Charity number


SOS Africa is a UK registered charity, which funds the education and care of underprivileged children from the poorest areas of Southern Africa. We believe that the only way to break the cycle of poverty which continues to haunt African societies is through the provision of education, hence the charity's mission; to 'Empower Through Education.'

SOS Africa was established in 2003 by a UK student during his gap year placement in South Africa. We began by funding the education and care of one child and now, with the help of our sponsors, support many deserving African township children.

SOS Africa is a special charity, not just because of our story, but also because we are predominantly volunteer-run and guarantee that every penny you raise will be invested in the futures of the children we support - All our operating expenses are covered by GiftAid and by the SOS Africa Charity Shop.
