A Brief Profile of the Old Prince Waleans Association (U.S.A.), Inc

The Old Prince Waleans Association (U.S.A.), Inc. (OPWA), was established in 1987 by a group of former students of the Prince of Wales School (POW) residing in the United States of America. These princewaleans recognized the need for substantial financial and material support to their alma mater, and were prepared to make the necessary sacrifices to improve the quality of teaching and learning at the School in Sierra Leone.
