SOS Children’s Villages has been working here on the outskirts of Montevideo since 1964. Our social centres offer a family strengthening programme, which aims to alleviate hardship in the community in a holistic and sustainable manner. Our services include a day-care centre and childminding programme, which allow working parents and single mothers to leave their children in safe hands while they are out making a living. Children can be looked after during morning hours and we offer supervised study time and classes in the afternoons, as well as supervision during school holidays.
