June 16th is Youth Day in South Africa. This public holiday commemorates the 1976 protests of young people against the Apartheid government’s unjust educational system.
Many children and teens in South Africa still face challenges when it comes to receiving a good education and accessing basic needs such as nutritious foods and a safe, healthy home environment. At CHOSA, we work tirelessly to help local community-based organizations educate and care for children in some of South Africa’s poorest communities.
You can help CHOSA continue to support orphaned and vulnerable children.
