The Fondation Soutien aux Orphelins et appui aux Initiatives Féminines (SOIF - Support to Orphans and Women's Initiatives) is a nonprofit organization that's been working in Togo since 2003 in rural and semi-urban areas in four of the five administrative regions of the country. SOIF's mission is to improve the living conditions of orphans, destitute children, and struggling women in Togo. The organization seeks to contribute to the development of children and to the reduction of economic and social disparities preventing the integration of disadvantaged people. SOIF's actions are designed to empower women, strengthen their capacity to manage their income-generating activities, raising awareness and providing training on topics such as violence, inheritance and claim mechanisms, education and early marriage of young girls.
