Children’s villages sos fraud or not
CHILDREN’S VILLAGE – SOS is a special, as close as possible to the family, long-term model of raising orphaned children, successfully existing in 132 countries of the world for more than 60 years.
Here they try to return to the child what fate has taken from him, what is necessary for his full physical and spiritual development: mother, brothers and sisters, security, warmth of the hearth and confidence in the future.
Unlike orphanages, in Children’s Villages – SOS never separate siblings, and children who have reached the age of 15-16 are not left to their own devices, but go to a structure unique for Russia – Youth Houses – SOS, where they are helped to get a profession, find a job and solve housing problems.
The activities of the Sos Children’s Village are based on 4 principles formulated by the great Austrian humanist Hermann Gmeiner, the founder of the SOS Children’s Villages:
1. Mother of the Children’s Village – SOS is a vocation, a way of life and a professional job. A woman who has chosen the most feminine profession lives with her children, brings them up, and runs the household, like all other mothers in the world.
2. Every child has brothers and sisters in the SOS Children’s Village. 6-8 children of different ages live and are brought up in SOS-family. Having matured, they leave the village, but do not sever ties with their home.
3. Home is one of the most precious places in the life of each of us. And the child who constantly feels the warmth and care of the family, knows what family traditions and chores are, can truly be happy.
4. Children’s Village-SOS – is 12-14 family houses and at the same time – a bridge to the outside world, ensuring a reliable adaptation of children in society. The village is not isolated from the outside world. Children go to ordinary schools, kindergartens, clubs and sports clubs, music schools, and when they are sick, they visit the local doctor together with the SOS mother. Their communication with peers is not limited. The Children’s Village is open to friends and guests.
Children are admitted to the Children’s Village in cases where it is impossible for them to return to their family of origin. However, in many cases, it is possible to resolve the crisis situation in the family by providing preventive assistance. The support provided to families is an activity in the best interests of the child. Therefore, around SOS villages around the world, which are a kind of core of social projects, there are programs and institutions that support low-income families, single mothers and other socially unprotected categories of citizens.
We should talk about the SOS children’s village in Vologda. This material has been on our shelf for a long time, the first time mothers from it came to us back in July. We visited them in August. But, somehow everything was postponed and postponed. Either I left for the elections in Moscow for two weeks, or we waited for a response from the director of the Village-SOS, who promised us more detailed information on the documents. But unfortunately they didn’t wait. Meanwhile, the situation causes concern, since they came up with a reorganization in the Village. And this news about the dead boy makes me write something. Pay attention to the problem.
Since we can’t imagine the director’s opinion right now, it seems that there was a dialogue, there is no result, so I’ll tell you about mine. So I’ll start, and then we’ll see and continue.
So, we have an interesting project in our country to transfer children from orphanages to families.
The project is wonderful in my opinion. So we ourselves went out and looked at how the kids live, in what conditions. Families bring up 3-5 children each, there is a mother, there is also an “aunt”, an assistant to the mother. Children go to kindergarten and school, that is, in general, they live a normal life. Very different from an orphanage.
Separate cottages for one or two families.
General administration building
The territory near the village is common, the houses are not separated from each other
There are places for sports
There are also sponsors
that the principle of purely Russian partnership was used for the first time in the Vologda village. In this connection, the problems of financing are more acute than in Russia as a whole.
But the houses are still comfortable and comfortable
Equipped with everything necessary for both children and parents
If something is missing, then sponsors and patrons gradually buy necessary
So what, the reader will ask, do you want? Like live and be happy.
Ah, not everything is calm in the Danish kingdom. Next, I will express my opinion on the current situation.
There was an idea to change the format of the village, to transfer all children to foster families. That is, now, “mothers” are essentially educators, and “aunts” are assistants to the educator. At the expense of the Children’s Village, they are paid a salary, and accordingly they have all social guarantees. In principle, this is such a mixture of family and orphanage.
But, we all know that the country has adopted the so-called “Dima Yakovlev Law” or “anti-Magnit Law”, whichever is more convenient for you, that’s not the point. The bottom line is that under this law, adoption in foreign families was significantly limited in the country. While promising that we have our own potential. We will not discuss here what the deputies and the President have done. The point now is that they now need to get out of the situation. And what helps to put a good face on a bad game? The correct answer is statistics!
After all, if summing up the results of 2013, it turns out that the adoption of children has dropped sharply, then the result of the “anti-Magnit law” will be on the face, and far from being in favor of the current government. What did these people come up with to improve the statistics? In our case, they came up with the idea to transfer the format of the Children’s Village-SOS from mixed to purely foster. And what, just imagine what glorious reports you can write: in 2013, the number of foster families in Russia increased dramatically. Despite the forecasts of the White Ribbons, the situation with the “Dima Yakovlev law” caused a big upsurge among Russians.
Of course, I’m exaggerating, but something like this will happen. The authorities will not be able to admit their mistakes, well, the current one is not capable of this.
In general, in the Vologda Children’s Village-SOS, all mothers were offered to “voluntarily” place their children in a foster family. Everything would be fine, in principle, the children are already like family, but that’s just a snag. After all, if earlier there was an employment contract with the Village, and the houses belonging to it were provided by definition. Now mothers were offered to conclude a lease and a service agreement. Just imagine, they tell you that you are obliged to take three to five children to a foster family, while you have no guarantees for living. What if they kick you out of the cottage tomorrow?! Of course, the leadership promises that everything will be fine. But only to my request to show this contract, I have been waiting for an answer for a month and a half. As well as on the service agreement and the conditions for further cooperation between the foster family and the village administration. Although it would seem that it is easier than giving an opportunity to assess the legal side of the issue. After all, this is what scares expectant mothers. Uncertainty!
At the same time, the administration takes an interesting position on the issue of refusal of “mothers” to go to a foster family.
So I’m just asking: What if they refuse?
They answer me: Then we will consider the issue of terminating the contract with them and will look for other mothers
Continue: So you will hire other “moms” after breaking the connection with the children that has developed over several years? To hire new ones under the current conditions of the SOS Village and immediately start convincing them that they should take the children into a foster family? And where is the concern for children? Where thoughts about their psychological state?
Answer: You know, a decision has already been made at the very top, we receive instructions from both the Russian SOS Village and the Department of Education.
Yes-ah-ah-ah, I will not reproduce non-printed words that arise after such a dialogue. Here it is immediately clear that the adults simply started their non-childish games around the village and the children, and the latter do not bother them much.
So what to do? And this is the question I would like to ask myself. But I think that the most important thing should be children, their well-being and peace of mind. They have already suffered enough in this life, because they all ended up in the Village from orphanages or dysfunctional families. Let the adults agree among themselves.
But I have a simple opinion. Is it necessary to destroy what is already working well? What has already proven its worth? Want to play around with reorganizations and reforms? Play elsewhere. Do not arrange games with children and their fates!
to be continued…
– Do you think they are scammers or not?
There are no upsides to cheating. You need to include your head. Self-post this camp with gifts and things for children.
cheating in a brazen way
Children’s Villages I want to start a little with a preface, so that it is clear what it is and where it takes its roots from. The organization of children’s villages was founded immediately after the Second World War in Austria, for those children who were left without parents and lost them during this terrible war. Founder Hermann Gmeiner, he planned 3 children’s villages in Austria and he managed to build them. Today, there are 134 countries where these children’s camps exist, and all over the world there are 550 villages with the status of SOS and more than 1,500 thousand different programs for children who are left in a difficult life situation. It is good that there are such programs and such people who are engaged in this activity, I bow to them for this difficult work.
Russia also has children’s villages, they appeared many times later than in Austria, as far back as 1994. In the city of Moscow there is their office and for all necessary questions and assistance, you can contact them. The first permanent village in Russia appeared in Tomilino in 1996, and today there are only 6 villages in Russia, a drop of the ocean, as they say, compared to the whole world. There are children’s villages in Belarus, Kazakhstan, Ukraine.
Yes, in Russia, with children’s villages, a very complex and dubious question arises whether all the money collected from charity goes to accounts for use with children in our country in villages.
This is certainly worth looking into.
I just read this information from a woman who faced a situation in which a volunteer from the Sos Children’s Village came to her and offered to transfer n the amount of money from her salary to the fund of the Sos Children’s Village and also all her employees at work, a woman I doubted very much, since children are still very serious and responsible.
A volunteer from this organization called Children’s Village Foundation insisted and waited for an answer. Of course, the woman doubted whether the swindler was standing with such wishes about making a profit by fraudulent means. Of course, you need to be extremely careful on what basis you can give your honestly earned money and it is not clear to whom to transfer it to the account and where will there be a guarantee that they will get to the village for children, for their food, clothes, shoes, leisure, games, entertainment, education, communal needs and more. So there can be a lot of lines in this organization of Russian villages with children and money is really needed. But there will always be cunning and greedy people who want to use their logic and deceive really honest and benevolent people who live in good conscience and want to always help the children from the camp.
My personal opinion on this whole matter, if you want to help these villages in Russia, then you need to adhere to the following logical rules and common sense, namely: Good luck to everyone and don’t forget to help the children.

SOS Children’s Villages
) is the largest international charitable organization supporting orphans, children left without parental care, and children who are at risk of losing their families. The abbreviation SOS in the name of the organization is an abbreviation of the phrase “social support” (English social support
), which also corresponds to the international SOS distress signal and symbolizes the urgent need of the most vulnerable members of society, children, for help and protection.
SOS children’s villages – an alternative to orphanages
Children’s Village-SOS is a unique, as close as possible to the family, long-term form of education of orphans and children left without parental care. This model has been successfully operating for 60 years in 132 countries around the world.
Unlike most state-run orphanages, which are designed primarily to solve the problem of “maintenance” of orphans, SOS Children’s Villages create conditions for a happy childhood, comfortable growing up and effective social adaptation of children who cannot be returned to their families possible.
Children’s Village-SOS is 11-15 houses united in a mini-community, in each of which 6-8 children of different ages live together with an SOS-mother. As in a normal family, SOS-mother takes care of and educates children and teaches them everything that she knows herself and that they will need in independent adulthood: from cooking and cleaning around the house to budgeting and shopping. It seems self-evident – if you do not know that most of the graduates of state orphanages have no idea about life, the rules of behavior in society and money. In orphanages, they live “with everything ready,” and they enter adult life completely unprepared.
Children from SOS Children’s Villages go to ordinary kindergartens and study at ordinary schools, which contributes to their adaptation to society at an early stage.
Another important difference between SOS Children’s Villages and orphanages is attention to the child’s biological family. First, siblings are never separated, as is often the case when orphans of different ages are placed in orphanages. Secondly, children’s connections with the biological family are maintained: relatives can visit them in the SOS Children’s Village and spend time with them.
The first SOS Children’s Village opened in 1949 in the city of Imst (Austria) for children who lost their parents during World War II. The founder of the organization Hermann Gmeiner (1919-1986) said that if he managed to build at least 3 SOS Children’s Villages in Austria, his life would not be lived in vain. Today, in 133 countries on all continents, there are more than 500 SOS Children’s Villages and another 1,500 various programs and projects to help children in difficult life situations, including humanitarian disasters, strengthen families and prevent social orphanhood.
The initiator of the creation of this institution in Russia is Elena Sergeevna Bruskova. In the 1970s, while a correspondent for Komsomolskaya Pravda, she ended up in Austria. It was there that she first visited the so-called children’s village. She was immediately struck by the striking contrast between the happy faces of children who live in a “family” consisting of a mother, several aunts and dozens of brothers and sisters of different ages, and Russian orphans who leave the orphanage with a clear attitude that man is a wolf to man. First, she wrote two books about the pedagogical phenomenon of children’s villages she saw, then she made a series of television programs. Later, the first like-minded person appeared, a simple village teacher [ who?
. In the future, all the funds and documents for the construction of the first village were quickly collected. There was no refusal from any official.
Corridor system turns ordinary orphanages into barracks, for this reason the village consists of several cottages. One family lives in each such house – “mother”
and 6-8 orphans. Also, for each of the two houses there are “aunt”
– nanny, mother’s assistant.
To become a “mother” of a children’s village, that is, to take responsibility for several children living in one of these institutions, special orientation courses are taken, which last 7 months. First, a woman is offered to work as an aunt. Women are paid for their work in caring for children and have days off. Mom and aunt replace each other on weekends and during holidays.
So that the houses do not look the same and monotonous, the mother of each house receives money in her hands and buys everything for the house herself. This is her house, she equips it.
Some SOS Children’s Villages offer vacations for tourists to raise funds. One such village is located in the picturesque region of Caldonazzo in Northern Italy.
SOS Children’s Village – charitable organization; exists solely at the expense of sponsors, however, it accepts not only monetary donations, but also clothing (children’s furniture, household appliances, etc.).
In 2011 the Children’s Village-SOS Tomilino will be 15 years old. During this time, 62 pupils came out of here into adulthood. 17 of them already have their own families, many of them are raising their kids. Five of them were educated in higher educational institutions of Moscow, 54 graduates received special vocational education. All of them are happy to return to their family homes with their mother, brothers and sisters. To the question: “What is the Children’s Village-SOS Tomilino for you?”, they answer: “Native home and family. ”
Six “Children’s Villages – SOS” have already been created in Russia: in Tomilino (near Moscow), in Lavrovo (Oryol region) (in the Orlovsky district of the Oryol region), in Pushkin (near St. Petersburg), in Kandalaksha (Murmansk region) , in Pskov. In Vologda, the SOS children’s village opened on May 22, 2012. .
The honorary role of the ambassador of the Pushkin village SOS is performed by Andrey Arshavin. .
The Russian Committee “Children’s Villages – SOS” is a member of the international charitable organization SOS Kinderdorf International, which provides assistance to children in 132 countries around the world.
There are two “Children’s Villages – SOS” in Belarus, the first of which was established back in 1995.
On a fundraising trip for the SOS organization, June 30 – July 1, 2010, a Swiss delegation, which included figure skater Stephane Lambiel, visited the children’s village in Bến Tre. The visit of the two-time world champion caused a lot of emotions among the children. He played with them and showed various elements of figure skating.

I want to devote my today’s review to a new type of fraud under the guise of charity – volunteer organizations “Children’s Villages-SOS”.
The scheme of this wiring is quite simple. In the city center, right on the street or in a shopping complex, a pretty volunteer girl approaches you, dressed from head to toe in the uniform of some charity organization. You are told pitifully about another sick child and about 100,000 millions for his treatment in clinics in Israel or Germany.
Everything is as usual, but: these volunteers will not take any money from you. But instead, they will ask you for … all the details of your bank card. Donate if you want, donate if you don’t. But we would like to understand how effectively we work, so we will simply keep track of everyone who has learned about our project and thus decided to support it. And in order not to waste your time, we will not record all the data. We will simply take a picture of your card on our tablet computer. On both sides, along with all codes. Or they offer to make a charitable donation in the form of a small auto payment, which will be deducted from your card every month.
Of course, experienced users of bank cards will never fall for such a stupid scam. But the elderly are very easy prey for such imaginary volunteers.
Even in traffic jams, volunteers love to make a living by knocking on every car and asking for money. In the 90s, this is how ordinary beggars hunted, and now this is such an imaginary charity. They also like to sell some penny trifle (such as a ball or a flag) for fabulous money. who also go to charity. Familiar students moonlighted as volunteer promoters, they were paid hourly. But even they never knew where the money was going. Since the organization does not have any office, they agreed on work by phone or the Internet, met with the head on the street. And they were paid a salary as a percentage of the collected money. And the rest of the money just went to some stranger’s uncle’s pocket. And I strongly doubt that with this money he donated at least a ruble to sick children.
I myself encountered these comrades. We also had people walking around our office center (until the guards kicked them out) and pretending to be employees of the organization “Children’s Villages-SOS” and extorting money. But in fact, these people are not employees of this charitable organization. When I told them that we ourselves would transfer the money to the details of the “Children’s Villages-SOS” indicated on their official website, they told me that there would be a tax and the amount would decrease. So tell us your credit card number or give us some cash. We then called the “Children’s Villages-SOS” they said that they do not have such volunteer pickers. I was just in shock, how can you profit from someone else’s misfortune.
Although I will make a reservation that the described technology is not always a fraud. Perhaps we are talking about the so-called “direct dialogue” – that is, a method of attracting supporters through face-to-face communication. This technology has been used by charities around the world for decades. In our country, it was tested by WWF and SOS Children’s Villages. Convinced of the effectiveness of the method, Children’s Villages launched a full-fledged program, which is already being implemented in eight cities. Their list and details of the organization can be found on their official website. But be careful, watch where you donate your money, so as not to fall for the bait of scammers.
