SOS Children’s Villages in Estonia offers children without parental care living conditions, which resemble a life in a family. Children are referred to the SOS Children’s villages by local authorities of Estonia. Our work in the families is based on 4 principles.
Children will be provided with a safe living environment, which facilitates further development. Supported by a family parent, children will be prepared according to their individual abilities to get ahead in life, once becoming an adult. Reliable relations and love, which they can experience again, will give the child an opportunity to recover from previous experiences, which have often been traumatic.
The people working at the SOS Children’s Villages are family parents – SOS mother and SOS aunt, educators, psychologist, social worker, village master, secretary and the village manager. In the children’s village pedagogical, psychological and social options are looked for every day which would be in accordance to the needs of the children in the present day and in the future.
