Family Strengthening Programme, one of the support projects of SOS Children’s Village Association, has been carrying out its activities since 2006. Our aim with the project is to prevent children from separating from their biological families by supporting both children that are at risk of losing care of their biological families and their families within a structured program lasting between 3 to 5 years.


Social Workers build a strong cooperation with each family involved in the project and establish Family Development Plans (AGEP) for each family by identifying the needs of the family. Family Development Plans are evaluated on a regular basis and the development of the family is monitored.


Trainings For Increasing Parental Capacity

Trainings given to families by expert instructors; women's rights, children's rights, healthy eating, first aid, family communication, developmental periods in children, dental health, rulemaking, border-setting etc.

Vocational Courses

Certified courses that are provided to families in order to increase their income levels by working in a regular job and to strengthen their professional skills.

Legal Support


When the family is able to reach a sustainable structure and stand on its own feet, it is removed from the program and takes its place in the society as an independent family.  With Family Strengthening Programme  families and  children, who have been supported since 2006, continue their lives  independently.
