The Salvation Army World Service Office (SAWSO), opened in 1977, is designed to find lasting solutions to poverty around the world. Since the beginning, SAWSO personnel have maintained the original aim: to help people help themselves through sustainable programs that improve living conditions, raise skill levels, increase productivity and instill self-confidence.
SAWSO works within numerous program areas with expertise in topics of Anti-Human Trafficking, HIV/AIDS, Community Health, Disaster Relief, Economic Empowerment, Microfinance and others. Goals in each of these program areas are realized through partnership with the local communities, other Non-governmental Organizations (NGOs), various US government funding agencies and donors.
