The Washington DC area chapter of the OPWA is part of a global alumni organization of the Prince of Wales School, which includes the Old Prince Waleans Association of UK and Ireland, Associations of New Jersey, Georgia, and California. The following is a partial list of achievements and projects completed by these global Associations over the past decade
1,000 chairs to the school
We raised $14,000 in three months from Prince Waleans to purchase and ship 1,000 chairs to the school to ease the chronic shortage of chairs for the pupils.
Teacher’s revolving fund
We were the first Association to set up a teacher’s revolving fund that allowed teachers of the school to be paid their monthly wages when the government was delayed in doing so.
Family Fun Day
We developed the “Family Fun Day” at the end of summer in the Washington Metro Area, which now encompasses several other Alumni Associations and Sierra Leonean organizations.
