As an independent non-governmental organization, SOS Children’s Village Association works to protect children’s rights regardless of religion, race, gender and gender. The Association carries out its activities on children’s rights on the basis of the 1989 United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. It is one of our goals to encourage the authorities and the authorities to organize the social policies necessary for the welfare of all children and youth in the country. We stand up for children and help to inform communities and decision-makers about children’s rights. We encourage children to actively take part in the decision-making processes that affect their lives and, when possible, speak up for themselves and be heard.
Children’s rights are laid out in international, regional and national frameworks that establish the fundamental rights each child has. Children in alternative care are particularly vulnerable. We take action to amplify their voices and bring them to the forefront of policy and decision-making, working with states and partners to help ensure that children who have lost parental care or risk losing it are protected, cared for and empowered and that their rights are respected.
SOS Children’s Villages works to help build a sustainable future for all children. We put children and young people at the centre of our actions to support the Sustainable Development Goals, recognising that every single child has a right to be included in global efforts to make sustainable development a reality.
