What we want to achieve
The idea of the SOS Children's Village is an important milestone in the development of a modern approach towards the welfare of children.
Deprived of their natural parents, children are placed in an environment which is as close as possible to a natural home. SOS Children's Villages meet this need by providing them with loving care, security, higher education and job-training. This allows them to live normal lives and a sense of confidence is instilled in them that develops their full potential.
The organization aims to admit children who are completely orphans or social orphans through a standard admission policy. Social orphans are the result of the mother being remarried or having an incurable disease or mental illness and, as a consequence, being unable to provide for the children.
