Sponsoring Villages and Children with SOS Children’s Villages

Peter Kuperman

Hatch Canada founder and CEO Peter Kuperman considers himself to be a secular humanist. Maintaining a strong passion for helping others, he is extremely involved in making the world a better place. Not only do Peter Kuperman and his wife sponsor a refugee family from Syria, they also support such organizations as SOS Children’s Villages.

SOS Children’s Villages was established in 1949 by Hermann Gmeiner with the goal of providing children with a supportive and stable community. To accomplish its goal, the organization relies on the support of its donors, volunteers, and sponsors. SOS sponsors provide direct support to children who have been abandoned or orphaned. As thanks for their support, sponsors receive a welcome packet with information about the individual or village they are supporting, along with progress reports, birthday notifications, and holiday greetings.

Sponsors can either support individual children or sponsor an entire village. Child sponsors pay either $35 a month or $420 a year to support a child of their preferred gender in an area of their choice. Thanks to their donations, sponsored children are given a supportive home and raised by a trained SOS mother. They are also given access to education, medical care, and other necessities. Meanwhile, village sponsors pay the same amount, but their donations go toward supporting an existing SOS Village. This includes covering the cost of community play areas, outreach programs, and grounds maintenance.
