Saving Orphans through Healthcare and Outreach (SOHO) improves the lives of orphans and vulnerable children of child-headed households in communities devastated by HIV/AIDS through programs that work to heal, educate, feed, empower and nurture.

What is a
child-headed household?

A child-headed household is one where an underage child has the adult responsibility of running a household. Some child heads of household are as young as nine years old. Children of child-headed households may be orphans, or abandoned. Learn more.

The Hope Seekers

In just five years, SOHO’s initiatives to aid child-headed households have given new hope to numerous children. Yet these children, and thousands more, are still overwhelmed by the struggle for survival. With their childhoods stripped away, and their lives hanging in the balance — they have no vision, no voice, and no sense of self-value. Yet, we call them ‘Hope Seekers.’

We will tell the stories of the children, and in doing so, give them a voice. Until they find their voice, we will lend them ours. Learn more or purchase the book now.
