I am an active donor for SOHO and fully believe they are working to make a difference in the world. They are a great organization and are filled with caring individuals. SOHO is a great organization to feel a part of.

I have attended a few fund raising events for SOHO and have learned a lot about issues concerning the children of Sub – Saharan Africa. The people are passionate and have great stories of kids already benefiting from their work. I like knowing that my small contribution will be going toward more stories like those. The fact that the people with SOHO are so knowledgeable and well equipped to carry out their mission means a lot to me.

I went last March to Swaziland with my University and SOHO. I was blown away at how much SOHO was making lie better for the orphans in Swaziland. They are giving these children hope and a real chance at life. I pledged to continue to be apart of this wonderful organization and make life better for those children. May God continue to bless SoHO in the work that they are doing.

As of right now I do not see any changes that need to be made.

I became involved with SOHO this past summer when the nonprofit I work for (Art With a Heart) decided to partner with SOHO on the first Art, Full of Hope trip to Swaziland. From day one, I was impressed with SOHO and Annie (Program and Research Development) - coordinating an international collegiate service-learning program with excellent planning and organization. Annie was well prepared and a wealth of knowledge during the entire process, prepping all participants through cultural trainings and reading material related to the struggles of the region. SOHO’s efforts are making a huge difference in the lives of many Swazi children. I was able to see this first hand this November and will be forever changed.

I have had a great experience with SOHO. I volunteered for the Mile for a Child event. It was beautifully organized and ran so smoothly. In addition, they did a really good job raising awareness for the problems that face children in Sub-Saharan Africa through beautiful photographs, t shirts, and word of mouth. The members of the organization are so passionate about their mission and are always coming up with innovative sustainable ways to serve the orphans of Sub-Saharan Africa.

I have seen how successful programs like the recent Art trip to Swaziland. Through this trip SOHO engaged many college age students to take action on a global level. The art produced by the orphans was amazing and will hopefully sell to make this trip even more sustainable and beneficial to the orphans of Swaziland.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

give them more money to work with. I think this is a small organization with big dreams. I think if they had the means to launch larger more sustainable programs they would be able to be even more of a blessing to the orphans of Swaziland.

I had the opportunity to travel to Swaziland on the Art: Full of Hope trip. It was truly a life changing experience for me and it was amazing to see how much we were helping the children in Swaziland just by being there and showing that we care! SOHO is an awesome organization and I wish more people would take the time to learn about and support their mission. Any little bit helps, as we saw when we traveled to Swaziland and I can't wait to help out more in the future!

seek out more donors, volunteers, and supporters by offering more trips to Swaziland. I feel like the mission of the organization cannot fully be understood unless you are completely submersed in the culture.

Would you volunteer for this group again?

Definitely

SOHO has done a wonderful job of raising awareness and educating people about what the situation in Africa is and how people can get involved to help! I think that a lot of people want to be aware of what is going on and I think the majority of the people that understand the situation want to help but they aren't sure how to do so... SOHO has given me the opportunity to not only help but also get involved!! GREAT ORGANIZATION!!!!

I donated money to the orphans education and I personally saw my money making an impact on the lives of the kids who otherwise wouldn't have been able to go to school.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Put on more charitable events to raise awareness. I think that putting on these events really makes it fun for people to be involved and to get involved!!!
