OERB will be celebrating 75 years of its establishment next year.  OERB is planning to record its history in written and visual form.  Many Oshwals now residing outside East Africa have their origins in East Africa.  Many of them went through Oshwal Boarding and Oshwal Schools.  Many lived in different centres throughout East Africa – in smaller centres in remote parts of the country.  All of you therefore have a rich history to tell us.
