Sozo Lifeskills facilitates courses that equip people emotionally, spiritually, economically and socially. We believe that teaching people these essential skills enables them to gain self-respect, take responsibility and develop their initiative.
Lifeskills Project transition to Sozo Care
From our experience working with Vrygrond community members over the past five years, we have seen how trauma and various other challenges directly inhibit community members from making the most of the programmes offered by Sozo.
To ramp up our efforts of holistic development, we are thrilled to announce that the Lifeskills Project will be incorporated into a new project, Sozo Care. The new project will offer psychosocial support services to each project in the form of counselling, lifeskills programmes, support groups, referrals and other means.
We believe Sozo Care will provide a practical tool through which Vrygrond families and individuals can experience healing and restoration, and cannot wait for its launch in 2016.
