About Schools Wikipedia

Wikipedia for Schools is one of SOS Children's many educational projects. SOS Childrens Villages believes education is an important part of a child's life. That's why we ensure they receive nursery care as well as high-quality primary and secondary education. When they leave school, we support the children in our care as they progress to vocational training or higher education. Have you heard about child sponsorship? Visit our web site to find out.
