My 3rd Child

The reference to a 3rd child is not about SOS’ 3rd child but the Donor’s 3rd child. The mind-set in India is to have two children to complete the family. Most people don’t opt  for the 3rd child as the cost of living is very high. The SOS Campaign promotes the idea of sponsoring an underprivileged child as the “3rd Child”. This is a universal idea about a larger cause of every family with two children being encouraged to come forward and support a 3rd child which is not their biological one but any underprivileged child.  

Is it time we opten for a 3rd child? What if we told you it is? A time to brush aside the age-old popular saying of "Hum do humarein do". The 'My 3rd Child' initiative proposes to do just that. it's our way to ask the more fortunate amongst us to make space in the heart for those children who don't have what we take for granted. A family.

For thousand of children across this country, a life without a family is the norm. At SOS Children's Villages, we attempt to fill this very void in their lives. We are an organisation involved with helping and supporting abandoned children for the last 50 years, through our 32 villages scattered across the country.

And we need your help to make it possible. This initiative is not about adopting a child, but about financially aiding one as you would your own. Join us in our efforts by tweeting, updating your Facebook status, or writing on your blogs about the 3rd child. (We could share the matter, if you would allow us to). In case you would like to help in any other way, do give us a call, we'd love to hear from you!
