Defending the Interests of the Child

Defending the Interests of the Child

More than 16 years of experience in working with children of all ages enables us to set defined goals, and the defend the rights of children who are either at risk of losing parental care or who are deprived of parental care.

One of our main goals is to share experiences and work to improve Latvian laws and practices in the area.
Our framework for advocacy has been stablished in cooperation with other NGO’s. Since 2011 this merger has culminated in an Alternative Childcare Alliance.

Our Role in Improving the Law

Latvia SOS Children’s Village Association’s specialists were involved in preparing the law. They worked to offer suggestions on improving normative acts and policy planning documents as well as making recommendations to the Ministry of Welfare and cooperating with parliamentary commissions.
