Children who have been neglected, abandoned, orphaned, or abused are given the care they need. We work with families, communities, and our partners to ensure that every child can grow up with the love, support, and guidance they need.
OUR HISTORY IN PHILIPPINES
Every child belongs to a family and grows up with love, respect and security.
We build families for children in need, we help them shape their own futures, and we share in the development of their communities.
Since beginning our work here in 1967, SOS Children's Villages Philippines has provided support to thousands of children, youth and families through our alternative care and family strenghtening programs.
FIND MORE ON OUR IMPACT
Every SOS Children’s Village provides quality alternative care in a family environment and stability to children who have lost their parents or can no longer live with them. Four to ten boys and girls of different ages live together with their SOS parent(s) in a family house, and a village community tends to be made up of around eight to fifteen SOS Children’s Village families.
In some locations, SOS families live side by side with neighbours from their communities. The children receive the same quality care as in other SOS Children’s Villages, but the SOS families are integrated in the wider communities. The children and young people in SOS Children’s Villages care attend schools and other facilities in the local community.
At SOS Children’s Villages, children are supported in their individual development, education and health.
Every effort is made to ensure that the children placed in an SOS family are those who are going to benefit most from its care. Only children who need a new, permanent home in a family environment and for whom a more suitable care placement cannot be found are considered for admission into an SOS family. Generally speaking, children up to the age of ten can be admitted. However, when a group of siblings is admitted, group members’ ages may vary.
SOS Children’s Villages works with at-risk families and communities to empower parents through a range of activities so they can adequately care for their own children, and to help prevent family breakdown.
