With care for the Mountain – young people from the SOS Family Home embark on healthy walks and activities

Organization of walks along mountain routes for the purpose of physical activity and a healthy lifestyle for youngsters in residential care. Action for cleaning and taking care of nature along a selected mountain route. Walks for the purpose of tourism and taking care of the mountain paths are very suitable because of the proximity of Vitosha Mountain and Cherni Vrah. The project aims to bring boys and girls in residential care to the cause of environmental protection. To create a culture and habits for a healthy and active lifestyle. To encourage young people to appreciate and spend more time in nature after the project’s completion.


Our vision:

Every child belongs to a family and grows up with love, respect and security.


Our Mission:

We support families in creating a safe, stable, and caring environment for children. We participate in the development of local communities.
SOS Children’s Villages Bulgaria Association is the first civil rights organization in the country that provides direct care for children at risk. For the first time after the democratic changes, the Association offers an alternative to institutional care for children – care in an SOS family.
We are part of the large international SOS Children’s Villages International family, which cares for nearly 2,500,000 children in 137 countries around the world. We work with children, young people and families to break the cycle of neglect, violence and abandonment at a local level and, ideally, prevent it.
We support families at risk to keep them together and prevent separation. We offer alternative/family care when needed. We help young people on their way to independent life. We stand up for children’s rights.
Throughout our 33-year history in Bulgaria, we have supported:
· 697 children in our SOS Foster families and programs;
· 352 young people on the way to their independence after reaching the age of 18;
· 3,639 children through our Family Strengthening and Separation Prevention programs.
