CHOSA supports grassroots community-based organisations in South Africa that reach out to and care for orphans and vulnerable children
Community School Student Partnerships (CSSP), despite operating all over West Philadelphia within different schools with different programs, is first and foremost a family... and what says "family" more than an annual barbecue? Each spring, over 200 kids from the various programs come together at the University of Pennsylvania to partake in fun and games and get to know each other. In spending their day together, they make friends and become of each other as part of a larger community. The Social Action Project, this year working to raise money for CHOSA, is a critical part of this process, allowing the kids to work towards one common goal and one common purpose. As the kids cycle through planned activities, including Tug-Of-War, a cultural carnival, field games, and food from the grill, they'll be doing one of their favorite activities, jump-roping, to raise money and awareness for kids not so different from themselves in Khayelitscha, Cape Town. It's a day of fun and a day for doing good!
