We believe that children everywhere deserve more from life than the basics for survival such as food, water and shelter. Children have the right to grow up feeling loved, safe and supported. They are entitled to a happy childhood, and the chance to build a better future for themselves. But around the world, 220 million children grow up without the care they need. SOS Children’s Villages UK is part of a global federation of 140 local SOS Children’s Villages associations working together across 136 countries and territories worldwide to ensure that children grow up in a stable environment and feel loved, safe and supported. We work with children and families living through poverty, conflict, man-made and natural disasters. By supporting them to grow into resilient and independent adults who can contribute to their communities, we are helping to bring about positive and lasting change.
