In times of the Corona crisis, it is more important than ever to give children and young people in need the chance of a self-determined life!

  • SOS Children's Villages helps 1.5 million people worldwide in more than 2,700 programs in 137 countries
  • SOS Children's Villages promotes the education, talents and skills of children and young people so that they have a chance at a self-determined life
  • The SOS Children's Villages stand up for the rights of all children. The special concern is for those children who have to grow up without parents or are in danger of losing their parents

SOS Children's Villages worldwide is an independent, non-governmental and non-denominational aid organization that has been helping children, young people and families in need since 1949.

Every child is unique, so the SOS Children's Villages also support each child individually. Children develop themselves and their talents and abilities best when there is someone who is there for them and believes in their potential. They need a caring family environment.

The SOS Children's Villages support children in their individual personalities and accompany them holistically. Thanks to education, medical care and psychological support, the children manage to grow out of their predicament: they can draw up a plan for their future, do an apprenticeship or study. In this way, they manage to stand on their own two feet.
