What’s the Need?

Since the AIDS crisis in Africa began, Mabule and the small villages surrounding it have been devastated with a multitude of deaths of their people. In spite of several gains in providing reliable testing and free anti-retroviral medications to people infected with the AIDS virus, the need to care for orphaned children in the wake of this epidemic continues to grow.

WHO WE ARE

The Society for Children Orphaned by AIDS (SOCOBA) is a youth mobilization center aimed at providing supplemental education, basic life skills, youth empowerment programs and strategies, and health services to vulnerable children and those orphaned or infected by HIV/AIDS. We are a public benefit non-profit corporation based in Washington, DC USA and operating in Mabule, Botswana. Founder Sego Seferian, has witnessed firsthand the impact of this global pandemic and felt the personal loss of her own brother to the battle against HIV/AIDS. This family loss and the countless loss of others close to her, in tandem with witnessing a generation of HIV/AIDS orphans growing up with a multitude of needs, propelled the formation of SOCOBA.

OUR MISSION

SOCOBA’s mission is to provide a safe place for growth, opportunity and hope for those youth and vulnerable children orphaned by HIV/AIDS in Mabule, Botswana.

OUR VISION

SOCOBA’s vision is to enable orphans and vulnerable children and youth to be self-sufficient and responsible for their own personal health and well-being.

CORE VALUES

Our principled beliefs are centered around five values which drive our endeavors:

Empowerment

…instilling the confidence to create a foundation for self-reliance and stability.

 Resilience

…fostering the will to persevere against the face of adversity.

Respect

…recognizing every person’s dignity of self and every person within the community.

Empathy

…understanding other’s struggle and showing compassion

Hope

…realizing the possibility of creating a future free from HIV/AIDS.
