We are always looking for ways to collaborate and give back to the world in ways that are outside of our regular work-related projects. One of our favorite organizations that we would like to highlight is the SOS Children’s Villages International, an inspiring non-profit organization dedicated to humanitarian efforts worldwide.
Headquartered in Austria, SOS Children’s Villages International works hard to give better lives to children worldwide who may be less fortunate. From their website: “SOS Children’s Villages International comprises 118 national SOS Children’s Villages associations. As members of the federation, each SOS Children’s Villages association is committed to applying the federation’s statutes, standards for quality child care, and stringent financial and administrative practices.”
SOS Children’s Villages have supported over 4 million children over the past 70 years through their efforts of providing alternative families for children who otherwise are without adequate parental care. They also implement programs to support education, health, and emergency response programs for the disadvantaged youth within these communities.
Through SOS Children’s Villages, anyone can sign up to sponsor a child in need in 136 countries within 6 continents. Sponsorships help to supply a child with healthcare, safety, community, advocacy, education, and relief efforts that are key to the operations of the organization.
Niyam is proud to work with SOS Children’s Village in Bangalore, India as a sponsor, and we fully support the mission and drive of this organization. The SOS Children’s Village welcomed us to their family with a drawing of their village, proudly displayed in our office!
