Sozo works to create transformational and sustainable solutions through initiatives in health care, education, and economic development. Flatirons has helped fund three key infrastructures in a new community made up of around 4,000 former IDPs (Internally Displaced People): a school, a clinic, and a water system that provides safe drinking water. Sozo also operates a school in Kabul that provides education and a meal to almost 800 kids who work various jobs on the streets of Kabul to support their families. We’ve outlined ways to get involved below.
