About Us

SOS Children’s Villages was funded in 1949 by a young Austrian medical student, Hermann Gmeiner, who witnessed the suffering of so many orphaned and abandoned children after World War II and felt that something has to be done to help. The acronym “SOS” stands for stands for Societas Socialis.”

SOS children’s Villages began to grow: the first children’s villages and youth families were established throughout Europe.  In the early 1970s, SOS Children’s Villages began to establish programmes in Africa.
