September 12, 2016

Sozo Children Accredited by National Financial Accountability Organization

BIRMINGHAM, AL – The ECFA (Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability) announced today the accreditation of Sozo Children of Birmingham, AL.

ECFA accreditation is based on the ECFA Seven Standards of Responsible Stewardship™, including financial accountability, transparency, sound board governance and ethical fundraising.

Sozo Children joins a growing number of Christ-centered churches and ministries across America, supported by over 27 million donors that have earned the right to display the ECFA seal.  When an organization is accredited by ECFA, it demonstrates its willingness to follow the model of biblical accountability.

“We are pleased to accredit a ministry committed to glorify God through saving children in need, building community, and connecting individuals to experience the love of Jesus Christ,” said Dan Busby, president of ECFA.

Founded in 2010, Sozo Children (www.sozochildren.org) uses local Ugandan staff to operate four children's homes in Uganda with near term plans for the construction of a self-sustaining village nearby. Sozo also partners with other faith based organizations to send teams to Haiti and Costa Rica.
