SOS children villages Ghana is a child welfare organization that provides a stable family environment for children in need, with four villages currently in operation inTema, Asiakwa, Kumasi and Tamale.
SOS Children’s Villages is active in 132 countries and territories worldwide. The variety of this international work is brought together by the umbrella organisation SOS-Kinderdorf International, which unites all of the autonomous national associations.
In all countries where SOS Children’s Villages operates, the aim is to form a national association which is its own legal entity, with its own statutes and Board of Directors. Common for all of them is membership of the international umbrella association, and the fact that their Board of Directors work on an honorary basis. Each member association has to comply with the international statutes and principles for education and child-care of SOS-Kinderdorf International, and for financial and administrative practices.
