Founded in 1996 as a Member Association of the Federation of SOS Children's Villages International, SOS Children's Villages Kyrgyzstan is working to provide a loving home for every child in need.
SOS Children's Villages wants children to grow up in a caring and nurturing family environment, so they will be able to realize their potential and shape their lives and communities.
The offer for children and families starts with prevention work aiming at keeping families together and strengthening parental as well as economic skills, so children can grow up in a stable and protected environment.
In case it is not possible for children to stay with their family temporarily or for a longer time, SOS Children's Villages offers short-term care or family-based care solutions. The interest of the child is at the centre of a tailor-made approach and solutions are developed individually for each child.

This is the first project Gulf for Good will be working on with SOS Children's Villages Kyrgyzstan
The following is the charity's current needs that we are working towards supporting.
The remote Ananyevo municipality in the Issyk-Kul region of Kyrgyzstan urgently needs a local meeting point to connect community members and boost learning and social activities. Our goal is to raise USD50,000 to build this centre on a plot of land that has been provided by the local government, and running costs to be managed by the municipality.
By building such a facility in this rural area, we will be improving the lives of 165 vulnerable families, 180 children and 12,000 inhabitants of the surrounding villages. The community centre is not just a physical structure, but also provides a space where parents receive training courses to increase their employability and parental skills and help with daily challenges. It will also serve as a venue where children play, learn and do their homework, as well as a hub for cultural and sports events.
Your investment will give the children and families of Ananyevo connection to the world, and a better, brighter future!
