“Each time someone stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the life of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope”
Life has its fortunes and neglects; one could find at a time the unpleasant taste of life, as seen our communities being devoured by the current HIV/AIDS due to different circumstances and here leaving innocent lives without a choice of basic living conditions. We then find certainty in great minds that appreciate humanity and so giving life value. Out of the wisdom of men we have come to understand that the identity of a person is in his/her qualification thus making them able to infiltrate the buriers of employment and so leading to financial stability. Regardless of gender or status we believe all man should receive adequate education, life skills and because of our different rate at grasping information, it has been found to be most effective to develop and equip people in job skills.
We here then find Colossa Foundation the well inspired idea of REGINALT COLOSSA, who was greatly inspired to see young South Africans well nourished in education. This idea was found – forwarded and initiated; Colossa Foundation was then implemented as a Non Profit Organization (NPO) with the intention to assist financially children together with young people of an underprivileged state. Our major focus here then boils down to those children affected by HIV and AIDS.
Our different approach to assist communities by educating the underprivileged through bursary programmes increases the basic knowledge and life skills of one reducing the number of child headed families, here by allowing us to implement the Children’s rights Acts to receive appropriate education and freedom to play. With a step further to upgrade our communities, the inclusion of youth skills and development programmes enables us to invest in income generating projects that will not only empower young people but give back to the community.
