SOS Children's Villages International
SOS Children's Villages www.sos-childrensvillages.org 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, our activities focus on children without
parental care and children of families in difficult circumstances.
We work on family-based, long-term care of children who can no longer
grow up with their biological families. At our SOS Children's Villages children
experience reliable relationships and love once again. They grow up in a stable
family environment and are supported individually until they become independent
We also work on
family strengthening programmes by supporting disadvantaged families to prevent
crisis that can in the worst-case scenario lead to place children in
out-of-home care. Our family strengthening programmes build on families' and
communities' resources, on their ability to organise themselves and on their
responsibility for the well-being of the children
The Continental Office Latin America and Caribbean (LAAM) supports capacity building and development in national associations and in different areas of work. It leads and guides the development of programmes, strategies and policies in LAAM.
