WHAT YOU DO MATTERS
The mission of Sozo Children is to empower vulnerable children to become thriving leaders for Jesus Christ. Through your giving, our child-focused approach to sponsorship allows us to provide resources based on their needs which may include one or more of the following areas of care: education, nutrition, housing, medical care, skills training, life skills courses, discipleship opportunities, and counseling.
Sozo Children values the importance of providing care for our children in accordance with Uganda’s cultural norms. The Ugandan moms and dads employed by Sozo ensure that our children are immersed in their own culture as they grow into impactful leaders of Uganda. The moms and dads accomplish this by encouraging, disciplining, educating, nurturing, and loving each Sozo child.
Sozo Children’s core principle is to raise our children in family units. The benefits of raising a child in a functional family unit are unparalleled. While our children are not raised in traditional home settings, Sozo works to ensure that each child experiences the love and care they deserve. Sozo does not operate as an orphanage and will never institutionalize children in large dormitories. Family units are valued at Sozo and our vision is to reduce our average home size from 20 kids per home to 8 with the completion of Phase One of the Village Project.
One of Sozo’s primary goals is to raise children who will grow into impactful, Christ-centered leaders for Uganda. Each Sozo child is being equipped with practical ways to give back to Ugandan society as leaders in every walk of life. Throughout the year each Sozo child has the opportunity to serve local communities through evangelism, community events, food distribution, and other activities.
Sozo Children employs individuals who are well educated in child welfare, human development, business management, and financial planning. The staff strives to implement the best methods to raise our children in Christ-centered homes. Sozo values professional development, high standards of excellence, and continual education on the best practices to ensure that the highest quality of care is provided for our children.
