SOCH
 ('Serenje Orphans Childrens Home') is an orphanage in Serenje, a small rural town in Zambia, some 500km from the capital city, Lusaka.  Residing at SOCH are 24 children of Primary School age. Children leaving SOCH continue to be supported by SOCH through various initiatives.

LATEST NEWS (March 2020):  Sadly, the July 2020 SOA trip from Geneva has had to be cancelled due to the threats posed to international travel by the coronavirus. The next school trip will be in 2021.

SOA is seeking donations to cover the 2021 college tuition fees (from January to December) for the anticipated 6 orphans in Zambian university/colleges. These include 3 girls who will be in their final year (2 in Nursing and 1 in Teaching), 1 boy (Nursing)  who will finish in 2022, and 2 girls who will be in their first year of Nursing. The cost of tuition and accommodation fees per student is about £100 per month. If YOU can help even with a small regular monthly donation, it will be greatly appreciated by these young folk. Click here to donate through JustGiving.
