Child Care Champ Awards and Partners Appreciation

We work closely with multi-national corporations, national companies, and small- to medium-sized businesses to build partnerships that leverage the strengths of the corporate sector.

The nature of our partnerships varies with each partner, evolving over time to respond to children’s needs and changes in the business environment.

Whether it’s through strategic programmatic funding, by leveraging a company’s core expertise and networks, or by working with industries to promote child-rights principles in responsible business practices, we partner with the private sector to make a transformational difference for children.

Marketing Guidelines
  • Although SOS Children's Villages South Africa is the beneficiary of donations through its partnerships, we have no ability to sell or distribute products for our partners. While SOS Children's Villages South Africa may publicly acknowledge its corporate partners, we cannot advertise for our partners or promote our partners’ products and services because of our non-profit status. To help raise awareness of SOS Children's Villages South Africa, we ask our partners to publish our URL ( and associated messaging on all promotional materials, press releases, and other partnership outreach materials.
  • SOS Children's Villages South Africa is happy to provide partners with language to use for this purpose. For all marketing programmes, SOS Children's Villages South Africa requests that partners provide consumers with information about our work around the world, along with a way to contact SOS Children's Villages South Africa for further information.
  • SOS Children's Villages South Africa owns the registration for the SOS Children's Villages South Africa name and logo. These are licensed marks, and written permission is required for their use. In order to use these licensed marks, a company must enter into a written contract with SOS Children's Villages South Africa outlining how the company will use the licensed marks.
  • Cause-related Marketing

Without a fully-executed contract, use of the SOS Children's Villages South Africa name and/or logo is strictly prohibited. Sale of Products and Commercial Co-Venture If you wish to contribute a percentage of proceeds from the sale of a product, you must provide a sample to SOS Children’s Villages for review. We accept drawings and/or photos in cases where the product is still in development. In its simplest terms, a commercial co-venture is a relationship where a company promoting a product or service fully discloses to the public that a specified portion of the proceeds will benefit a cause. SOS Children's Villages South Africa  cannot give legal advice to organisations or corporations that conduct programmes or promotions with us; we advise them to seek legal counsel to ensure that they comply with these registration requirements.

House Sponsorship

An SOS Family Home is a loving, family-like environment, for children without parental care. Your CSI contribution towards an SOS Family Home, provides an SOS Family, with up to 8 children, with a qualified carer, the SOS Mother, an education suited to their needs, nutritious meals, access to good healthcare, clean water and minor building maintenance. Many of the children we care for have had difficult life experiences and for those children with specific needs, we provide remedial tuition, trauma counselling and psychological support.


Does your Corporate Social Investment policy aim to contribute both financially and through staff involvement? Do you want to be certain that your investment and involvement will create immense impact? Family Home Sponsorship presents an ideal opportunity for you. Through an annual contribution of R150 000 you will be allocated a specific family in a specific village whom you will sponsor. Your donation will be used to supplement the running costs of the house. This is a mutually rewarding partnership. We would welcome your enquiries. Please email our Corporate Fundraising Team Leader – or


Thanks to the social commitment of many donors and responsible companies, children who have lost parental care, now have the chance to have a successful childhood, the chance to develop their potential, to take up jobs and to become independent and responsible members of our society.
