Tracking Footprints is an international, long-term project starting in 2001 designed to investigate upon the experiences of people who lived in an SOS Children’s Village facility (SOS adults). A major goal is to learn from SOS adults’ recommendations and points of view in order to further develop the educational work and state the results for external parties. Treating these SOS adults as experts, the study applies a questionnaire focusing on their experiences and individual development during their time in the SOS Children’s Village facilities, major events in their lives, their current situation, what kind of values are important to them.
