Established in 1985, this Village is situated in Pretoria and is home to 162 children. There are also 3 youth houses on or near the premises, which cater for the older children as they grow towards independence.
An SOS Kindergarten serves the community and Village children as they prepare for "big school", and the SOS Social Centre provides support and training to community families in need.
Mamelodi Village was honoured to host the Ring Award Ceremony in 2004, where SOS-KDI President Helmut Kutin presented gold SOS rings to mothers who have worked more than 10 years for the organisation. We now have mothers and grandmothers with more than 20 years service and still very active in Village life.
The Village also has a strong Family Strengthening Programme which operates through its Social Centre. This programme offers support to the wider community through a community-based partner - support includes emergency food parcels, skills training for caregivers and assistance with establishing income generating activities.
