Message to our dear donors:

The world is experiencing extreme challenges in the wake of this corona virus pandemic COVID 19. Measures prescribed by Public Health to stem the rate of infection like social and physical distancing are onerous for individuals and societies to say the least.
However these measures translate to real hardship for a great number of CSA benefactors more so because these measure are incongruent with social norms and daily life activities. Observing these public health measures is nonetheless essential. For this reason CSA is initiating COVID 19 fund drive. This entails working with our agents to provide additional support targeted at encouraging social and physical distancing as observance of these measures are integral to the overall success of ongoing programs; of women empowerment and economic self reliance.
To sustain this COVID 19 imperative CSA is calling on our beloved and devoted donors for more support. No amount, as always, is too little. In this time of great need it is important to remember that our efforts as a an organization remain the same; to empower women and protect children by funding clusters of sustainable local economic initiatives; investing in the talent and resources of women.

Pity is not enough, compassion is a real and deep human feeling, sympathy and empathy are good, but solidarity is better, and collaboration is the best thing we can offer to Africans especially the women and children who want to work hard to realize a better future for themselves and their children.
