Who we are

SOS Children’s Village Albania is a non-governmental, humanitarian and non-profit organization. Since 1995, we have been working on improving the quality of life of children and youth without parental care, empowering families at risk, economic independence of youth from vulnerable groups, as well as providing assistance in emergency situations through various types of support. Despite the family-type care and support to the family, we actively advocate for the rights of children and young people.

We are a member of the International Organization SOS Children’s Villages, founded in 1949, which today provides support to more than 1,200,000 people in more than 136 countries and territories in the world.
