Berlin-Moabit

SOS Children's Villages started working in Germany in the mid-1950s, after the foundation of "SOS-Kinderdorf e.V." in Munich. The SOS Children's Villages concept aroused great interest in Germany; the number of members and friends rapidly increased, and in subsequent years our organisation was able to expand its support to reach children, young people and families in nearly 40 locations around the country.

The SOS Children's Village Berlin-Moabit is located in the centre of Germany's capital of Berlin, and was officially opened in October 2005. Representing a further development of the SOS Children's Village model, the village comprises two rented apartments and offers accommodation to about twelve children. The children are encouraged to join in a number of activities, such as music lessons, private tuition, and also therapeutic programmes.

The SOS Children's Village Berlin-Moabit further includes an SOS Social Centre used as a day care centre and meeting point for families, offering family education, special projects for children and - in co-operation with schools - educational and family counselling, and projects for mothers and children.
