Laos is one of the poorest countries in South East Asia. SOS Children's Villages started working near the capital city of Vientiane in 1993. In the following decades, and due to the continuing hardships faced by the people of Laos, our organisation has expanded and adapted its work. SOS Children's Villages now supports children, young people and families in six locations throughout the country.
At present there are six SOS Children's Villages in Laos, five SOS Youth Facilities, six SOS Kindergartens, five SOS Hermann Gmeiner-Schools, one SOS Vocational Training Centre, three SOS-Social Centres and one SOS-Medical Centre.
