How We Help

We Help Children In Need

Children should be able to grow up in a loving family and grow up to be their strongest selves. We at SOS Children's Villages Sri Lanka work to support children and families in need.  In doing so, we act quickly and unbureaucratically, actively engage and bring in our expertise as an international organization in a variety of ways. For example, in crisis housing groups, in counseling centers, outpatient clinics and aftercare, where children, adolescents and their families find what they urgently need: relief, support and the opportunity for a new perspective.

Family Like Care

At SOS Children's Villages, we provide family-like care for children who have lost parental care. They are cared for in a home where they live with an SOS mother, their siblings, and other children. Children receive total quality care until they are ready to live independently.

Family Strengthening Program

Through our Family Strengthening Program (FSP), we provide support to struggling families. We conduct counseling, skills training, and community-based programs to help families reach self-reliance and provide proper care for their children.



Vocational Training Center

SOS Children's Villages Sri Lanka believes that every youth in need should have the opportunity to obtain a recognized vocational skill to live an independent life in society. This is one of the main concepts of youth empowerment practices the organization follows. SOS Children's Villages Sri Lanka has established 4 vocational training centres in the country to facilitate this need and has supported nearly 1434 under-privileged youth  to obtain Vocational Training Authority (VTA) recognized National Vocational Qualification Level (NVQ Level) vocational skills. 


Humanitarian Assistance

SOS Children’s Villages Sri Lanka initiated the humanitarian assistance program, in September 2022.  As with any crisis, children are disproportionately affected, and as a child welfare organization working for children's rights, we will focus on the basic needs of the individual child - food, education, health, and protection.


Child Safeguarding

Child safety is everybody's business. We in SOS Children’s Villages commit to making a safe home for children and break the cycle of violence. We work to minimize children’s exposure to risks of abuse, neglect, violence, and exploitation, and ensure that every child grows in a protective and caring environment.



Youth Empowerment

Every young person has the right to secure and sustainable employment. Opportunities like formal education, vocational training and internships will teach the youth competencies and life skills they need to find work and live independently.
