SOS Children's Villages in Les Cayes
The SOS Children's Village Les Cayes was made possible thanks to funds from a variety of donors, as well as the support of SOS Children’s Villages member associations in Sweden, Germany, Norway, France, Austria, the USA, Netherlands and Luxembourg.
The ongoing SOS Children’s Villages Emergency Programme for Haiti, launched after the 2010 earthquake, includes a series of construction, reconstruction and renovation projects. With the help of its donors and partners, SOS Children’s Villages has also made significant investments in Haiti’s educational system, with the construction or renovation of eight schools. In addition, SOS Children's Villages supports community centres, family strengthening programmes, vocational training centres and its three Children's Villages in Santo/Port-au-Prince, Cap Haitien and Ley Cayes.
SOS Children’s Village Les Cayes, the newest, will comprise private family homes for 14 SOS families and one house for the 13 SOS ‘aunts’, who help the SOS mothers look after the children. The village is planned to support up to 135 children.
Apart from the SOS mothers and aunts SOS Children's Village Les Cayes will be staffed by social workers, two family facilitators, one child development assistant, an administrative secretary, and Village Director Volny Etienne.
An office for administration and a house for overnight visitors to the village are also on site. With almost 26,000 m2 in land, the SOS Children’s Village Les Cayes includes ample play, recreation and communal areas for its 14 families.
SOS Social Centres in Haiti aim is to help families, in particular women and children, living in communities neighbouring the SOS Children's Villages to gradually escape from poverty, and to help young people become self-reliant.
