In addition to advocating the rights of children at a national level, SOS Children's Villages is active in protecting children at a local level in Beijing. Children who can no longer live with their families can find a loving home in one of the 15 SOS families. The children grow up with their sisters and brothers in a familial environment full of love, respect and security. The children from the SOS families are well integrated into the community: they attend the local schools and partake in lots of events organised nearby. Likewise the activities we hold are also open to neighbouring families.
