SOS Children's Villages has been present in India since 1963, their work developed rapidly all over the country and they started their activities in Shillong in 1999. Shillong is located in the north-eastern region of India, in an area renowned for its natural beauty and sometimes called the "Scotland of the East". SOS Children's Villages in Shillong is situated outside the city centre, on a green hill covered with pine trees. The land was donated by the Government of Meghalaya. They continue to work closely with local agencies and community-based organisations in order to identify families who are in need and then provide them with the support they require to improve their lives.
