Abstract: SoS Children’s Villages has been working since 1949 to meet the needs and protect the interests and rights of orphan children. This study is focused on the orphan children of SoS village who are regularly gratifying all the facilities such as home, food, clothing, education, extra- tuitions, vocational training, computer labs, play grounds etc. provided by SoS Children’s Village. SOS children are becoming successful professionals and leading well settled lives as doctors, engineers, software professionals, chefs, nurses and so on. SoS Children’s Villages not just provide the basic necessities like food, clothing and shelter but also ensure that the children are educated, employed and well settled in life by the age of 25. Human development is about equal life chances for all. It involves not only expanding capabilities to broaden people’s present choices to live healthy, productive and safe lives but also ensuring that these choices do not compromise or restrict those available to future generations. This study also reveals the bonding, belongingness of SoS children with their colleague and with the SoS mother who is living 24 hours with them.
