Sot-uganda International

Organization Description: 

SOT-UGANDA INTERNATIONAL, here and after abbreviated as SOT, Sot-uganda international begun as an independent non-profit indigenous church-based charitable organization. The organization was started in 2005 by Musenero julius, to try and stop the tide of orphaning in particular, and the spread of HIV/AIDS in general, these two factors having been the most frequent situations the church members would turn up for counseling and prayer about.

It was first called SAVE ORPHANS TODAY but as the intended boundaries were found to be outstripped by demand, as the need for services was growing at a speed so terrific, in an area so wide than the resources, physical, financial and human, could handle. In light of this, and in expectation of the future, owing partly to unending spread of AIDS and partly to increasing abject poverty, SOT was upgraded to a community based organization on from a small church based organization. So from 2007, SOT is a fully fledged independent organization with headquarters at Nakalama 2km from Iganga a town in eastern Uganda, about 3 hours away from Kampala the capital of Uganda. The Organization have branch offices in other dstricts like in bugiri,Kyankwanzi and shall continuously have branch offices as the needs of HIV/AIDS sensitization, Widows, communities, Orphans and Vulnerable children may arise from time to time.
