Jobs: Individual Giving Advisor

SOS Children's Villages www.sos-childrensvillages.org is an international non-governmental social development organisation that has been active in the field of children's rights and committed to children's needs and concerns since 1949. In 132 countries our activities focus on children without parental care and children of families in difficult circumstances.
We work on family-based, long-term care of children who can no longer grow up with their biological families. At our SOS Children's Villages children experience reliable relationships and love once again. They grow up in a stable family environment and are supported individually until they become independent young adults.
We also work on family strengthening programmes by supporting disadvantaged families to prevent crisis that can in the worst case scenario lead to place children in out-of-home care. Our family strengthening programmes build on families' and communities' resources, on their ability to organise themselves and on their responsibility for the well-being of the children
