A loving home for every child!

SOS Youth Homes

SOS Children’s Villages understands the importance of local customs and traditions. While it is appropriate for young children both boys and girls to live and grow up together as a family, it is also important to enable both boys and girls to become more mature and independent, especially during adolescence.

When our children reach the age of 11- 12, Boys are sent to a specially built ‘Youth Home’. Creating distance and separating the boys and girls at this stage is important, both, for cultural reasons as well as for their healthy mental development. The Youth homes are an essential part of SOS and are maintained by a Youth Home director.

In the Youth Home, the boys start to live more independently, like brothers among one another. New bonds are built where the older boys mentor and even tutor the younger boys, helping them in their studies and other issues. The boys also understand that soon they would be grown-ups, with a good education and a job and that they would eventually go into the world to live on their own and build their future.

Constant career counselling, sports events and other extracurricular activities help towards the development of these boys into young successful adults. Even though a distance is created when the boys are moved to a Youth Home, they are allowed to regularly visit the Children’s Village to meet their siblings and ‘mothers’.

Currently, the Youth Home facility is functional in the following cities with plans for further expansion.
