One of the founding principles of SOS Malta is that of solidarity. Although in its first years of operation, SOS Malta applied the principle to overseas assistance and humanitarian aid, it eventually sought to promote it on local soil too.
SOS Malta promotes initiatives such as social enterprise and corporate social responsibility aimed at increasing inclusion and empowering the disadvantaged groups. It is engaged in research initiatives as well as in pilot projects.
Recent years have witnessed an increase in both regular and irregular migrants living in Malta – a reality which has lent towards the need for increased intercultural understanding and solidarity. SOS Malta advocates for the introduction and implementation of local measures aimed at the integration and social inclusion of regular migrants in Maltese society. It also believes in the empowerment of migrants in general, as well as in the provision of structured opportunities for those who wish to return back to their country of origin and start afresh.
