Welcome to South Saharan Social Development Organisation (SSDO)

As we are all well aware, Africa, south of the Sahara, is regarded by many as the poster child for the “Dolorous Ds” that have afflicted humankind since the beginning of time: discord, debt, danger, drought, disease, depression, despair, desperation, destruction, doom, devastation, darkness and death.

We, at SSDO, recognize that the time has now come for the emergence of a truly developed Sub Saharan Africa. And, of course, a radical transformation of the consciousness of the individual South Saharan, lies at the heart of this emergence. With this goal clearly in focus, SSDO, and its small team of highly motivated and deeply dedicated men and women, innovate and implement programmes that foster the mental, physical and spiritual growth and wellbeing of the most marginalized and neglected members of our communities.
