The "How" Matters

How someone cares for a child matters because it is the determining factor of that child's future. Let us explain to you the prayerfully crafted vision of Sozo Children's Child Development Program.

Cultural Importance

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. 

Cultivating Leaders

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. The fruit that will grow from investments made now will impact Uganda, and possibly the world, for the glory of God.

Family Units

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.

Continual Education

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.
