Proud Sponsor of the 2020 Joint Networking Cocktail SOS Children's Villages Ghana - A Beacon of Hope for the Less Privileged. 

SOS Children’s Villages was founded by Hermann Gmeiner in 1949 to provide long-term support to children who had lost their homes or families in the Second World War by offering them a new family environment. In Ghana, SOS Children’s Villages was founded in 1974, with presence in Tema, Asiakwa, Kumasi and Tamale.

SOS Children's Villages Ghana provides alternative care options to children who through no fault of theirs have lost parental care. Children of different ages and backgrounds live together in a home with a full-time parent,-an SOS Mother- who is carefully recruited, and given extensive training to ensure she can provide them a home where they can grow with love, security and respect. Over the years we have provided holistic quality child care and protection to orphaned and abandoned children so they have the opportunity to grow into responsible and contributing members of society 

The SOS Family Strengthening (FS) programme works in vulnerable communities with families and children at risk of losing parental care to reduce their vulnerability and ensure the children remain in the safety net of their families. FS works directly with families and communities to help them to effectively protect and care for their children, in cooperation with local authorities and in collaboration with other relevant stakeholders. Beneficiary families are empowered through capacity building and acquisition of entrepreneurial skills through partner Community Based Organizations to enable them take future action in responding to the needs of orphans and vulnerable children within their respective communities. So far we have worked with thousands of children and their families in over 20 of the most vulnerable communities.
