25 years of building families for children without adequate parental care fills us with pride!

Take a moment to think about this: are you proud of yourself? Isn’t being proud of oneself a wonderful feeling? Association SOS Children's Village Croatia, which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, has a good reason to feel proud!

To mark this great and important occasion, Association SOS Children's Village Croatia is launching a campaign called Be Proud of Yourself, centred on the young people who grew up in the care of SOS Children's Village Croatia.

Today, these young people are independent adults – some have started their own families, others are in the final years of their university studies or already pursuing careers they love. Not only are they proud of themselves, they are also proud of the place in which they grew up. Their room in a SOS Children's Village house was a safe childhood space, where they could do everything that other children do in their own rooms – arranging their toys and pictures on the shelves, hanging posters on the walls, tucking themselves into their soft and warm beds every night, playing, studying. For them, SOS Children's Village was a new beginning, a place where they made new friends and where they first started building their own family. Those friendships and family is something that they carry with them always, wherever they go. And their SOS mothers, who looked after them and supported them when they needed it the most, are still the people to whom they turn when they need advice and guidance. Every one of our SOS mothers is proud of the children she raised and of what they achieved in their lives. Through this campaign, SOS Children's Village Croatia wants to convey this sense of pride to all the children who grew up in SOS Children's Villages and SOS Youth Facilities.

The goal of the Be Proud of Yourself Campaign is to raise the awareness of the general public and encourage them to help us achieve our goals as Association by becoming donors and friends of the SOS Children's Village Croatia. By broadcasting TV spots that tell the stories of young people who grew up in the SOS Children's Village Croatia, we want to highlight how proud our Association is of its 25 years of building families for children without parents or adequate parental care. In addition to highlighting the successful work of the Association, the campaign is also designed to put a spotlight on the contributions of our fellow citizens, who help us look after children and young people by donating to our cause.

You too can become a part of our story. Join the campaign and be proud of yourself! To find out more about the campaign, please follow this link: ponosisesobom.sos-dsh.hr
