Job Summary

1.0 Background
SOS Children’s Villages in Zimbabwe is a member of SOS Children’s Villages International, the largest children’s rights organization worldwide with a presence in 137 countries. Since 1983, SOS Children’s Villages Zimbabwe has worked with vulnerable children without parental care or those that are at the risk of losing parental care. Through the SOS Care Promise we reinforce our commitment to quality care for every child in our programmes. The Care Promise follows a child-centered approach, which builds on existing initiatives that promote the quality of our work.
Currently SOS Children's Villages in Zimbabwe provides family like-care to over 450 children in its three villages. The organization also supports 8,600 children in need around Zimbabwe through its Family Strengthening Programs, kindergartens and schools, all of which provide children and families in need with vital access to education and other essential services in the three program areas of Mashonaland Central (Shamva and Bindura), Harare Metropolitan(Waterfalls and Chitungwiza) and Bulawayo Metropolitan.

SOS Children’s Villages believes that achieving its mission requires a commitment to a range of approaches, which means directly addressing the immediate needs of vulnerable children and their families as well as working on preventing the root causes of family breakdown. Therefore, the organization prevents family separation in the community through family strengthening programmes that ensure that they are able to care for their children and prevent child abandonment. We are non-governmental and non-denominational; we respect all religions and cultures and we work with local communities and government to ensure the social development of the children of Zimbabwe. All the work we do is made possible through the generous support of sponsors and donors, institutional and corporate partners, and loyal friends worldwide.
