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….

Amafoto Ethu (“Our Photos”) featured on NPR’s “The Picture Show”

This morning, NPR’s The Picture Show blog published a piece about CHOSA’s upcoming photo exhibition in Washington, DC. Since 2006, CHOSA has been running photography workshops with the kids, providing a creative outlet, encouraging critical thinking and problem solving and an opportunity for the children to show the rest of us what the world looks like through their eyes.

Congratulations to Paul Kline!

Photographer Paul Kline visited a number of CHOSA projects in late 2008 to lead photo workshops as part of CHOSA’s Arts Initiative.  The children LOVED their time with him and enjoyed the chance to try *new* things with the cameras.  Their work will be on display June 3rd in Washington, DC. Paul has remained in…
