COBURWAS is a nonprofit organisation which uses education as a means to empower young people to become socially responsible leaders and entrepreneurs as well as change agents within their communities and across Africa. The organisation has been able to help children realise their dreams through the construction of an innovative Nursery and Primary School in Kyangwali and a Youth Hostel Program in a nearby town allowing over 100 students to attend secondary school.

OAC is glad to reach out to more children under the platform of COBURWAS. More is achieved when resourced are pulled together to achieve a common goal.
