Family Strengthening Programme

The Family Strengthening Programme is a preventive intervention designed to prevent children from being abandoned or losing parental care. At present, there are over 17000 children and total no. of beneficiaries including children and family is 36311 at 32 locations across India under this scheme. These children belong to socio-economically vulnerable cross-section of society i.e. children of single women, widows and below poverty line families. The FSP is run in areas that fall within a 30km radius of an SOS Children’s Village. The aim of the FSP is to lift families out of the vicious cycle of poverty and help them reach self-reliance.
