NO CHILD SHOULD GROW UP ALONE

NO CHILD SHOULD GROW UP ALONE

Strategy

In almost 70 years of experience in providing care to children with no parental care and children who are at risk of losing the care from their families, we have obtained a deeper understanding about the right way to provide care to children and the way in which we can aid the prevention of breakdowns of families. We do this through innovative and effective partnerships with donators, communities, governments and other organisations. Our Strategy 2030 helps us respond to the changing needs in the communities where we work, putting children with the highest social risk at the center of all our actions. In September 2015, leaders from 193 countries committed to a 15-year plan of action aimed at improving the lives of people, protecting the planet and building prosperity. The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development includes 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to end poverty, fight inequality and injustice, guarantee access to quality education and decent work, and tackle climate change. SOS Children’s Villages work with partners and states to achieve the SDG targets with the greatest possible impact on disadvantaged children and young people. We are committed to working for and with children who have lost, or risk losing parental care. These children are particularly vulnerable to suffering injustice and they often miss out on their basic rights as children. The quality of childhood sets the stage for the future development of individuals and societies. Our strategy is directly related to the SDGs so that contributions can be made towards the essential areas tackled by the SDGs, such as poverty, inequality, education, health, social and child protection and decent work.
