At VAPF Group, we believe that all children and young people should grow up in a family environment in which they feel protected, and SOS Children’s Villages provides this environment for those who, for different reasons, do not have it.
That’s why, for the second year running, we have collaborated with them. We share their philosophy that all children and young people should have the same opportunities and support their primary mission which is to help to build a better future for those children and young people who find themselves in a vulnerable situation, supporting them as they fully integrate into society.
How do they achieve their mission? Thanks to the donations made by partners, sponsors, donors, and companies – like the one we have made – and to state subsidies. These provide the stability and support that many children and young people need in order to move forward with their lives and have the same opportunities as everyone else.
In 2017, for example, they were able to support 26,633 children and young people and help more than 1,600 families in Spain, and on an international level they came to the aid of over a million victims of war and natural disasters.
SOS Children’s Villages have brought their strategy into line with the Sustainable Development Goals for 2030 through the creation of campaigns such as “All children count, but not all children are counted”, as well as developing partnerships with statistical offices in different countries, since the information they collect is key in developing and improving public policies.
