Having someone who loves you and protects you when you are a child is not a given.
Everywhere, children are neglected, abandoned, orphaned, abused, on the move. These children who lack adequate parental care live in a blindspot where their needs and rights are unfulfilled, in the indifference of society.
This year we celebrate the anniversary of two international agreements that commit governments to care and protect children all over the world – the Convention on the Rights of the Child and the Guidelines for the Alternative Care of Children.
SOS Children’s Villages International is setting up a global campaign to build on the momentum and put invisible children in the spotlight, so that they receive the necessary care and protection to thrive.
Thanks for showing interest by landing on this page. With this small action you have contributed to making these children visible. You have also given important feedback to us to move in the right direction. More on the campaign will be available in September at www.sos-childrensvillages.org
