SOS Children’s Villages began its work in Gammarth in 1983. Today, our SOS Social Centre offers a family strengthening programme, which reaches out to struggling members of the local community. We ensure that children have access to essential education, nutritional and health services, and we provide counselling where needed. We offer parents guidance on income-generating skills and parenting practices. In collaboration with local organisations, we also work towards strengthening the already existing support networks within the community. Around 400 children and their adult caregivers currently benefit from the programme.
