Social Development International (SODEIT) is a social development and relief organization which is not for profit, non governmental and non discriminating charity organization with the vision of working for the practical realization of sustainable social development initiatives by protecting the vulnerable and risky population and their communities.
SODEIT was formed in December 2005 with the aim of promoting social and economic transformation for the poor and underserved population. To become agents of positive change irrespective of their nationality, class, color, race or social status; through personal transformation practices, social change training, education, advocacy, health, and charity. It is staffed by dedicated volunteers and sustained financially by individuals, organizations and foundations who support its mission.
SODEIT works to help children, adolescent and care-givers live a better life. At the same time, our organization pays specific attention to women and youths who are the most vulnerable population with respect to inequality, discrimination, poverty and human rights abuse in our communities.

It also exists to put in place proactive and participatory parameters to facilitate sustainable social development of social and economic justice, peace and security.
