WE BUILD FAMILIES FOR CHILDREN IN NEED We work for children who are orphaned, abandoned or whose families are unable to care for them. We give these children the opportunity to build lasting relationships within a family. Our family approach in the SOS Children's Village is based on four principles: Each child needs a mother, and grows up most naturally with brothers and sisters, in their own house, within a supportive village environment. WE HELP THEM SHAPE THEIR OWN FUTURES We enable children to live according to their own culture and religion, and to be active members of the community. We help children to recognise and express their individual abilities, interests and talents. We ensure that children receive the education and skills training they need to be successful and contributing members of society. WE SHARE IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF THEIR COMMUNITIES We share in community life and respond to the social development needs of society's most vulnerable children and young people. We establish facilities and programmes that aim to strengthen families and prevent the abandonment of children. We join hands with community members to provide education and health care, and respond to emergencies.
YAR Vlaanderen makes a difference in the life of young people between 15 and 21 years old who are struggling in different areas of life. We offer these young people an opportunity to get their lives back on track. Two programs are at the heart of our work: 'YAR Coaching' and 'YAR Housing'. These programs allow young people to experience that they themselves are responsible for their choices. And that making conscious choices is the first step to take their life or housing situation in their own hands. Our participants get a reboot in life, believing that they have a new chance at making something of themselves, no matter their past or circumstances. Personal development, in a sense of taking full ownership of their lives and more particularly their future, is the first foundational pillar of our work. Strengthening the social network is the second pillar of our programs. Creating a network around our young people is crucial in the personal development work we do. In collaboration with professional employees, both programs are made possible by an extensive network of volunteer coaches, partner organizations, companies, socio-cultural organizations and local authorities. Working with volunteers is a fundamental choice and an important element within our community-based work. Working with volunteers is crucial to the success of young people within the programs of YAR Vlaanderen. Young people, often with a long-standing history in youth care, thrive on the fact that their coaches are willing to invest a lot of time and energy into them, without being remunerated. It enhances their trust in our organization, in adults and subsequently, in society at large. YAR Vlaanderen always thinks one step ahead and continually strives for improvement and self-development. We are relentless in our strive to help our youngsters have a genuine fresh start in life as responsible, reasonable, self-reliant and confident young adults.
