SOS Children’s Villages is a non-governmental, non-denominational organization that works with communities, partners, and states to protect the rights of children globally.
Their vision is to build a world where “every child belongs to a family and grows up with love, respect, and security.” Through innovation, partnerships, and by providing the best possible care, the NGO aims to ensure that no child is forced to grow up alone. They want to reach this goal by 2030.
But as a global organization operating in over 136 different countries via 118 national associations, they’ve had trouble keeping their various fundraising departments on the same page.
Unsurprisingly, aligning international programs and ensuring each project is efficiently contributing to the organization’s long-term goals is no easy feat without a structured, shared innovation strategy in place. Which is why SOS Children’s Villages decided to collaborate with Board of Innovation.
Together, we developed a common innovation framework and methodology for all their fundraising departments. The goal of this blueprint is to ensure each association works on the right projects for their business goals without duplicating efforts.
