SOS Children’s Village in Calbayog is the third Children’s Village built in the Philippines. Its inception was a product of the community’s collective action which enabled its establishment in 1972. It was the organization’s building block and inspiration to continuously fulfill its care promise to 54 children and 50 young boys and girls in 10 family houses and 2 youth facilities through its Family-Like Care Programme.
The organization also extends its efforts into the communities through the Family Strengthening Programme. This provides educational and medical assistance to 432 children and young people. The Entrepreneurship and Employability Training Programme, on the other hand, serves five different nationally certified technical-vocational courses to 228 enrolees.
In 2012, SOS Children’s Village Calbayog received the “PaNata Ko Sa Bayan” Award and hailed as the best non-government organization in the country by the Department of Social Welfare and Development.
