CHOSA’s mission is to identify and support communities and community based organizations (CBOs) that reach out and take care of orphans and other vulnerable children in South Africa.
CHOSA takes a holistic and non-directive approach to community development which helps empower other marginalized people in these communities. Moreover, through community participation and ownership of the development process, CHOSA promotes local action, self-empowerment, and peer-to-peer networking as essential strategies for community-driven development.
We do this by providing five major services to the projects with whom we partner:
After School Programs
Driven by the principle that communities should own their development process, we provide our partners with unrestricted funding and a supportive relationship that promotes autonomous decision-making.
