Children and young people make up approximately 47 % of Colombia's population. SOS Children’s Villages Colombia operates in 10 locations across the country, supportingapproximately 11.500 children, youth and families in need.

"Today, youth unemployment is a global challenge. But children and youth who have grown up in alternative care or in a SOS Children's Village face a much bigger challenge. They haven't had the chance to learn naturally from their parents to get an idea how the working life looks like. These young people need special support.”

Petra Horn, CEO of SOS Children’s Villages
