since 1949, SOS Children’s Villages has been guided by a basic principle: a loving home for every child. We are the largest charity working with orphaned and abandoned children.

What Makes Us Unique

When a child loses everything, SOS Children's Villages is there to give them a family and a home. We raise orphaned and abandoned children and provide them with all the things a normal family would: food, clothing, education, medical care but most of all, hope.

Our Vision

  • Is for every child to belong to a family, and grow up with love, respect, and security. Goals


  • To provide or strengthen families for children in need.
  • To provide children and families with the tools and resources to live happy, healthy lives.
  • To work with communities to ensure that they can support the needs of children and families.
