Are you a Superhero?

Children with an education hold the power to change the world, and you hold the power to give them that - you don’t even have to wear a cape to make a difference in the lives of children.

For almost 35 years, SOS Children’s Villages have been helping orphaned and abandoned children realise their dreams, by providing them with the means to complete their education, while providing a loving, well-rounded family environment to live in. *Thembi is one of these children. She is 11 years old, and a caring, responsible and respectful child. She is known for the fact that she doesn’t like to see other children crying or in pain. She dreams of becoming a psychologist one day, so that she can help other people to be happy.

Your donation to SOS Children’s Villages could start changing the world right now, by helping *Thembi to get the education she’ll need to also become a respected psychologist one day.

SOS Children’s Villages supports many other children, like *Thembi, who have high hopes and dreams for their futures. Like *Catherine, who wants to be a lawyer. *Bongani, who wants to be an engineer when he grows up. *Khutso dreams of becoming a doctor, and *Thabang wants to make an impact on the world be becoming an artist.

These are five children with hugely different dreams for the future, and SOS Children's Villages can only make their dreams come true through education.

With the help and donations of superheroes like you, SOS Children's Villages could start changing the world for these children right now, by helping them to get the education they’ll need to become the educated future of South Africa one day.
