SOS Villaggi dei bambini is a private, apolitical and nondenominational international organization.
Its focus is on children: their needs, their rights, and their family. Its activity starts from the principle that a healthy development best occurs in a warm and welcoming family environment. Thanks to a network of public institutions and local organisations, it takes care of children at risk of losing parental care, supporting and empowering families in a tight spot, and provides family-care services to children and young people left without adequate support.
Servizio Missionario Giovani – founded in 1964, this brain-child of Ernesto Olivero has its origins in the common dream of defeating hunger through works of justice and development activities, living and experience of solidarity with the poor, and giving special attention to young people, so to make a joint effort to find ways to bring peace to the world.
