High school students say goodbye to their SOS families as they enjoy roasted corn on the cob together

The beginning of the new school year in the SOS Children's Village always signals big changes.

Toddlers start kindergarten, the older children become first graders, and high school freshmen turn a new page in their young lives. After completing the elementary school, the kids leave their SOS families and move to SOS Youth Facilities. Although this marks the beginning of their path to self-reliance, they do no have to bear the responsibility for their high school education and future independence on their own.

In Youth Facilities, they are under the 24-hour care of educators, but their SOS mothers remain their biggest source of support, because young people stay in contact with them even after leaving the SOS Village.

For many years now, this major milestone and turning point in the lives of our young people has been celebrated in the SOS Children's Village Lekenik with an event called the Corn Festival. This year, the traditional Corn Festival will take place on September 3, 2015. Our children will celebrate this important day in the life of the Village with a special show and a meal consisting of corn on the cob and hot dogs.
