SOS Children’s Villages is an independent, non-governmental social development organization. We respect each religion and culture, and work in countries and communities where our mission will make a lasting contribution to economic and social development.
We work in the spirit of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child and we promote these rights throughout the world. SOS was founded in Austria in 1949 by Hermann Gmeiner. His basic idea still holds true today: every child should benefit from having a mother, brothers and sisters, and be able to live in a house and a village, growing up with a feeling of belonging and security. Based on these four simple principles, SOS children’s villages have grown over the years into an international organization that helps children and their families all over the world.
Funded mainly by individual donors, SOS operates 567 villages in 134 countries, as well as more than 1,900 additional facilities such as kindergartens, schools, youth facilities, vocational training centers, and medical centers (hospitals). In Africa, SOS operates in Algeria, Angola, Benin, Botswana, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cameroon, Cape Verde, Central African Republic, Chad, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ivory Coast, Djibouti, Egypt, Equitorial Guinea, Ethiopia, The Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Guine-Bissau, Kenya, Lesotho, Liberia, Madagascar, Malawi, Mali, Mauritius, Morocco, Mozambique, Namibia, Niger, Nigeria, Rwanda, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Republic of Somaliland, South Africa, South Sudan, Sudan, Swaziland, Tanzania, Togo, Tunisia, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe. SOS also sets up emergency relief programs in order to help victims of natural disasters, war or crisis. All in all SOS supports more than 1,5 million children and their families.
