We build families for children in need.
We help them shape their own futures.
We share in the development of their communities.
(Mission statement of SOS Children’s Villages)
I am a volunteeer for SOS Childrens Villages.
For more information about this organization feel free to ask. I would be happy to discuss the ways people contribute their love, commitment, and how this enriches childrens’ lives and communities all over the world.
SOS Children’s Villages is an international non-governmental social development organisation that has been active in the field of children’s rights and committed to children’s needs and concerns since 1949. In 132 countries and territories our activities focus on children without parental care and children of families in difficult circumstances.
SOS Children’s Villages is concerned about all children, particularly those who have no parental care and those whose families have to live in difficult conditions. The basis and aim of our work is to respect, promote and stand up for children’s rights. We want to use our socio-political work to make decision makers and the public aware of the problems that children face and to call for measures that will promote the well-being of children across the world. In parallel to our lobbying activities, we encourage children to actively take part in the decision-making processes that affect their lives and, if possible, to actually represent themselves.
