Amafoto Event a Success!

Thanks to everyone who attended Amafoto Ethu in Washington, DC on June 3rd!

While we could have done without the torrential downpours, the braai was delicious with authentic South African boerewors, mealie pap and Mrs. Balls chutney!  After braving the rain, more than 70 guests joined CHOSA at The George Washington University’s Mount Vernon campus.

Each of the young photographers (residents of Baphumelele Children’s Home and Emasithandane Children’s Project) created their own bio’s and described WHY they wanted to display each photo.

Below a photo of three beaming children, a young photographer wrote, “This one has got happy people.  I love to see happy people” — We love to see happy people, too — and couldn’t be happier to have seen everyone “meeting” the kids who make CHOSA what it is.

Thanks to The Elizabeth Somers Women’s Leadership Program for the donation of the beautiful venue and to Brett Mares who manned the braai in the rain!  We couldn’t have done it without you!
