In Sub-Saharan Africa a child is orphaned every 14 seconds.  In the wake of the HIV/AIDS pandemic, there are over 15,000,000 orphans living there.Our Work

In the small Southern African kingdom of Swaziland, HIV/AIDS infects more than one in four people, making it the country with the highest HIV/AIDS prevalence rate in the world.  The result is an exploding number of households headed by children, some as young as eight or nine years old.

Saving Orphans through Healthcare and Outreach and Outreach (SOHO) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that exists to improve the quality of life and life expectancy of orphans and vulnerable children (OVCs), especially child-headed households, living in communities deeply affected by HIV/AIDS.

SOHO engages with an international network of collaborators and volunteers to provide programs and services that work to heal, educate, feed, empower and nurture orphans and vulnerable children.
