In his welcome address to the Ms. Kihslinger the Governor of Cross River State Senator Liyel Imoke who was represented by Dr. Tom Ogar; Secretary to the State Government expressed the willingness of the State Government to partner with CORAfrica in the area of Education, Health and Agriculture, having clearly studied its mission and vision for the education of children.

He reiterated the readiness of the present administration to transform the rural sector and remarked that the programs of CORAfrica are in line with the rural transformation agenda of the Imoke administration.

In her remarks, Ms Kihslinger proposed that for children and communities to thrive better, the state government should consider the adoption of CorAfrica Community Education (CEC) model as the State’s implementation tool for education and community development.

On behalf of CorAfrica, she promised to contribute in the collaborative process ahead.

Children of Rural Africa (CorAfrica) was founded by Rev. Fr. Peter Obele Abue, a Catholic priest of Ogoja diocese, Cross River State, with a focus on improving the education of rural children through the promotion of healthcare, agriculture, water and sanitation as well as economic empowerment programs as they affect the livelihood of children in rural communities.

In June 2006, Fr. Abue officially inaugurated CorAfrica and was formally granted the status of a 501(c) non-profit organization in the United States of America. Thereafter in 2011, CorAfrica was localized in Nigeria first with the National Planning Commission under the Bilateral and Economic Commission and later with the Corporate Affairs Commission as a local NGO.

Since then, CorAfrica has been operating its two main branches under the leadership of its founder who builds upon the experience and successes of his past work in the USA and Nigeria.

Presently, CorAfrica operates its educational projects in Mbube Ogoja and Ipong-Obudu LGA.
