Psychological support and education
Greece’s first-ever SOS Children’s Village is located in Vari, not even 12 kilometres away from the Acropolis. Here, children from the region can find a loving and caring home.
In order to overcome behavioural and development problems, educators and psychologists offer individual and group counselling tailored to the children’s individual needs. In addition, there are weekly stress-management sessions. Our sponsored programme helps the children fulfil their potential and allows them to grow into strong personalities within their SOS families.
Due to the financial crisis, many families were no longer able to adequately care for their children. Since 2015, an additional focus lies on emergency relief measures for refugee children arriving in Greece.
