SOS Children in South America: Family Strengthening and Street Children

Siblings from Poa in BrazilSOS Children has been operating in South and Central America since the 1960's.

In recent years we have placed an emphasis on family support; on building up different social facilities and community-based programmes for disadvantaged families and street children. Single mothers form one of the most troubled groups in society, partly because they have few education opportunities.

SOS Children provides support in many locations: we holds courses, support networks of families who help each other. We also offer education opportunities, an employment service and loans, and run nurseries and advice centres.
