SOS Children’s Villages India Embraces Sustainable Future for Vulnerable Children

Organization aligns with UN’s Sustainable Development Goals on World NGO Day

In the spirit of World NGO Day, SOS Children’s Villages India, a leading non-profit dedicated to child care and development, reaffirmed its commitment to building a sustainable future for the children under its care.

The organization actively aligns its initiatives with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), fostering holistic development and resilience among vulnerable communities. These 17 interconnected goals aim to create a more sustainable and equitable world by 2030.

SOS Children’s Villages India stands out for its comprehensive approach, encompassing education, healthcare, child welfare, and community empowerment. Their programs aim to create lasting positive change, uplifting marginalized populations.

The organization and its beneficiaries actively contribute to various facets of sustainable development and climate action, including waste management, organic farming, water conservation, and reducing plastic usage.

Across its locations, SOS Children’s Villages India has implemented solar power, organic waste composting, biogas plants, and rainwater harvesting systems. These measures have led to cost savings, reduced carbon emissions, and improved access to clean water.

“We are committed to empowering communities and ensuring no child is left behind,” said Sumanta Kar, CEO of SOS Children’s Villages India. “Collaboration with governments, society, and the private sector can significantly amplify our impact and accelerate progress towards the SDGs. We aspire to empower the children under our care to be future changemakers, leaving a positive impact on their world.”

SOS Children’s Villages India’s programs, including Family Strengthening, Education & Youth Skilling, and Kinship Care, directly contribute to achieving five SDGs: No Poverty, Quality Education, Decent Work and Economic Growth, Reduced Inequalities, and Peace, Justice, and Strong Institutions.
