Obaa's Girls Education Outreach
- NOCAL, through its CSR Division, is committed to financing the supply of school uniforms to students at Obaa’s Girls Education Outreach.
- Obaa’s Girls Education Outreach is a non- profit organization. It caters to underprivileged children, by providing them with an education they would not otherwise receive. For the 2012 academic year, over 100 students received uniforms. All the uniforms provided were made within Liberia from local tie-dye material.
- Helping these children while simultaneously supporting the local market is an enormous source of pride for NOCAL.
