Chooda is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with a vision of personal transformation and global social change. Chooda's mission is to create transformative experiences for its participants while providing much needed resources abroad. We at Chooda believe that by advocating for social justice in the world and by contributing a part of ourselves in service to others, we evolve. In this spirit, we create international adventure experiences where participants challenge themselves in a variety of ways (physically, mentally, spiritually, emotionally) while having the opportunity to engage with communities for whom they have raised money and awareness and to interact with the local organizations that are working to make such social change possible. Crucial to our vision is the fostering of positive social interactions between our communities in culturally sensitive and mindful ways.
