Besides family houses there is the village director's house,aunt's house (SOS aunts care for SOS children in the absence of SOS mothers) and an administration block and service area.
SOS children's Village Zanzibar offers safe and stable homes to children who are no longer able to live with parents.

The SOS Children’s Village  Zanzibar was opened in 1991 with three family-houses. Currently the SOS Children’s Village Zanzibar consists of eleven houses which gives  home to 110 children. We provide care for children without parental care and those at risk of loosing care of their parents .The children grow up being cared for by SOS mother, along with their SOS brothers and sisters, who are needed to develop family ties and to grow up naturally.
We build families for children in need and we help them shape their own futures. We give children the opportunity to build lasting relationships within a family, we enable them to live according to their own culture and religion, and we help them to recognize and express their individual abilities, interests and talents.
