In Malawi, Adoption is Not Enough
Date:4/1/2009

in the south. Over 400 children are being raised in 42 family homes within the SOS Malawi Villages. Community members also greatly benefit from SOS programs that include kindergartens, primary schools, vocational training centers, and medical facilities.

The United Nations cites a 26% completion rate for primary school for all children in Malawi, while the completion rate for girls is just 16%. At the Blantyre Village, the SOS kindergarten is providing the building blocks of education for 90 children, while 320 children are benefiting from the primary school. The SOS schools help to alleviate the over-crowding of local Malawian schools and make it possible for children who reside in the SOS Village and those who live close-by to receive a quality education. This same story is played out at each SOS Village in Malawi and at SOS Children's Villages around the world.
