“Sozo” is a Greek word that means to save, to keep safe, and to rescue from harm. On May 13th, 2010, Sozo Children began out of an immediate need to take seventeen vulnerable children from suffering circumstances in Uganda, Africa. The vision of Sozo Children is to see All Children Thriving, All Communities Transformed. The mission is to empower vulnerable children to become thriving leaders for Jesus Christ. Through a continuum of care provided by a team of Ugandan care-givers, over 120 children of Sozo are loved, nurtured, and equipped with proper nutrition, healthcare, quality education, spiritual development and life skills to impact positive change in their communities and Ugandan society. Sozo Children’s model includes a three-tiered continuum of care to save, strengthen and sustain for permanent transformation. Through The Village Project, Sozo Children is developing 28 acres of land to include three wells for access to clean water, a place of worship, and more.

Sozo Children’s sponsorship program exists to connect individuals with vulnerable children to experience the love of Christ and fulfill their potential. Sponsorships provide for basic needs of medical care and education as well as personal development, essential life skills and spiritual growth. The desired outcome is for all Sozo Children to become thriving leaders for Christ in Uganda.
Since 2010, Sozo Children has built meaningful relationships with vulnerable communities to share the love of Christ and break the cycle of poverty. Sozo seeks to encourage the talents and abilities already present in community families through sustainable initiatives facilitated by local Ugandan leaders. Community Partners provide support for families in the most impoverished areas of Uganda who are desperate for the opportunity for transformation and the life-giving hope of Jesus Christ.
The Village Project, a capital project to develop the campus of Sozo Children, consists of three phases to provide 30 family-based homes for 300 children, a worship facility, a primary and secondary school, a medical clinic, and water wells for the community. The Village Project allows supporters to take an active role in the work of God to fulfill the vision of Sozo Children to see All Children Thriving, All Communities Transformed.
