The SOS Children's Village Jamshoro has been operational since April 2012. It is constructed on five acres of land, which was donated by the University of Sindh.
The city of Jamshoro is the capital of the Jamshoro District. It is located on the bank of the Indus River, approximately 18km north-west of Hyderabad and 150km north-east of Karachi.
Besides being a historical and picturesque site, the city is home to many highly-educated and affluent people. Many universities can be found here, including one of Pakistan's best engineering universities, Mehran University of Engineering, and its second oldest university, Pakistan University of Sindh. These universities produce a good number of engineers, doctors, IT professionals, journalists and other professionals every year.
SOS Children’s Village Jamshoro is made up of 15 family homes, each having the capacity for up to 10 children at any one time. Other facilities on site include a computer lab, two separate activity rooms for boys and girls, a library, a playground and a mosque.
Currently there are 51 children living in the Village (Feb 2017) and they are all well-settled in the Village environment. They are studying in Syed Pannah Ali Shah Model School in Jamshoro (boys only till Class 5), except for seven boys who are now in Rise up Grammar School.
A programme called ‘Jugnoo’ for imparting accelerated education is in place for older children to prepare them for schooling in the first few years. Now, home tuition is given to new arrivals, and evening academic support to others to help cope with the demands of the school curriculum. Extra-curricular learning and entertainment is an important part of the routine, which is very popular with the children.
