In this video clip posted November 8, 2010, actress Maggie Gyllenhaal and her husband Peter Sarsgaard take action in Alibaug, India.  By opening an SOS Children’s Village, Maggie and Peter are helping children who have no parents or who can’t live with their parents anymore. According to Look to the Stars, SOS Children’s Village is a non-governmental and non-denominational social development organisation that provides family-based care to these children.

Maggie and Peter are global ambassadors for SOS Children’s Village and its parter Esprit (the lifestyle brand).  I’m very proud that this dynamic duo takes their job seriously as global ambassadors. It’s one thing to fight for a cause. It’s another thing to go out to India to support the cause and help in any way you can.
“Protecting children’s rights is a universal responsibility that requires global commitment from us all,” said Gyllenhaal. “It’s a privilege for Peter and I to join hands with Esprit and promote the remarkable work of SOS Children’s Villages, which for the past sixty years has continued to give children worldwide love, security, and the nurturing environment that only a family can provide.”

I couldn’t agree more.
