As a Rotarian, Cosmos has volunteered and served on many charitable projects of the club. Some of these projects include Rotary Family Health Day. Just to mention a few, this project brings health screening, immunization and distribution of drugs to the deprived communities in Accra; Walk for Polio Eradication, which creates awareness and raises funds to eradicate polio globally; career guidance training in schools; donation of books and learning materials for schools. Additionally, Cosmos contributes to Strategy Africa’s quest to bringing education and human right’s advocacy to marginalized children.
