SOS Children's Village Juah Town

SOS Children's Village Juah Town is situated in Grand Bassa County in the country's interior.

It was opened on 19 August 2000. A little bit more than half a year after its official inauguration by SOS Children's Village's president Mr Helmut Kutin on 25 September 2002, it had to be closed again in May 2003 due to fierce fighting and the precarious situation in the country's interior.

In September 2005, SOS-mothers and children were able to finally move back to their homes. The SOS Children's Village consists of six family houses, where up to 60 children can find a new home. There is also the village director's house, a guest house for co-workers, an administration and service area, a small clinic, and a little building that houses a generator.

At the same time as the SOS Children's Village Monrovia the SOS Kindergarten and the SOS Hermann Gmeiner School started operating. The SOS Kindergarten comprises four classrooms and  some adjoining rooms. Up to 75 children can be taken care of at the SOS Kindergarten.

The SOS Hermann Gmeiner School has twelve classrooms, a physicochemical lab, administration and service area and a playground. At the moment, 315 pupils get an education at the school.
