Strengthening Communities Through Transformational Development


Sozo (Greek): to make well, heal, to rescue from danger; to rescue from the edge


A burn, cut, or infections are not easily dealt with in an environment where the availability of doctors and nurses is very limited. In addition to working to provide healthcare solutions for the community, Sozo team members also help educate about health and hygiene and the prevention of disease.


In Kabul there are 81,000 street-working children who must meet the basic needs of their families. Many come from single-parent homes or from homes where their parents are disabled due to warfare. Sozo is working to meet the needs of these children.


One of the largest obstacles to a child receiving an education in Kabul is lack of employment for their parents or caregivers. Sozo has built a training center in Kabul in order to provide a place where adults can come to learn new skills in order to provide for their families with dignity.
