SOS Children’s Villages receives no money from the UK government. We rely on voluntary donations. With the generous support we receive from Charitable Trusts and Foundations every year, we are able to improve the lives of children and families at risk around the world.

As we work in 125 countries around the world, Trusts and Foundations can support SOS Children’s Villages in different ways. You could support a specific country, an SOS Village, or a programme.

We are working with a number of Charitable Trusts and Foundations with whom we have built strong partnerships.

“ Thomas Cook Children’s Charity are very excited to be supporting the Family Strengthening Programme in Malaga, Spain this year. It’s important that we have a positive impact and improve children’s lives in all of our communities – including those where we send our customers. A huge thanks to our colleagues and customers who make all of this possible by supporting us. ”

You can expect:

  1. Thorough monitoring of projects to highlight how many children and families are benefitting from the funded work
