SOS Childrens Villages chose the best bits of Wikipedia to help you learn. SOS Children's 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. Try to find out how you can help children in other countries on our web site.
