About Us

We are an independent, non-governmental and non-profit organisation working for the holistic development of parentless children, women and children belonging to vulnerable families. Founded in 1949 in Austria, SOS Children's Villages began its operations in India in 1964. For over 50 years, we have reached out to over 25,000 children through our 32 SOS Children's Villages and 32 community projects in India. SOS Children's Villages of India was established in 1964 at Faridabad near Delhi. SOS India has worked with children, communities, disaster struck and disaster prone areas, giving hope to weary communities and families. SOS India is the largest operation within the SOS International Federation of 134 countries.

Our Mission

The first SOS Children's Village was founded by Hermann Gmeiner, an Austrian philanthropist , in 1949 in Imst, Austria. Since then, the organization has been active and expanding throughout the world. At present, SOS Children's Villages is active in over 133 countries with over 500 SOS Children's Villages and 400 SOS Youth Facilities striving for the welfare of the children in need of care and protection.

In India, the organization caters to over 25,000 children and there are 32 SOS Children's Villages in 22 states in India.
