Groceries. Water and electricity. Clothing. Medicine. These ongoing expenses are familiar to any parent or caregiver of children, and these are some of the very things covered by CHOSA’s monthly grants. Five of our partners (two preschools, one children’s home, one girls’ empowerment program, and one housing/scholarship fund) receive monthly deposits to use for the benefit of the children and families in their care. The funds assist communities with their day-to-day operations in order to provide safe and nurturing homes and experiences for their children.
CHOSA grants are 100% unrestricted. CHOSA’s on-ground team facilitates a process where projects are required to account for the funding after it is spent, but retain the ability to decide how best to spend the money. The most important job of our on-ground team is building and sustaining open and trusting relationships with the organizations we support.
