The Mwebaza Foundation creates classroom space from containers for its African partner schools.

Comprised of a group of local educators and professionals, The Mwebaza Foundation is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charitable organization engaged in the promotion of cross-cultural exchange between partner schools in Colorado and Africa.

The Mwebaza Foundation’s mission is to enrich the relationships among our Colorado and African partner schools through cross-cultural exchange and service learning that enhances educational opportunities, fosters a healthy learning environment and promotes self-sufficiency.

Through the Mwebaza Foundation, our Colorado partner schools and their
communities raise funds to help with the various needs of our African
partner schools. This includes construction of schools and classrooms,
providing books and other classroom supplies, teacher training, as well as
general care for disadvantaged school children. We also assist with the
development of sustainable food programs and cottage industries at our
partner schools in an effort to promote self-sufficiency.
