SOS Children’s Villages is a worldwide, independent, not-for-profit social development organization that has been working to meet the needs and protect the interests and rights of children since 1949.
The focus of our work is the care for children without parental care and those at risk of losing the care of their parents. In each SOS Children’s Village, we give a permanent home in a family environment to vulnerable children. Each child is looked after by an SOS mother and grows up in an SOS family with 8-10 boys and girls in a natural setting.
The care given is holistic as all the children’s needs including food, clothing, education, medical services, and others are met. In Uganda, over the past three decades, the organization has grown to realize proficient child-centered programs in Kakiri, Entebbe, Gulu, and Fort Portal.
We currently have 41,319 children being reached through our Family Like Care within the Children‘s Villages and Family Strengthening Programme in the communities.
