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.
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 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!
