Inside SOS Village




These pictures show part of the SOS village. The environment is really so cool, calm and clean.












I bet you had no idea that the children in the village live a very structured family life, just like you and I and those who grow up in the same family house cannot marry each other because they are siblings.








Imagine such open grounds, beautiful field.








What's more, the children are divided into family houses. Each family house has a mother who stays with them always. She goes home once in a while to see her own family. There is a primary school in the premises, but according to our escorts, for secondary education, they go out to mix up with the world. I bet you didn't know a medical doctor has materialised from there. She works abroad.



This here, is a family house. Sorry no pictures of some of the lovely children we visited. It isn't allowed because people use them to collect donations that never get to SOS.

  2. Well, I cannot say that I am one hundred percent sure, but I should think so, considering what I saw and experienced. This children are given the best of everything and allowed to grow up in family units, becasue the managers of the place believe in the importance of a child growing up first within the family. And, from what I saw, they are closed knit families. As of religion, I wouldn't know. Cannot remember seeing a mosque or a church. They grow up to make their own minds on what to believe or not. For that, they are not influence, becasue at a certain age, they are released from the village to live in apartment houses in the midst of a wider public, so they mix up and have their own opinions.
