70th Anniversary of the Opening of the First SOS Children's Village (April 15, 1951)

On April 15, 1951, the first SOS Children's Village opens in the Austrian village of Imst, initially providing 45 children with a new home in five houses. The foundation for the donation-based facility had been laid just two years earlier.

The initiative goes back to Hermann Gmeiner, a medical student at the time. He wanted to take care of the misery of the countless children abandoned or orphaned during the Second World War. Considering the deplorable conditions prevalent in the children's homes during the post-war period, and having been raised as a half-orphan by his older sister himself, it is a matter close to his heart to make it possible for parentless and homeless children to grow up in family-like communities. In the SOS Children's Villages, several children live together with a "surrogate mother" in a common house in a village compound. The SOS Children’s Villages had two role models: 1) the Pestalozzi Children's Village, which was established in Trogen, Switzerland, between 1944 and 1946, primarily for war orphans, and 2) the „Children's Homes“ that were established by deaconess Eva von Tiele-Winckler in the 19th century.

Gmeiner quickly founded other SOS Children’s Villages, first in Austria and later in many other European countries. In 1960 all facilities merged under the umbrella organization SOS Children’s Villages International, with Gmeiner as its president. The first SOS Children's Village outside of Europe was established in South Korea in 1963, soon followed by villages in other parts of Asia, South America and Africa. When founding father Hermann Gmeiner dies in 1986 after almost four decades of selfless dedication to his social work, he leaves behind a legacy of 233 SOS Children's Villages in 85 countries. Today, the organization, which is still financed by donations, looks after more than 400,000 children in 572 SOS Children's Villages in 137 countries.
