SOS Children's Villages - International

Volunteer Opportunities: Yes


In 1949, Hermann Gmeiner laid the foundations of the first SOS Children’s Villages in Imst, Austria where forty Austrian children would find homes after the desolation of World War II. Just a few years later, SOS Villages had been created in Germany, France, and Italy, all serving children who had been orphaned or abandoned.
