Background

BACKGROUND HISTORY

Following the brutal rape of baby Lerato, in 2000, a group of celebrated musicians and our CEO, Dr Nobs Mwanda, led by the eminent Dr Sibongile Khumalo, came together to bewail the loss of community sense and care of children.  An Isililo Campaign was born, and its major focus was to try and understand how we got to such a low point in our society.  From this campaign, COPESSA was born and operations started in 2004 in Protea Glen,  Soweto.
