Charity profile

Who We Are - The Sozo Foundation is a non-profit organisation, based in the impoverished Cape Flats community of Vrygrond, Cape Town. The Foundation creates opportunities for youth development through Education, Skills Development and Social Enterprise. Our vision is to see the community of Vrygrond living with dignity, purpose and hope. We live by our motto, we help people to know they’re loved, so they can love others.

How we do it - For our work to be sustainable for years to come, forming deep and lasting relationships with community members is essential, which is why everything we do in the community is through relationship with individuals and other like-minded organisations. In addition, two-thirds of our staff are from the community itself.
