Our intent is to draw attention to the gradual transformation of Africa through human and cultural development at grassroots level in Africa. We will showcase some of the life-changing projects of CSA in order to demonstrate why and how identifying, prioritizing and supporting the assets of Africans could offer a better structure and framework for sustainable development in Africa that meets the needs of Africans. This year we will focus on CAR women and Uganda projects with our Guest speaker sister Rosemary Nyirumbe from SEWING HOPE.
