Sodac is an charitable small organization which was registered with the aim of helping other people
Our vision is to bring hope to people in Africa. This hope may come in the form of food to eat, safe water to drink, help for families infected and affected by HIV/AIDS or by empowering people to set up small businesses which will enable them to change their futures.
Hope Africa has a clear mandate to bring hope and empower people in Africa and put an end to systemic poverty.
In many poor communities, parents have little to leave their children except, perhaps, memories of the time they have shared. By partnering with Hope Africa you can help bring an end to the life of poverty that is passed from one generation to the next.
Our aim is to impact one life at a time. Our long-term vision is to diversify the charity across Africa.
What we do?
“Although there are lots of NGOs and charities in other African countries, the poorest of the poor are not spotted. You really have to identify the villages which are off the beaten track to find the poorest people who have no food, no water and no hope. They take each day as it comes without knowing where food will come from. Hospital facilities are mostly found in big cities and those people in the remote villages, in most cases, do not have access to hospitals. As a result people in these remote villages die of diseases and illnesses that otherwise could have been prevente”.
We have found people living in the middle of nowhere with nothing. We have found out that through Sodac local church committee, we can identify the poorest people in the villages. This brings hope and a future to people who otherwise are forgotten.
Founder and Trustee – SODAC
In 1998 fred kabogoza helped establish SODAC in uganda,kenya,tanania, to provide care and education for girls orphaned by wars in African countries.2 years later, Eas African Countries are surffering of famine,poverty, and there is need for the helping orphanage. Rather than abandon this important mission, our focus was redirected to Africa and our name still exists to Save orphans and disabled African Children as a Foundation or an organization.
The Save orphans and disabled African Children Foundation became officially incorporated into Africa in 2003 and is recognized as a non-profit. Since 2004 we have provided education, food, clothing, and shelter for orphaned girls and boys in Africa. Over the years we have continued to grow and expand and are currently operating in Tanzania, Ethiopia, Kenya, and Uganda.
The need for support in Africa continues to be great, but corruption is also quite prevalent. SODAC has taken extensive steps toward securing the funds that we allocate to our orphans. In most cases our program begins with a local ‘sponsor’ who already lives in Africa and personally knows of honest and devoted guardians within the community who are already caring for orphaned girls and boys, but who are in need of financial assistance. We can offer such support. We have defined a guardian as an organization, such as an established orphanage, or an individual, such as a relative, but not the child’s biological parents. Through our sponsors, we are able to verify that the orphan is receiving adequate care and that the guardian will use the money for the child’s direct welfare.
Additionally, because the sponsors are local, we are able to fund opportunities that might not ordinarily receive charity because of their small size, geographic location, or grassroots origins. SODAC does not promote political or religious activities of any kind and therefore abstains from funding religiously affiliated institutions or organizations, regardless of their level of care. Additionally, we have also taken precautions to ensure that our sponsors do not have any financial ties to the guardian or the orphan.
