Establishment: 2014
Type: Charity
Focus Region: Global reach with a focus on six countries: the United Arab Emirates, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the Sultanate of Oman, the State of Qatar, the State of Kuwait, and the Kingdom of Bahrain.
Sectors: Children’s Welfare and Education 


When children can no longer live with their families, we work with communities and state partners to provide children with loving and supportive alternative care. We work with children, families, communities, and states to prevent family breakdown and ensure that children’s rights are met.      


SOS Children’s Villages International is the umbrella organization for the global federation of national SOS Children’s Villages associations. We work together with a single mission: to ensure that every child grows with love, security and respect.


No child should grow up alone


The objective of the Gulf Area Office is to build long-term strategic partnerships for the benefit of children and to raise awareness of SOS Children’s Villages programs and impact across the globe and in particular, in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region.
