Who we are

our history

Sozo Children was founded on May 13, 2010, out of an urgent need to care for neglected children in Uganda. When two missionaries discovered a group of children in dire need of care—they did the only thing they knew to do. In just ten days, and with the local Ugandan Government's help, a new home was started initially providing seventeen children a roof over their heads, clean clothes, and hope for the future.

Our Values

As a mission-based ministry, we serve God by serving others. By meeting the needs of children once trapped in generational poverty, we equip them mentally, physically, and spiritually to become strong leaders for Christ who will transform their communities for the next generation.




We believe every child entrusted to us is uniquely created by God and deserves an opportunity to thrive. Equipped with the best education, healthcare, and nutrition, our children are given the tools they need to thrive in life, creating a better future for the communities they will serve.




Scripture tells us there is no greater joy than children who walk in truth. We believe communities can only experience real transformation when Christ is at the center of the home.




We work in partnership with local leaders in the communities we serve to empower those we serve to be true leaders for Jesus. 

THE PURPOSE behind sozo

“Sozo” is a Greek word that means to save, keep safe, and rescue from harm. Sozo Children provides at-risk children with proper nutrition, healthcare, quality education, spiritual development, and life skills guided by a team of Ugandan caregivers to build strong leaders for Christ who will have a positive impact on the next generation of Ugandan society.
