There are 2.7 million VULNERABLE children in Uganda. Because of war, disease, and deep poverty, over half the population is under the age of 15, making it the second youngest nation in the world.
On May 13th, 2010, Sozo Children was born out of an immediate need to take seventeen children from suffering circumstances in Uganda, Africa. Two missionaries found children neglected and hungry. When they discovered rats biting these children's feet at night in their current living situation, they knew something had to change. Ten days later with the support of the Ugandan government, a new family-style home was created for them including Ugandan mothers and fathers, and a vision to disciple them into the next generation of Christian leaders.
Today, Sozo Children operates multiple children's homes in Uganda, providing care for over 100 children. Sozo Children's mission is to empower vulnerable children to become thriving leaders for Jesus Christ.
