Countries we are visiting in Europe:

The first SOS Children’s Village was founded by Hermann Gmeiner in Tyrol, Austria, in 1949. As a child welfare worker, Gmeiner saw how children orphaned as a result of World War II suffered. He was committed to helping them by building loving families and supportive communities.

Today, there are SOS Children's Villages in 35 European countries.  Please click on the links below for more information about the various villages that we will be visiting as we tour around Europe.
