SOS Children's Villages is active in 132 countries and territories worldwide. The variety of this international work is brought together by the umbrella organisation SOS-Kinderdorf International, which unites all of the autonomous national associations.
SOS Children's Village of Sao Bernardo do Campo - SP, Brazil, is located in a wildlife sanctuary about 35 kilometers southeast of San Paulo City. SOS Children's Village of Sao Bernardo do Campo was built on a five acre wooded site near a dam and opened its doors in April 1970.
SOS Children's Village consists of twelve houses, where up to 81 children can find a new home. In addition, a house called SOS Aunts (SOS mother trainees or family helpers who support the SOS mothers during their daily work and fill in for them when they are sick or on vacation), and an area of administration and service. Children's Village SOS Children usually attend local schools.
An SOS Social Centre provides care diary up to 165 pre-school children from the local community. An SOS Youth Facility in the city sleeps up to 24 young people from SOS Children's Village. Young people tend to move from the SOS Children's Village SOS Youth mechanism when they start a vocational training course or go for higher education. With the support of young skilled workers, young people develop realistic perspectives for the future, learn to take responsibility and increasingly make their own decisions. They are encouraged to develop team spirit and create contacts with relatives and friends as well as with authorities and potential employers.
