We are now able to accept child sponsorships in Kosovo.

Kosovo is a UN administered landlocked territory within Serbia and Montenegro. It has for many centuries been the scene of conflict between the majority Albanians and the minority Serbs, who regard Kosovo as the birthplace of Serbia.

In 1999, during the civil war, over one million Albanians fled Kosovo for Albania and returned when the UN took over the administration of the territory. Kosovo is one of the poorest regions in Europe. Unemployment is high and the infrastructure is in urgent need of upgrading. Commercial activity has not recovered from the civil war. In 2007 discussions took place on the future independence of Kosovo - welcomed by Kosovo Albanians and rejected by Serbia.

SOS Children began working in Kosovo in 2000 following long negotiations with the interim
government in Kosovo and the local authorities. The plan was to build an SOS Social Centre with an SOS Nursery and playground in Pristina, the capital of Kosovo, to act as a transit home for orphaned babies and young children who were being put up for adoption.

There is now a Children's Village in Pristina, home to five SOS families. Alongside this, we are running a Family Strengthening Programme designed to help children from vulnerable families stay in their care.
