SOS CV KE Staff Training Consultancy in Kenya

SOS CV KE Staff Training Consultancy in Kenya


  • SOS Children’s Villages Kenya (SOS CV KE) is a member of SOS – Kinderdorf International, the largest private child welfare organization in the world.

  • SOS CV KE implements programmes focusing on Alternative Family Care of children with inadequate parental care, education, health, youth empowerment, Family Strengthening and Advocacy.

  • The organization has a presence in 7 of the country’s 47 counties; these are Nairobi, Mombasa, Uasin Gishu, Meru, Kisumu, Busia and Homa Bay.

  • The frequency and severity of natural and man-made emergencies has increased over the last several decades as a result of environmental degradation and the adverse impact of climate change, conflicts and other factors.

  • Developing countries like Kenya are characterized by rapid population growth and urbanization; deforestation and human-wildlife conflicts; poor physical infrastructure and weak social systems.

  • This growing complexity exacerbates the effects of disasters on the lives, rights and welfare of children and youth targeted by the organization; the livelihoods of their families and the wider target communities. It also reduces the resilience of families and communities while increasing the vulnerability of entire populations.

  • The UN Guidelines for the Alternative Care of Children (UNGAC, 2009) promote the rights of children at risk of losing parental care and of children in alternative care settings. The Guidelines strongly emphasize the importance of preserving and supporting family care, and they offer guidance to prevent family separation and ensure adequate care in all circumstances.

  • It is essential that all duty bearers live up to their responsibilities as laid out in the UN Guidelines for the Alternative Care of Children and incorporate them into national policy and practice.
