About Us

Help is Our Main Goal

"Every child belongs to a family and grows with love, respect and security"

SOS Kinderdof International was founded by Austrian philanthropist Herman Gmeiner in Imst Austria in 1949. He was committed to helping children in need, children who had lost their homes, their security and their families as a result of the second World War. With the support of many donors and co-workers, SOS Childrens Villages has grown to help children allow over the world. From the first Village in Imst Austria, SOS Childrens presence is now in 135 counties and territories.

Our Mission: We build families for children in need, we help them shape their own futures and we share in the development of their communities
