In Kenya, the first SOS Children’s Village in Kenya was opened in 1973 in Nairobi. Additional SOS Children’s Villages were subsequently built in Mombasa (1979), Eldoret (1990), Meru (2005), and the latest village in Kisumu (2012).
SOS children's villages Kenya runs Education, Health, SOS Family Care, Family Strengthening, Advocacy and Youth Empowerment Programmes. We currently take care of over 10,000 children and youth both in our villages and community programmes
SOS Children village is a private, non-profit, non political and non-denominational welfare organization. The goal of SOS Children’s Villages is to offer orphaned and abandoned children, regardless of race, nationality or creed, a permanent home and to prepare them for an independent life. SOS children villages pursue these goals with fully qualified and highly committed staff.
Every child belongs to a family and grows with love, respect and security.
We build families for children in need, we help them shape their own futures and we share in the development of their communities.
