The SOS Africa Children’s Charity (UK Charity No. 1188705) is a grassroots child sponsorship organisation which invests 100% of your donation in the education and care of African children. Since 2003 we have provided disadvantaged children, from grades 1 to 12, with a personal education programme or learning support scheme tailored specifically to their needs. This holistic approach enables children to break the cycle of poverty and reach their full potential.
