SOS Children’s Villages India has been a strong advocate of the concerns, rights, and needs of parentless and abandoned children in the country for the last six decades and the organisation’s high standards of accountability and transparency are reflected through the clear distribution of funds it receives from its donors, friends and corporate partners. All these years, our work has been supported extensively by donations from abroad. With the recession in Europe and the USA, foreign donations are on the decline. Since we are a self-implementing NGO unlike other large NGOs and we provide long-term care to abandoned children over a period of 24 years, we need sustained support.

Even today, more than 38% of our project costs are still met by donations from our overseas friends. To sustain our current level of work and ensure every child under our care grows up with the strong bonds to be their strongest selves, sustained domestic support is of paramount importance.
