Is it possible to go on the field?
SOS Children’s Village doesn’t send their volunteers on the field! We manage our programs in close collaboration with national associations of SOS Children’s Village International and their local contacts, thereby contributing to (in) strengthening the local economy and communities.
If you wish to engage in one of the 136 countries or territories in which SOS Children’s Villages International is present, we invite you to contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org or via phone at (+352) 490 430.
