OUR REASON: We operate multiple children's homes in Uganda, providing care for over 120 children. Through a continuum of care provided by a team of Ugandan care-givers, the children of Sozo are loved, nurtured, and equipped with proper nutrition, healthcare, quality education, spiritual development and life skills to impact positive change in their communities and Ugandan society.
We are thrilled you are joining our mission by running in April and we would also like to ask: What’s your reason? Let us know by using the hash tag: #myreason as you help us promote this event on social media leading up to the run. Tag @sozochildren on social media.
