As part of the study abroad program in South Africa, CSUSB students, university President Tomás D. Morales and faculty director Tiffany F. Jones visited the Othandweni Family Care Centre in Soweto, delivering $2,000 worth of diapers, formula, toiletries, school supplies, rice and maize meal with funds donated by community members, President Morales, university staff, faculty and students.

When CSUSB students visited the Orthandweni Family Care Centre in 2019, the delegation of students was able to purchase $2,000 worth of diapers, wipes and space heaters with funds raised by the campus community. A GoFundMe page has been set up to raise money for the 2023 to benefit the orphanage.
