Charlize Theron talking to a young child

TOMS is proud to partner with Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project (CTAOP) and support its programs that educate and empower youth to keep themselves safe from HIV/AIDS.



Charlize Theron founded CTAOP in 2007 in an effort to support African youth in the fight against HIV/AIDS. Although the geographic scope of CTAOP is Sub-Saharan Africa, the primary area of focus is Charlize’s home country of South Africa.


For every TOMS + CTAOP product purchased, TOMS will donate $5 for the benefit of CTAOP to support their programs working to help African youth keep themselves safe from HIV/AIDS.* As always, with every product you purchase, TOMS will help a person in need. One for One®.

*Minimum contribution of 100K USD to CTAOP


Of the 1.8 million adolescents living with HIV, about 1.4 million (80%) live in Sub-Saharan Africa.
