We believe that every child has the right to live within a family and to grow surrounded by love, respect and security.
The family-based child care model of the SOS Children's Villages is based on 4 principles that satisfy the basic needs of every child:
Each SOS child has an SOS mother. She is the main caregiver who lives with her SOS children and creates the homey atmosphere they were deprived of.
Brothers and Sisters
Each SOS child has SOS brothers and sisters. They share the joys of brotherhood and build with each other long lasting relationships.
Each SOS child lives in an SOS house he can call home. It is where he can spend time with his family, share meals around the dining room table, and where he can sleep in his own warm bed.
Each SOS child lives in an SOS village. It is his first experience towards a healthy social life. He is offered support and assistance by the village director and a specialized pedagogical team.
