SOS Jordan is one of the organizations that cares for the largest number of disadvantaged children in the Kingdom. SOS concept pioneered a family approach to the long-term care of needy children. This concept is based on four principles: The Mother, Brothers and Sisters, the House and the Village. SOS Amman and Irbid Villages consist of 12 family houses, and SOS Aqaba Village consists of 8 family houses. Each family house cares for 9 brothers and sisters. The children in each family house are cared for by their SOS mother who provides them with love, security and warmth. The children live together like a natural family.|
We build families for children in need, we help them shape their own futures and we share in the development of their communities.
We build families for children in need
We work for children who are orphaned, abandoned or whose families are unable to care for them. We give these children the opportunity to build lasting relationships within a family. Our family approach in the SOS Children’s Village is based on four principles: Each child needs a mother, and grows up most naturally with brothers and sisters, in their own house, within a supportive village environment.
We help them shape their own future
We enable children to live according to their own culture and religion, and to be active members of the community. We help children to recognize and express their individual abilities,interests and talents. We ensure that children receive the education and skills training they need to be successful and contributing members of society.
We share in the development of their communities
We share in community life and respond to the social development needs of society’s most vulnerable children and young people. We establish facilities and programs that aim to strengthen families and prevent the abandonment of children. We join hands with community members to provide education and health care, and respond to emergencies.
