Mission, Vision and Values
Sozo is a Greek term meaning “to make well, to heal, to rescue from danger".
Sozo International’s mission is to partner with at-risk Afghan communities to create a sustainable future and transformed lives through healthcare, education, and economic initiatives. We seek to do this in a holistic manner that considers physical, relational, and spiritual components. We intend to learn, partner, and provide resources to this end.
Our vision is to be a catalyst of hope and change in some of the most vulnerable and forgotten communities in the world.
Our values include:
Building relationships that demonstrate hospitality, authenticity, and respect of one another
Entering into partnerships that serve Sozo’s mission and vision and benefit Afghan communities
Serving others in a relational context by setting positive examples and going the extra mile
Equipping and encouraging national leadership while Western presence serves behind the scenes
Relying on prayer to guide us as we steward what has been entrusted to us
Pioneering in our area of work through innovation, creativity, and intentional risk-taking, assured that achieving our vision is worth the risk
