SOS Family Strengthening Program (FSP)
FSP Program aims at helping and supporting poor families who raise orphan children or at risk of being abandoned by their families due to many factors, including extreme poverty, illness of the primary care-giver or other social problems. In an effort to address this problem, SOS Children's Villages works with local communities, government authorities, and other organizations to help vulnerable families safeguard their children's well-being.
SOS Children's Villages Syria provides initial assistance to families whose children are at risk of abandonment. Such assistance is in the form of material, educational, health, legal and psycho-social support. Once these basics needs are met, the program provides the families with additional skills and knowledge to help them secure their livelihoods and become self-sufficient. This is achieved through providing counseling services, vocational training, domestic economic skills, or assisting with setting up income-generation projects for the families.
