For over 40 years, SAWSO has been delivering a proven approach to engaging individuals, families, and communities in evaluating their needs; creating transformational action plans; implementing effective strategies; and understanding how and why their actions can create positive change.
Through funds entrusted to us, SAWSO is presently engaged in more than $45 million worth of projects throughout the world. Programs, projects, and activities provide tools and structure, but the real investment is in people. Our projects emphasize local ownership and community involvement as keys for lasting success. In all of our work, we employ a holistic approach to meet the physical, emotional, social, and spiritual needs of those served.
With a presence in 131 countries, The Salvation Army’s global footprint is SAWSO’s map for engagement.
