Get Involved

Across the world, SOS Children’s Villages offers loving homes to about 80,000 orphaned and abandoned children. A great deal of our work depends upon the support of volunteers, without them SOS Children's Villages would not be possible. Here are some ways that you can help raise funds for SOS and spread awareness about our cause.
