CIYOTA has created several chapters in communities across Uganda and the DRC where people in the community have risen up to build their own schools, develop innovative education programs, and united people of all tribes and backgrounds along the common vision of developing their communities together.  In doing so, a new generation is being raised who share the values of love, peace, and unity and the vision of a peaceful and prosperous DRC. 

Our Model

In everything we do, a sense of responsibility for community development is fostered, and COBURWAS leaders strive to empower every individual they touch to be a problem-solving, visionary leader for change. Members at local, national and international levels share the principle of developing a united, self-sustained community starting from zero to what great leaders, entrepreneurs have never imagined.

The Tri-fold approach coupled with emphasis on strong sense of ownership for the community by the community and passion for Pan-Africa. We understands that to create great leadership & entrepreneurs without character can be detrimental, but also teaching character without leadership & entrepreneurship would leave the current and next generation of leaders unprepared to face the responsibilities and opportunities to make the Africa a better place.
