Our Vision

To see that every child belongs to a family and grows with love, respect and security

Our Mission

We build families for children in need.

Children that have already lost the care of their parents find a new SOS family in an SOS village; and we support and strengthen families, with children facing a significant risk of losing the care of their parents, to prevent family disintegration.


We enable children to live according to their own culture and religion and to be active members of the community. We help children to recognize and express their individual abilities, interests and talents. We ensure that children receive the education and skills training that they need to be successful and contributing members of society.


  • Breaking the cycle of child vulnerability through care.
  • Securing basic needs.
  • Building a foundation for a happy life.
  • Enabling self-reliance.

Our Values


We take action

We have challenged traditional methods of care and continue to pioneer innovative child-care approaches. We help children who have no one else to turn to. With a sensitive yet confident approach, we are determined to question, learn and take action for children around the world.


We keep our promises

We are dedicated to helping generations of children have a better life. We do this by nurturing lasting relationships with our donors, our staff and the communities in which we are rooted. We believe that by making a long-term commitment we have a meaningful and sustainable impact.


We believe in each other

We believe in each other’s abilities and potential. We support and respect one another, and build an environment where we can approach our responsibilities with confidence. In an atmosphere of trust, we are inspired to share our experiences and learn from each other.


We are reliable partners
Our greatest responsibility is guaranteeing the well-being of children by ensuring high standards of care. In doing this we are committed to using all funds and resources wisely, with respect and accountability.
