Our work

SOS Children’s Villages offers a safe and nurturing family-like environment to almost 80,000 children and young people without parental support in more than 570 communities around the world. We also work to strengthen families through counselling, skills training and community development to ensure self sufficiency and prevent the breakdown of family units.

In emergencies we are on the ground helping families cope with disaster, including the provision of child-friendly spaces, trauma counselling, family reunion, and access to communications technology to stay in contact with loved ones.
