Coalition for a Sustainable Africa (CSAfrica) is a collaboration of non-profit organizations offering sustainable solutions for grass-roots initiatives to empower the people and communities of Africa.
Collectively, CSA is currently working in nine countries with programs focused on children, health, economics, education, women’s empowerment, orphan care and the environment. Through CSAfrica’s local community-driven development approach, the projects address the elimination of poverty, and help to promote peace and security.
CSAfrica is currently establishing a resource center – both in Los Angeles and virtually on the web - where it is realizing effective models for cooperative management and creating synergy by sharing ideas, best practices, skills, resources and networks. Through collaborative efforts CSAfrica is building a supportive and efficient professional infrastructure to help expand impact, vision and capacity. CSAfrica is bridging the gap between communities in Africa, the greater Los Angeles community and beyond.
CSAfrica is creating a solid foundation for collaboration and increasing access to and for the African continent. To meet these goals, CSAfrica interfaces with local and international organizations, small businesses, large corporations, educational and religious institutions, governmental agencies, individuals, celebrities and the media.
