SOS Childrens Village

Algoa Toyota Port Elizabeth staff members became aware of the SOS Children’s village right on our doorstep, and decided to knit beanies for the little ones to keep them warm in winter. The beanies were handed out to the kids, together with a goodie bag containing a colouring book, crayons and of course – something sweet! We had a lovely time visiting the little ones in their Kindergarten!

SOS Children’s Villages is an independent, non-governmental, social development organisation. Their greatest priority is to provide orphaned and abandoned children with secure homes, a quality education and a loving family environment.

SOS Children’s Villages caters to the specific needs of each community, providing day care centres, life skills training centers, social centers, family strengthening programmes, kindergartens, schools, medical centres and vocational training centres where necessary.

Currently they have just over 1000 children in their permanent care programme, and in their Family Strengthening Programme (FSP) they assist about 7 000 children in short-term care. They acknowledge the need to focus just as much on short-term care in order to reach as many children and families as possible and prevent further deterioration of family structures and care givers.

SOS children’s Villages is well aware of the need to work with local authorities, service providers and communities in order to get the greatest results. In locations where there is no local infrastructure, they run kindergartens, day care centres, schools and vocational training centres. They also give each situation its own unique attention and strategy for moving forward.
