Children's Stories

Videos in this website have been put together by children living in and around SOS Children’s Villages. They’ve captured their thoughts, opinions and ideas to present a new perspective on Africa through their own eyes. The result is this evolving ‘Our Africa’ educational resource.

SOS Children has been working in Algeria since 1980. There is currently one Children’s Village at Al Achour/Draria south of the city of Algiers.

Apart from making videos for this resource, each group of young people has made its own short film (sometimes more than one). Here is what the children came up with:

Success in distress

Unlike her brother, a teenage girl just isn't doing well at school. Sometimes, it just needs a family to help. Watch the video and find out what makes the teenager resolve to try harder.

SOS is always there

In this tale, a good Samaritan finds a young mother in desperate need of someone to help look after her child. He takes her to a Village where he has heard children are cared for. But giving over a child has to be done legally.
