SOS Children’s Village of China is a welfare institution for the care of orphans,which is a cooperative effort made by SOS-Kinderdorf International and Chinese Government.

 

The first SOS Children’s village in China was built in 1984. Thanks to the profound concern of the Chinese Government and with the sincere cooperation and great help from SOS Kinderdorf International, particularly from Dr. Hermann Gmeiner, the founder of SOS Children Village, Mr. Helmut Kutin, the Honorary President of SOS Kinderdorf International and Mr. Siddhartha Kaul, the President of SOS Kinderdorf International. SOS Children's Village of China has made great achievements. Up to now, there are 2 Hermann Gmeiner Schools in Yantai and Qiqihar, and 10 SOS Children's Villages that have been established in Tianjin, Yantai, Qiqihar, Nanchang, Kaifeng, Chengdu, Putian, Urumqi, Lhasa and Beijing.

 

As a charitable organization to provide orphans with relief in society, the family type care for orphans has been adopted in SOS Children's Villages. Every village has 12-18 families while each family usually fosters 7-8 kids aged below 14 with a single woman recruited to act as a mother. In the past two decades, a great number of orphans were leading a happy life with family's warm and mother's love in SOS Children's Villages. They have fully experienced enjoyment of health care, compulsory education, vocational training, employment and the right of personal safety.

 

In every village, boys above 14 will live in the Youth Apartment. There are teachers tutoring their study and managers with aunts taking care of their life. In the SOS Kindergarten, SOS children and children from other community live and study together. Therefore, the SOS children can acquaint themselves with the society earlier.

 

SOS Children’s Villages of China has received generous donation and love from International organization, government, all social sectors, national and international enthusiastic people. In the SOS Children’s Villages, orphans can have not only a warm home, but also a bright future. As time goes by, many SOS children have taken up their posts and became useful persons to the society. Life in SOS Children’s Villages has made unforgettable happy memories on everyone.

 

Mothers and co-workers of SOS Children's Villages are working hard for children's growth. The new interpersonal relationships with equality, unity, love, harmonious and mutual help have been established in the SOS Children's Villages. The SOS Children's Villages in China have become the windows of building spiritual civilization and the unique social welfare charities in the local communities.
