“BECAUSE OF YOU”
Sozo International seeks to be a catalyst of change, an organization of hope meeting practical and relational needs, all with the goal of empowering Afghans to transform their nation, their people, and their future. Afghanistan is not an easy place to serve, but it is where we are called to be and we have a special passion for bringing hope and transformation to the people who have become our friends. With your care and support, we have been able to do amazing things for many internally displaced people, families, children, and communities.

Strengthening Communities Through Transformational Development
A burn, cut, or infection is not easily dealt with in an environment where access to 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 91,000 street-working children who must help to 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 and create better futures.
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.
Sozo’s Family Outreach Program provides opportunities to develop relationships and assess the needs of students' families. At the core of this program are home visits, where we spend time with families and connect parents to Sozo’s adult learning programs.
