Money donated to General Funds are the easiest way to give. They provide the most flexibility for SOHI and the community leaders and are used on the highest priority initiatives where they will best help to address the greatest needs. Donations to this fund are also used for minimal SOHI administration as well as to fund the highest priority initiatives in the four focus areas.
For transformative change to take place, the people must have hope and confidence that a better life is possible and that they can make it happen. Thus, transformation activities are community led and community owned to produce sustainable reduction in poverty. SOHI teams with the local community as a partner to assist them in transforming their standard of living by providing ideas, technology solutions, training, and strategic infrastructure that is essential, but unaffordable, with the community’s current economic situation.
