Social Responsibility

SOS Children’s Villages build families for orphaned and abandoned children. Eight to ten children are cared for in small family-type homes, the SOS families, and are raised like brothers and sisters.

The head of the family is the SOS Mother, who provides the children with the affection and security they need for their sound development. This is supported by the Village-based Child and Youth Development team.

WG Dixon (Pty) Ltd is a sponsor of this initiative.

There are currently more than 900 children living permanently in the SOS Children’s Villages in Pretoria, Johannesburg, Pietermaritzburg, Mthatha, Port Elizabeth, Cape Town, Nelspruit and Rustenburg.
