SOS Children's Villages
The Village facility is the core of our Organization and serves as a home for orphan and underprivileged children. This is where they make new friends, develop family bonds, and are given a house which is as close to a natural family as possible.
Each Village consists of 15 house units, and each house unit can accommodate up to 10 children. The house is run by a ‘mother’ who looks after the children. Growing up in such an environment gives children a sense of belonging and creates family ties where there might be none.
The first Village facility was established in the city of Lahore in 1977. Since then, SOS Children’s Villages Pakistan has expanded considerably. The Village facilities can be found in over 12 Districts of Pakistan covering every major city, including Quetta and are even serving the orphan and abandoned children of of Azad Jammu and Kashmir.
However, there are still many more children who have not been able to receive the care and support which every orphan and underprivileged child deserves in this country. SOS needs the support of our generous donors to help in developing more facilities in other areas of Pakistan and help create opportunities for our children.
