The first SOS Village completely funded by Canadians, the Green Family SOS Children’s Village in Ondangwa, was opened in August 2010. Eleven families provide a loving home to over 98 children now. Many of them never attended school and thanks to SOS, they are now receiving an education for the first time ever.
The impact of SOS Children’s Villages’ work in Ondangwa extends well beyond the Village: we also support 274 children and their families through our Family Strengthening Programs which offers access to essential services for children’s development and supports families to protect and care for their children by providing parents and caregivers with food, assistance with income generating activities and access to vocational training.
The SOS Kindergarten also provides learning opportunities for children in the Ondangwa SOS Village and the surrounding community.
The Green Family – SOS Children’s Village in Ondangwa continues to be funded by generous donations from Canadian individuals and corporations.
