In the actual context of health crisis, young people are more likely to suffer from the economic downturn and isolation. Youth from SOS Children's Villages can not always count on family support and are even more at risk of unemployment, poverty, hunger and poor housing.

Prepare children
and youth in SOS villages
to make a successful entrance in adult life.

When they reach 18, children in foster care are regarded as adults and exit child protection. They are most often left to fend from themselves and without help, they are at risk of falling into poverty.

We work to prevent this injustice for the young people who grew up in our SOS villages.
