There are hundreds and thousands of us in the world who call SOS Children’s Villages a home in over 130 countries. For us Hermann Gmeiner is a father and a God send. He gave us a loving home, a nurturing family, and a safe community when we’re were not in a position to be able to afford any of them. His uncompromising and unconditional love is unrivaled by any in the history of humanity. Today, because of his efforts and those who believed and supported his passion many of us have become the living proof of the extraordinary outcomes of his love and compassion. Many around the world have been honored for much less let alone saving lives. It is a stain in our collective human consciousness that he has not received the honor that is overdue. Worse still, some have gone the extraordinary length to stain his name and work. I was not just saved from certain death having been left on the street few days after birth, I was given a loving home and community as a result of our father Hermann. It is still the case for many children around the world and SOS Children’s Villages continues his legacy of love and compassion for all children of the world. 

This is a petition started at the 100th birthday celebration of Dr. Hermann Gmeiner founder and father of the SOS Children’s Villages International, which is also celebrating its 70th year anniversary this year. This petition is inspired by the initiative our dear brother Hailemichael Wassihun. It aims to give his noble and timely initiative and that of the brothers and sisters who are with him on this quest, a global platform to raise awareness and support to reinstate the name of a school to the rightful owner and founder, Hermann Gmeiner. Today, going by the name Higher 23, the school was wrongly misappropriated to the city of Addis Ababa. To add insult to the injury, the city callously and unprovoked took the name, SOS Hermann Gmeiner School, off. While returning the school to the rightful owner may not be practical, restoring the honor to the owner for generously endowing the community, the city and the country with unconditional love and compassion is the least we can expect. We ask all concerned parties to take immediate steps to restoring the honor of Dr. Hermann Gmeiner by reinstating his name. Please support this petition. Thank you!
