My name is Waliba Liyajabale Thomas and I am a final year student of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology in Kumasi, Ghana, pursuing BSc. Geomatic Engineering.
I have been a beneficiary of the Educational Pathways International (EPI) Scholarship for the past three years. And I can proudly say that I owe my Tertiary Education to EPI, through whose benevolence I have received all the resources I needed for a successful tertiary education. Ranging from financial support to seminars, educational talks, training sessions, luncheons and other social benefits.
I would like to express my profound gratitude to EPI for this great opportunity granted me, the EPI scholarship has catered for all my needs and giving me the room to concentrated solely on my academics. Through this opportunity offered me by EPI, I have increased progressively in my academic performances. I can boldly say that through the influence of EPI I have improved upon my performances every semester and academic year to stages I never thought were possible all thanks to EPI.
Growing up in a Village in Ghana- a developing country, were land is the only resource believed to belong to the dead, living and the unborn and as such must be protected and bequeathed to the yet unborn, this often results in conflicts between families, clans and tribes and to some extent resulting into generational conflicts due to ownership, boundary demarcations and land rights. I chose to pursue Geomatic Engineering with the aim of contributing to mitigating this old canker that has bedevilled my people in years past. Through legal surveys of property boundaries, land managements and planning which will engage all parties that have interest in the land to find a legal, appropriate and peaceful way of resolving land disputes instead of generational conflicts.
I would like to practice my profession as a Geomatic Engineer. As such I would proceed after completion to become a member of the Professional Bodies which are the Ghana Institute of Engineers (GhIE) and Ghana Institute of Surveyors (GhIS) so that I can establish my own firm as a private Consultant in Geomatic Engineering. Through this, I can give back to my community and country through the services I would render to my clients and the human resources I would employ in my firm. And also offer opportunity to students to do industrial attachments and National Service.
I can not be thankful enough, for I have come this far by the grace of God and the support of the EPI. Therefore, on behalf of my entire family and on my own behalf, I say thank you very much from my heart, indeed EPI is touching many lives of which I am a testimony. I will on my part, make sure that the support I have received from EPI, will have a ripple effect on the people around me and my country Ghana, Once again Thank you very much EPI for this wonderful opportunity.

I am Gabriel Edudzi Banini, a 5th-year Medical student at the Kwame Nkrumah University of
Science and Technology (KNUST). Three years ago, I took a scholarship application to the
scholarship office on campus and guess what, the secretary refused to accept my application.
It was actually my fault because I had missed the deadline by an hour. My next option was to
get a student loan or a campus job, both of which come with lots of disadvantages. As I was
making my way out of the office, feeling very disappointed, I met a friend at the entrance
who told me about Educational Pathways International (EPI) scholarship program. I
downloaded the form as soon as I got to my hostel, filled it, and submitted it to the office the next day. To cut the story short, I was among the few privileged students to be selected for the EPI scholarship.
Right from childhood, I’ve always loved science and I see science as a medium to help
people and by getting admission into Medical School, my dream of using science to help
people is gradually becoming a reality. One way I plan to do this is by setting up a mobile
clinic network in the future that will operate mainly within rural communities.
I must admit Medical School would have been very difficult for me if I hadn’t met EPI.
Before I joined EPI, I used to worry a lot about my education and the future, so getting this
scholarship has been of great help to me, and it has given me the peace of mind I need to
study. The Covid-19 pandemic affected my parents financially but with the help of EPI, I’m
still in school with no worries and studying very hard for my end-of-rotation exams which I’ll be taking in two weeks’ time.
Being in EPI is not just about the financial aid, there’s so much more. I’ve personally learnt
so much about social issues and personal development through our monthly meetings with
Aunty Eunice, I get to meet and interact with other beneficiaries of EPI. Now I can say for a
fact that my problem-solving skills and confidence level have improved significantly. She has also taught me a lot about savings and good investment strategies. Our end-of-semester get-together party is something I always look forward to. This is where we get to meet and interact with our benefactors from the USA and also interact with other beneficiaries of EPI as well. Through this, I’ve made a lot of good friends. And of course, there’s always a lot of delicious food to eat!
By the grace of God, I will graduate next year. I can never be thankful enough to EPI for all
the support, I will forever be grateful to EPI for restoring my hope when I needed it the most.
The future looks bright and it’s all thanks to EPI!

I am in the person of Gideon Kwofie, a second year Electrical and Electronic Engineering student of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Ghana. I am a young man full of dreams and aspirations, always imagining being great Electrical Engineer helping many unfortunate people in my community and the world at large. This passion has always gingered me to give out my best in academics in order to make this dream realistic one.
Right after high school, I gained admission to pursue my dream program at the university I had loved to attend. However, this vision started fading away due to financial constraints faced by my parents. There was then no hope for me for achieving my dreams. My dreams were shattered. Fortunately for me, I heard of Educational Pathways International (EPI) scholarship scheme and I applied for it. I successfully became a beneficiary of this scholarship which rekindled all the hopes that were almost dead.
It is exactly two years now I have been in this scholarship scheme and I have never regretted for being a beneficiary. The scholarship is a comprehensive one that covers all my university education expenses. It also takes care of my accommodation fees and even some stipend. As a result, I do not have financial challenge for my education.
Educational Pathways International scholarship package did not only provide monetary help for my academics. We are taken through Life transforming programs and seminars which has really helped me. Some of these seminars centered on time management, communication skills both at school and in the corporate world and many others. Also, we learn other educational and job-oriented skills which has also been of great help. For instance, learning how to prepare Curriculum Vitae, among others.
EPI has really transformed my life and I really appreciate all persons who spend their resource in one way or the other to make this scholarship package always running each year. I am very grateful for this scholarship program helping many young men and women to achieve their goals in life. It is my prayer that the Almighty God bless each and every one who is involved in ensuring the smooth running of the scholarship scheme.

I am Kwofie Gideon, a first year BSc. Electrical/Electronic Engineering student of Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Kumasi-Ghana. I am nineteen years.

Life was quite tough when the joy I had upon gaining admission to the university was short-lived. “What money am I going to use for my school fees”? The whole world became a tunnel in the midnight of a solar eclipse for me, but in the midst of this came from within a sequel to this dreadful and dream shattering tunnel; a light of joy threw into my path by Educational Pathways International (EPI). I didn’t know how to control my joy when such a miracle happened.

At the onset of this financial constraints faced by my parents, I thought my vision of becoming a professional Electrical and Electronic Engineer and the world’s popular inventor (the underlining reason for my choice of program of study) has come to an abrupt end. Thanks be to God and Educational Pathways International that this great vision of mine didn’t fade into thin air.

All my visions and ambitions in life have revived. I can now mold my life to suit my ambitions. I now have the desire to learn and my academic performance has improved in the sense that I don’t have to think about financial difficulties again.

The numerous lives benefiting topics EPI secretariat has taken us through alone is amazing. I have really learned much from the meetings they organized for us.

Now that my dreams are coming into reality, I have thought of means to also impact the lives of others who are also in need. I deem it a great pleasure to be supporting my community on the basis of helping other children who are climbing the academic ladder by offering a free class for those who would be of need. I also plan of organizing a seminar on principles of academic excellence in my local church for people to realize the need to excel academically.

With my current program of study, I also want to work hard and bring out many forms of producing cheap, reliable and pollution free electrical energy. Ghana, my country has a lot of raw materials and it is my plan that I help build sophisticated machines to help the processing of our raw materials.

I really appreciate Educational Pathways International for the light they have shown me. My visions and dreams would have always been in the dreamland but today, because of the sponsorship of EPI, they are coming into reality. May the Almighty God bless you, multiply your income and enlarge your territory.

My name is Abdul Baak Braimah. I am a third year student offering BSc. Biochemistry at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Kumasi, Ghana. I am a proud beneficiary of Educational Pathways International Scholarship (EPI). This scholarship has been of great benefit to me.
At first I had to engage myself in petty business before I could afford my academic fees. Even after managing to provide my academic fees, other basic needs such as accommodation, food, clothing and academic materials was a major challenge. I had to work whiles school was in session. This was preventing me from concentrating on my studies and I was not stable and comfortable in campus which was greatly affecting my academic performance.
Educational Pathways International (EPI) has offered me a full scholarship that covers my tuition and residential fees, academic materials and other basic needs. This has made my stay on campus very comfortable and to have full concentration on my studies without bothering about any financial problems. This has in turn resulted in tremendous improvement in my studies.
Growing up, I used to love science and admired people who apply scientific knowledge and skills to produce novel products into the system and this ignited my interest to offer BSc. Biochemistry at the tertiary level. Thanks to the Educational Pathways International scholarship, my dream of becoming an Industrial Biochemist is being realized. Even during this Covid-19 pandemic era where teaching and learning were carried out online, without EPI it wouldn’t have been possible for me to take part since I wouldn’t have been possessing the internet accessing devices such as laptops and smart mobile phones.
Finally, I would like to say a very big thank you to the Educational Pathways International for their kind support and the opportunity that they have given me to pursue my undergraduate degree in a financially stable conditions. Without their assistance, it would have been very difficult for me to go through my undergraduate education. May God richly bless all the executives, workers and donors of the Educational Pathways International scholarship who are working tirelessly and contributing to bring hope to the needy ones and putting smiles on our faces. Long live Educational Pathways International (EPI).

My name is Marfo Edmond, a final year student of the University of Ghana pursuing a BSc degree in Medical Laboratory Science.
Educational Pathways International (EPI) has impacted positively in my life in so many ways but the foremost amongst them is the financial support I have been receiving. Anxieties over how to support myself through the university plagued me throughout my first year. The times that were occupied with worries became free after I was awarded the scholarship. I could now use the time to learn and engage in fruitful activities. Thanks to EPI, I have an assured security of completing school.
Besides the financial support, I have also been fortunate enough to receive life skills development training from our Prrogram Director, Aunty Eunice as well as the opportunity to socially bond with other beneficiaries within the university on once every month. This has afforded me some basic life skills such as emotional intelligence, how to relate with people from different backgrounds and believes and how to manage one’s time efficiently.
I have had a smooth ride through the years in school until COVID-19 befell us in the second semester of my third year. For a while, I experienced what looked to me like a pause. There was no clear direction on what to do or how the semester was going to end because the government had shut down schools to contain the spread of the COVID-19 disease. We spent ten months in the house and although I had missed the physical bond with my friends, we soon adjusted and connected through virtual platforms. Class sessions were held online and although it was challenging at first, I soon adapted to it and excelled greatly in the online exams that was held for that particular semester.
I have always been fascinated by the genes and the idea of working in the laboratory. These two passions fueled my interest in the current program I am pursuing in school. After my first degree, I have the plans of taking up a Master’s degree program in Molecular Biology all in hopes that I may become a Geneticist someday in the future.
As a social responsibility, I’d like to become a science educator for the young and upcoming youth in Ghana, in the footsteps of the American Science populist, Carl Sagan, I’d like to ignite the passions for science in the young ones.
To the sponsors and staff of EPI who have selflessly committed themselves to see me through my education and help me make it in life, I say thank you and the only way I can truly show my appreciation is to commit myself to studies and become what I want to be.

My name is Edmond Marfo a third year student at the University of Ghana. My love for health biology is something that has been with me for as long as I can remember. This informed my decision to take general science as a programme in high school which I successfully completed in 2014. My plan to continue my studies right after high school was however stalled due to my family’s finances. The income of my mother’s trade could barely sustain us so topping it with undergraduate education in Ghana’s premiere university was impossible then. As a result, I took three gap years to work and gather some money for undergraduate studies. In (July) 2017, I received an admission offer from the University of Ghana to pursue Medical Laboratory Sciences, a programme I really loved. Although I had received good news, I could only wonder how my family could foot the tuition fees for the four-year programme, cater for accommodation and money for upkeep.
I started my tertiary education in September 2017. The first fees were catered for by the savings I had and some loans my family obtained. The first semester was really tough as I struggled to settle subsequent bills and this made me anxious and affected my academics. So, when I saw the Educational Pathways International (EPI) Scholarship advertisement and applied, I was elated when I got accepted. I now get to enjoy a comprehensive scholarship for my university education. This has lessened my burden and afforded me the chance to expend my energy on achieving my goals.
Growing up in an area riddled with infections and other diseases where several of these conditions go undiagnosed or misdiagnosed due to high patronage of unlicensed herbalists, I saw first-hand the essence of modern laboratory logistics and techniques in quality healthcare delivery. With proper training in medical laboratory sciences, the diagnosis of infections becomes possible and this improves our chances in the fight against diseases. This is why I opted to pursue Medical Laboratory Science as a pivotal point in my career. This academic training coupled with the workshops and meetings by EPI that target professional development is the very foundation of my career path and will no doubt make me an excellent scientist.
After undergraduate studies, I plan on pursuing a master’s degree in molecular genetics. I will explore both local and international opportunities for postgraduate studies after graduation. As a developing country, Ghana is poorly represented in the arena of molecular genetics. With world class training, I will add up to the existing human resource to bolster our strength in combating diseases. I have also developed interest in science communication. I strongly believe science is our best shot at fighting the myriad problems humanity faces. I will harness social media platforms to educate people on matters of science especially on health-related issues.
All these would not have been probable had it not been for the generosity and vision of EPI. The assistance from EPI is going a long way to make my dreams and aspirations materialise. I am grateful to EPI without whom my hopes and dreams would have been far behind. I am glad I am part of this great family.

My name is Sarah Afari-Baidoo. I am a 4th year Doctor of Pharmacy student at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology.
I was awarded a comprehensive scholarship from Educational Pathways International (EPI) in October 2019, and two years down the line, it has been very remarkable. Not only has EPI provided me with adequate financial support to pursue my dreams, it has also given me the sense of family and belonging.
School activities for the second semester was going on smoothly from January 2020, unfortunately, in March 2020 we were asked to go home due to the COVID 19 outbreak. This indeed disrupted not only academic life but both social and economic standings. The still checked Program Director checked on us frequently and admonished us to observe all the safety protocols. She further encouraged us to also educate others in our communities on the need to adhere to these protocols.
The COVID 19 period was indeed an interesting one for me because, I was able to learn outside the normal classroom setting. With time I became more conversant with the online meeting platforms, taking online exams and many other online academic activities.
I chose to offer Doctor of Pharmacy because of my desire to help the human race. The role of the Pharmacist in society is usually misconstrued by most people as a person who only sells drugs. However a 6-year training in the field equips one with the ability to help the medical team in optimizing patient centered care, it also provides the individual with knowledge in drug formulation and production, marketing and its recommendation.
After school, I would like to delve into all the fields of Pharmacy if given the chance to. However, the one of greatest interest to me is the clinical pharmacy sector, as it will help me interact more with the patients and thus help me achieve my goal of directly being involved in providing good health care for patients.
With that being said, I would want to use this opportunity to thank the entire EPI team for their dedication towards our growth and development as beneficiaries of this wonderful scholarship scheme.

I am Oscar Awindenaba Akanyeh, a final year student of the University of Ghana, Legon studying Economics and Insurance. Being a beneficiary of Educational Pathways International (EPI), I may say it’s a divine arrangement. EPI has made tremendous impact on my life. The financial support helps me to cater for all my academic and other needs on campus. This offers me the peace of mind and that improves my academic performance on regular basis. The target of maintaining a very good grade motivates me to work harder for academic success and this is transforming my life significantly. The various lessons given us make my University education complete. Even some of those lessons appear in our examination and that is mostly beneficial. Those lessons also guide us as to how to position ourselves strategically for a successful life after school. Some of those lessons include, goal setting, leadership skills, skills needed for the job market, effective CV writing and many more.

I would want to be an Insurance Practioneer and an Economist. The reason why I chose the programme that I am reading is because of who I want to be, the career stated above. And the reason why I chose such a career is that, Economics could be viewed as the bedrock of a country's development. Economics makes us understand that we are naturally not satisfied with our wants in the sense that resources are limited in supply as against our insatiable wants and desires. Economics therefore show us the best way possible to use these limited resources to meet our unlimited wants. This will possibly speed up the development of a country and I will like to be a part of this community of great thinkers.

Insurance on the other hand, and in its simplest form, is a monetary arrangement where a risk is transferred to another part for a fee. Most people are ignorant of this fact therefore retain a risk when retention might not possibly be the right technique to handle such risk. I want to be part of that community that educate people on how to identify a particular risk and the best way possible to deal with it. If risk is properly handled, the financial burden of the individual is eased and this to a larger extent reduces the adverse financial impact on the nation. That is who I want to be and that is what I want to do for the rest of my years on earth, despite the fact that there are so many things I would like to do for my community and mother Ghana at large.

But so long as good things are in exhaustive, I will like to find a way of making education interesting among students in the basic level. I have realised that basic students in the northern part of Ghana are gradually losing interest in education and that is not good for their community and the country. I will also avail myself in person and in financial support if possible when there is the need to embark on any developmental project in my community.

I will also make policy decisions which may be necessary for the growth of the Ghanaian economy. I will remain resolute to the needs of mother Ghana and expose any kind of evil behavior in the nation including corruption. I would therefore like to express my profound gratitude to the benefactors of the Educational Pathways International for setting a firm and strong foundation for me for a better future. I must end by saying that I will work so hard to ensure that all the resources expended on me as well as the efforts put in place to make me a better person are not wasted.

Thank you.

I am Oscar Awindenaba Akanyeh, a level 200 bachelor's of arts in Economics and Insurance student of the university of Ghana-Legon.
     I am a beneficiary of the Educational Pathways International(EPI) scholarship program.  I would like to deliberate on why I have chosen the course I am currently studying, how EpI is moulding me towards achieving academic success and goals and who I will be after school as well as what I would do for Mother Ghana and my community. 
    Firstly, There are bound to be scarcity of resources in every human society relative to wants and that there is an opportunity cost to every activity undertaken by humans. Economics therefore teaches us on how best we can use our limited resources to satisfy the unlimited wants. It therefore equips us with knowledge on how best and efficient to use our unlimited resources and which activity to undertake in order to derive the highest possible benefit. In this same human society, there are bound to be uncertainties some of which may have devastating effects. Through my study of Insurance, I would gain more knowledge to be able to appreciate the course, and to help people understand and also appreciate the need to make provisions for supervening events which may cause serious damages through an Insurance policy so that they would be indemnified in case of any loss.
    I have ,therefore, chosen the course because I take interest in them and that there are available job opportunities.
    Educational Pathways International(EPI) has offered me financial support.  EPI, pays my tuition fees, accommodation and feeding fees. This reduces the stress of having to worry about where my tuition fees as well as my accommodation and feeding fees would come from. It has also reduced the stress of having to come from home to school to have lectures. This support gives me freedom of mind to study and this has gradually improved my academic performance.
  EPI organized series of lessons apart from the normal lectures to take us through the practical aspect of life. Some of  these lessons include, report writing, entrepreneurship, top five social skills employers need. It is our goals that we get employed in our respective fields of study, and these lessons expose me to real employment indicators.
  We are also required to maintain a minimum of second class upper in order to maintain the scholarship through out our degree program. This keeps us alert and makes us set high targets for ourselves. By so achieving this, I would also in a way become the economist and Insurance policy analyst I so desire to be.
With all these benefits, I would like to congratulate, in a special way, the benefactors of Educational Pathways International for their generosity. I would also strive to be academically successful so that their sacrifices are not wasted. From this examplery life so exhibited by the benefactors of EPI, I would not hold back my support from that poor Ghanaian child who cannot  go to school because of lack of money as far as my ability may allow me.
Thank you.

My name is Haruna Abdul-Jalilu, a final year BSc. Pharmacy student of the University of Ghana. Having being on Educational Pathways International (EPI) scholarship for the last four years I can but only say it has always been a life-changing opportunity. I initially had my fears about getting rejected because from the village where I grew up and schooled we were always told we stand no chance at such opportunities if we knew no one. However, with encouragement from my mother and brothers, I explored and applied to Educational Pathways International (EPI) and after a rigorous, entirely transparent and unbiased selection process, I was one of the lucky few who was awarded a comprehensive scholarship. It was a dream-come-true for me.
Ever since I was taken into EPI family I have never for once felt that I am far away from home since EPl has made school home for us. At EPI, we are not just assisted financially but academically, socially and emotionally. We have been constituted into a big family of young individuals working to make the world around us a better place. Our Program Director has been a mother to all of us in diverse ways. Despite her very busy schedule around all 3 universities within EPI’s enclaves, she has always made time to be with us collectively and individually. This made the most impact on me during the covid-19 pandemic when we had to learn from home. Our Program Director and other beneficiaries called and sent messages regularly to make sure everything was alright and that I was keeping safe at home. At such uncertain times I could not have asked for more from anyone.
EPI made sure I dreamt and lived my dreams again at a time I could feel things falling apart. My hopes have been reestablished and goals rekindled and I will do anything within my power to make sure more children get the help they need wherever they are in my country and probably beyond. I want to be able to reach out to the brilliant and financially challenged children wherever they are. I want to be hope to the hopeless, help to the helpless, a smile on the face of the sad and a propelling force to the depressed. I simply want to be that reason no one ever comes close to giving up on their dreams.
Coupled with the above, I have also made a firm resolve to be one of the outstanding voices of health in Africa and beyond, my key goal being to reduce the number of preventable deaths in my community, Ghana, Africa and the world at large by a great percentage. The coming of covid-19 has poised me to put myself in such a position that, together with other like-minded people, we could one day foresee the next pandemic and prevent it. This I believe would be one of the best conceivable ways I can render my service to humanity.
Under the auspices of EPI, I have been able to successfully complete 5 internships with hospitals, pharmaceutical companies and community pharmacies during the vacations and that has kept me ahead in the clinical and industrial practice. During the pandemic when I could not travel to or acquire an internship letter from the school, I quickly got in touch with our Director and in less than a week, I had got to be an intern at a teaching hospital. This kept me busy for the two extra months I stayed at home after our online examinations. As I write now, I have secured a two months internship spot with a reputable community pharmacy and it has been fun and educative so far serving as a first point of contact to several patients. It gives me a priceless opportunity to learn, unlearn and relearn a lot in preparations for my professional exams and work life ahead. It’s always all fun and memorable being a part of this family.
In conclusion, I thank the Benefactors, Donors of Educational Pathways International, the Program Director, staff of the Students Financial Aid Office at University of Ghana and everybody working for the sustenance of this great course. You have all in diverse ways been instrumental in making living testimonies out of hopeless situations for brilliant and financially challenged Ghanaian students.

I am Haruna Abdul-Jalilu, a third year BSc. Pharmacy student at the University of Ghana. Upon getting admission into the University Of Ghana after a successful completion of Senior High School with excellent results, my education was greatly threatened because of a lack of finance. My parents are old and so are literally living from hand to mouth from the peasant farming they are into. I therefore had to wait until they were able to raise money for my school fees or till a Good Samaritan came by and helped me out. This however did not stop the “desperate me” from exploring other avenues to further my education. Fortunately, I came across the Educational Pathways International (EPI) scholarship and without hesitation I applied and after competitive interviews I was awarded the scholarship. Since then it has always been one memorable experience after the other with this family.
First of all this family completely turned my life around for the better. In giving me a comprehensive scholarship, my parents were relieved of the burden of having to toil and borrow to fund my education. I must also add that it was under this life changing scholarship program that I got to own my first ever laptop computer. I no longer have to depend on friends to have my assignments typed or to do research on the internet. The scholarship also enabled me to pay for my accommodation in one of the best halls of residence on campus and that has greatly relieved me of the headache of having to travel several kilometers to school and back.
Moreover, ever since I was taken into the family I have never for once felt I was hundreds of kilometers away from home since EPl has made school home for us. At EPI, we are not just assisted financially but academically, socially and emotionally. Our Program Director has been a mother to all of us in so many different ways. Despite her very busy schedule, she has always made time to be with us collectively and individually. We have been constituted into a big family of young individuals working to make the world around us a better place.
With EPI, my future rests on solid grounds and I intend making the best of this invaluable opportunity. My hopes have been reestablished and goals rekindled and I will do anything within my power to make sure many more children get the help they need wherever they are in my country and probably beyond. I want to be able to reach out to the brilliant but financially challenged child wherever they are. I want to be hope to the hopeless, help to the helpless, a smile on the face of the sad and a propelling force to the depressed.

Under the auspices of EPI, I have started internships with hospitals, pharmaceutical companies and community pharmacies during the vacations and that has kept me ahead in the clinical practice. My key goal in life has always been to put myself in the best position to serve humanity in the best way possible and every step I take each day is geared towards achieving that goal.
In conclusion, I thank the Benefactors, Donors of Educational Pathways International, the Program Director, staff of the Students Financial Aid Office at University of Ghana and everybody working for the sustenance of this great course.

My name is Francis Okyere. I am a third-year medical student at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Ghana.
Not so long ago, I used to be worried by the thought of not being able to complete school and hence unable to achieve my goals due to financial challenges from my family. It was one of my greatest fears until my attention was drawn to an announcement made by the above-mentioned school, of a scholarship opportunity from Educational Pathways International (EPI) for brilliant and needy students. I applied in September 2019 and fortunately I was granted a full scholarship, in October 2019, to continue with my untiring studies without having to worry about the financial needs.
Now, I have a true sense of peace – an inner peace, and utmost concentration on my academics and I literally have fun studying! I have also been more inspired in my field of study. I chose to do medicine because I just cannot see myself doing any other thing or job. Medicine itself is an inspiration to me: hearing the word ‘medicine’, seeing patients getting well, seeing anatomical diagrams, hearing the name of drugs, and even the smell of a hospital! I am literally in love with medicine. After my 6-year medical schooling, I will proceed to have a 2-year housemanship here in Ghana after which I intend furthering my education to specialise as a Neurosurgeon.
A concentrated mind, they say, cannot be distracted. I believe in this, and I owe it to EPI. I had utmost concentration on my studies until we all had a temporary distraction from the pandemic. But that notwithstanding, appropriate measures have been put in place by the appropriate authorities and now we are back to school, fully energised, and passionate about our studies. The pandemic negatively affected our country economically so things were tough for most parents with the resumption of school because of the payment of fees of their wards. But once again, thanks to EPI, parents of beneficiaries of EPI had no such worries and therefore we also had peace coming back to school. Returning back to school, we’ve met our mates at school who encourage and bring out the best in us once again and we’re happy to be in their company once more.
I am so grateful to Educational Pathways International for such a great honour. ‘Thank you’ are two small words but have a deeper meaning. I want to seize this opportunity to say ‘Thank you’ to EPI and long live this family!

My name is Francis Okyere. I am a second year Medical student at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Ghana.

More often than not I used to be ‘haunted’ by the thought of not being able to complete school and hence unable to achieve my goals because of financial constraint. It was one of my greatest fears until I heard the above-mentioned school make an announcement of a scholarship opportunity from Educational Pathways International (EPI) to brilliant and needy students. I had not yet applied, I had not yet been granted scholarship, but I could feel a part of this ‘haunt’ was over because the mere fact that some people somewhere were seeking for brilliant and needy students like me to support was encouraging and inspiring. I applied in September 2019 and fortunately I was granted the opportunity of a full scholarship, in October 2019, to continue with my untiring studies without having to worry about the financial needs.

Now, I feel a true sense of peace – an inner peace, and utmost concentration on my academics and I literally have fun studying! I have also been more inspired in my field of study. I chose to do Medicine because I just cannot see myself doing any other thing. Medicine itself is an inspiration to me. Hearing the word ‘medicine’, seeing patients, seeing anatomical diagrams, hearing the name of drugs, and even the smell of a hospital! I am literally in love with Medicine. After my 6-year medical training, I will proceed to have a 2-year housemanship here in Ghana after which I intend furthering my education to specialise as a Neurosurgeon.

In my short period of being with the EPI family, we have had one general meeting and through this meeting, I have learnt the basic principles I need to know in writing a curriculum vitae. I am very hopeful I will learn great new skills during our upcoming general meetings when school resumes after its temporary closure and also meet and interact with EPI family because they are very disciplined, focused, and provide a sense of belonging. I simply feel at home with other EPI beneficiaries. EPI is indeed a family!

I am so grateful to Educational Pathways International for such a great honour. ‘Thank you’ are two small words but have a deeper meaning. I want to seize this opportunity to say ‘Thank you’ to EPI and long live this family!

My name is Samuel Kwarteng. I am a second year Medical Laboratory student at Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Ghana. My first year with Educational Pathways International (EPI), has been excitement and transformational. As a recipient of the 2019/2020 EPI scholarship, I want to say thank you for awarding me this scholarship. Growing up in a less privileged community has not only offered financial and academic challenges but has helped me realize the value of college education. I am very excited and grateful to be a part of this family.

Since I joined EPI, I have gone through a much needed transition not only in my academics but personal and social lives as well. Attaining this scholarship proved to be an essential aspect to my studies which was evident in the grades I had for my first year. I was able to focus and align myself with my set goals. Through meetings chaired by our Program Director, I have been able to acquire knowledge and skills that will shape my life whiles at school and also in the corporate world.

2020 turned out to be a trying period for students and the world at large. Challenging as it was, there was a silver lining. Most of us got the chance to use virtual class platforms for the first time which was quite the experience. Much can be said about our cherished Program Director Auntie Eunice, who has been such a motherly figure to us. Her kind and empathetic words really motivated and kept us going when difficulty and challenges arose.

EPI has opened a door and the prospect of a brighter future making it possible for me to rise to the top and effect the change in my community. Organizations like EPI makes life brighter for us and I can only hope that one day, I would be in a position to bring a smile to another needy student. I cannot express my gratitude enough to the benefactors of EPI for giving students like myself a lifeline to strive for academic excellence. Thank God for EPI.

My name is Samuel Kwarteng. I am a first year Medical Laboratory student at Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Ghana. My first year with Educational Pathways International (EPI), although short, has been nothing short of excitement and transformation. As a recipient of the 2019-2020 EPI scholarship, I want to say thank you for awarding me this scholarship. Growing up in a less privileged community has not only offered financial and academic challenges but has helped me realize the value of college education. I was very excited to learn that I have been selected for this prestigious scholarship. I am very appreciative of your support of my education.
Since I joined EPI, I have gone through a much needed transition not only in my academics but personal and social lives as well. Attaining this scholarship proved to be an essential cog to my studies which was evident in the grades I had for my first semester - I was able to focus and align myself with my set goals. General meetings chaired by our Program Director, Auntie Eunice, also gave me an opportunity to meet and interact with other beneficiaries. It made me see EPI not as an organization but a family which I am very proud and honored to be a part of. These meetings also afforded me the platform to participate in workshops. These workshops have really taught me a lot.
My choice to pursue a career in the healthcare stems from my desire to have a significant impact on the lives of others; and it does not get any better than saving or assisting to save someone’s life. A career in the Medical Laboratory Sciences would greatly help me fulfill this desire. I am also driven by the fascinating work of a laboratory scientist. Medical Laboratory Science provides clues that are key in the diagnosis and treatment of disease or injury, and laboratory professionals are the detectives of the health care world. After school, I want to proceed and undertake one year mandatory national service. After the service, I hope to secure a job as a Medical Laboratory Scientist in any recognized health institution, amidst making plans to further my education. I am currently undertaking an ongoing collaborative research into neglected tropical diseases which I hope to complete upon my graduation and my findings playing a vital tool in the fight against these diseases which are mostly prevalent in the rural communities of which I am a part of. As part of a way of giving back to my community, I plan to organize health screening exercises to assist in the early detection of health anomalies; something that is currently lacking in my community. Creating awareness of these neglected diseases and educating the people on the precautionary and preventive measures to avoid them is my way of giving back to my community which I intend to continue after my education.
EPI has opened a door and the prospect of a brighter future for me and will play a key role in shaping me into a successful person in future. Organizations like EPI make life brighter for us and I can only hope that one day, I will also be in a position to bring a smile to another needy student. I cannot express my gratitude enough, and I want you to know that your generous support will see me achieve my dreams.

Educational Pathways International (EPI) scholarship program has been a really life changing experience for me. I entered the university with no hope of financial support to continue funding my education. Though a brilliant student, no individual or scholarship program had come to my aid. Out of the blue, EPI scholarship programme came to my rescue and has been my backbone since.
My name is Nelson Kofi Peprah. A first year Doctor of Pharmacy at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Kumasi, Ghana. The periodic meetings held at the beginning and end of each semester of the academic year have been helpful a lot. I have come into contact with a number of colleague beneficiaries also offering the Doctor of Pharmacy program and are willing to help me with my studies. I have been able to extend a helping hand to others with regards to their studies. I am no longer the “island” people saw me, all thanks to EPI. I feel more connected and more than ready to give back to society.
I hope to grow into one of the top pharmacists in the world, a few years to come. I will be one who will be willing to assist others the same way this scholarship program is assisting me. I intend to provide the elderly in my community with free and quality healthcare in the future. With help from EPI, I hope to realise all these goals in order to contribute to national development.
A new semester is here with all its stressful activities but I hope to emerge victorious by the Grace of God and continue benefiting from the scholarship programme. I am grateful to the scholarship program for this great opportunity and a big thank you for your great deed of financially supporting my education.

My name is Justin Andaarah Kono. Doctor of Medical Laboratory Science student at the University for Development Studies, Tamale. I am in my 5th year. My experience in Educational Pathways International (EPI), the last four years has been very tremendous, exciting and worth sharing. As someone who has keenly followed the procedures followed to award local scholarships in Ghana, I actually did not believe there could be any such scholarship around the country that still followed its principles, executed them diligently and made sure that the right people had the support that they provided, thus fulfilling their primary interest of supporting brilliant and needy in their university education.

Throughout this period that I have been a scholar of EPI, financial assistance has been very consistent including mentoring. I have benefited from the guidance and advices EPI gives not just for studies but on social, financial and religious aspects of my student life apart from the consistent yearly financial assistance. Even in this time of a global pandemic, Educational Pathways International has stayed true to its commitment of financial support and students’ welfare. This is an indication that EPI is an institution with very solid foundation.

Due to the pandemic and lockdowns, we stayed very long at home. We resorted to the use of the internet for lectures and other engagements with our Lecturers. This gave me a firsthand exposure and experience to online meetings and discussions, online lectures and online presentations. I also learnt to use online facilities and materials for research purposes and to study on my own. Building on this exposure, I intend to pursue some online courses from universities abroad.

During that time, I also had the time to think through problems in my community and try to come up with solutions to these problems. I identified a problem in the poultry sector in Ghana and also proceeded to propose a solution to this problem. This proposal landed me as one of the finalists of the VC’s business award, a maiden business pitching competition organized by the Business Innovation and Incubation Center of the University for Development Studies. This is a competition where students with brilliant business ideas compete for a sum of money to start those businesses. Even though I did not win, I learnt a lot from the competition. I learnt how to write standard business proposals, the right way to pitch ideas knowing the essentials. Through the competition, I also had the chance to meet many business men and women from whom I can get mentorship as far as business idea development is concerned. I am currently in the incubation program instituted by the center.
Based on encouragement from the mentorship program to be versatile, I have also discovered I am a talented musician. I have recorded a number of songs within this period. My friends like to listen to them.

I have personally encouraged a lot of people to seek this opportunity that I have, provided they are eligible and meet the requirements.

I am really grateful to the donors of Educational Pathways International and all who make or run this institution. Educational Pathways International fans into flames our firing spirits of change in our communities, lightens our educational way, restores our lost hopes and makes our dreams a possible reality. Thank you.

When I sit back to reminisce, I am contented with how far I have come in my education. Back in the days I never imagined myself at a level like this in education because of hardship and inability to afford the fees of any tertiary institution in my country. Even more contented do I become when I recount how enjoyable the journey has been so far. I am Justin, Kono Andaarah, a fourth year Doctor of Medical Laboratory Science student in the University for Development Studies, Ghana.
I have been a dreamer and well-wisher of my community. I wanted to see my community enjoy the best of health care one day and I had thought of being the pioneer in bringing that day to the community. Though gloomy was the way when I was due for tertiary education, it all has been the intervention of Educational Pathways International (EPI). Educational Pathways International gave me a reason to smile at a time I could only grieve the apparent helplessness of my education.
Educational Pathways International gives me financial assistance and it does not end there. I am mentored, encouraged and guided in my academic activities and my whole campus life. Educational Pathways International also gives me extracurricular education that will help me prepare adequately for my career and social life. I see my dreams, they are still lit. Thanks to Educational Pathways International and its donors.

One of the valuable things in this world is opportunity, because sometimes all that takes for someone to be successful is a chance to do so. Therefore, I deem this scholarship from Educational Pathways International (EPI) as a great opportunity for me to pursue my tertiary education.

My name is Kelly Carl Abakah Blankson, a second year student offering Geological Engineering at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) in Ghana. I am privileged and blessed to be a beneficiary of this great scholarship programme because, I believe my academic and career goals are now not far from being achieved. Previously, I had fears of not being able to complete my tertiary education which I needed to propel me to achieve my academic and career goals because I was financially handicapped but as of now, I am of a strong conviction that I will achieve my goals and I owe all this to Educational Pathways International for their tremendous support.

The prevalence of illegal mining and water pollution activities in Ghana instilled within me the passion to help fight this social problem. Therefore, I decided to pursue Geological Engineering as my undergraduate programme at the university. I want to be a Hydrogeologist and Geophysicist so I intend to acquire my Masters and Doctorate degrees in Hydrogeology and Geophysics. I believe that my knowledge in these aspects of engineering will put me in a very good position to help in solving the water pollution problem in my community and country.

The Covid-19 pandemic hampered the academic activities of the educational institutions in the country from preschool to the tertiary level. During the long break, online lectures and online examinations was the new method continuing with our education, students had to cope with the situation despite it being disturbing and hectic sometimes. Also the resumption of schools after the long break due to the Covid-19 was also a good experience as students were able to get back to the normal way of teaching and learning in-person which is also conducive for better academic works. The situation created by the Covid-19 did not derail me from focusing on my studies and goals I intend to achieve.

Finally, I would like to express my utmost appreciation to Educational Pathways International for this great opportunity for me to pursue my academic and career goals and I intend to utilize this opportunity very well to make me a skilled professional who has the development of his community and country in mind.

Thank you.

My name is Rose Nyarkoah Gyesi. A final year Geography major student of the University of Ghana (Legon) and a beneficiary of the Educational Pathways International (EPI) scholarship programme. My academic journey has been joyous ever since I became part of this noble family. EPI has immensely supported my academic needs and helped me to stay focused on my studies. Not only this, our interactive sections as a family have groomed me for life after school. Through our regular meetings, I have been able to attain knowledge on good time management, presentation skills, writing of curriculum vitae and setting goals in life. Unlike other organizations, we are encouraged to partake in internships during vacations so that we acquire practical skills and acquaint ourselves with the outside world. Unfortunately, our lovely meeting sections was halted because of the alarming incidence of the Covid 19 pandemic and its protocols of social distancing. But however, our online platforms have been a better alternative for our interactions with the aid of our able Program Director.

These support from EPI has heightened my interest to be a better person and impact other people positively. Also, EPI’s key contribution to my academics has helped me to be a step closer to my dream. It has always been my career goal to be a Professor in the field of Geography, thus having a bachelor’s degree is preliminary.

This discipline (Geography) involves the study of the earth physical features, its systems, the related interactions with the inhabitants within it as well as the spatial organizations. By researching in this field and grasping a better understanding of the earth phenomena, I would be able to impart not only knowledge to students but also offer rightful recommendations on the environmental hazards such as flooding, mass wasting, waste management, deforestation among others that we face in our developing societies and Ghana as a whole. Again, becoming a Geographer is a right step in direction to contribute to the spatial planning and development of the country, Ghana.

It is with a grateful heart that I say a big thank you to EPI for this great support to me and other brilliant and needy students. I say “Ayekoo” for giving us the opportunities to achieve our dreams and goals for the betterment of our communities and the country at large.

My name is Sylvester Agyapong, a final year Computer Engineering student at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Ghana. Prior to my tertiary education, I studied general science in the high school due to the interest that I had in artificial intelligence and robotics at a tender age. It became difficult for me to continue my education due to financial challenges that my parents faced. Despite this obstacle, I managed to complete high school and was awarded an admission by KNUST to study Computer Engineering, the very programme of my interest.
Upon arrival at the university, I was committed to studying very hard so as to be able to accomplish my goal of becoming a great technological entrepreneur in my country and be counted among the very best in the world. However, this was not an easy task since my parents could not afford the cost of my education. This soon became a burden on me until I was awarded a comprehensive scholarship from Educational Pathways International(EPI). They covered all my educational expenses which includes my tuition, accommodation, transportation, books and stipend. Also EPI being a community of intellectuals, it offered motivation and empowerment for me to keep on working to make my dream come true. The EPI Programme Director organized several seminars and lectures to teach us important life and industrial skills. In a word, EPI is simply life changing organization.
Last year was particularly difficult year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We were compelled to abandon the semester halfway and resume lectures through online portals. This purely online based studies became difficult for most of us as it was unchartered territory for most of us. During this difficult times EPI through its Programme Director checked up on progress we were making with online lectures and offered guidance in order to make the best out of a bad situation. EPI offered not just sponsorship but systemic guidance in order to succeed in my tertiary education and thereafter.
Upon graduation from the university and completion of my national service, I intend to start up a software and AI company with others who share the same dream as myself. Together we will work to alleviate the technological standards of Ghana and in the process improve upon the standard of living of citizens.

My name is Sylvester Agyapong, a third year Computer Engineering student at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Ghana. Prior to my tertiary education, I studied general science in high school due to the interest that I had in artificial intelligence and robotics at a tender age.

Pursuing my education became difficult when my mother who was my main sponsor got sick. Despite this obstacle, I managed to complete high school and was awarded an admission by KNUST and by God’s design I was given the very programme that I desired to read. I worked for a while for some money and with some assistance from my parents entered into the university.

Upon arrival at the university, I dedicated myself to studying very hard so as to be counted amongst the very best in my department and also in the entire school and probably the nation as a whole. My dream was to be a highly learned and experienced person in technology within my country and beyond. My interests lies especially with artificial intelligence, software engineering and robotics and I aspire to be counted among the greats like Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Elon Musk and so many more. Technological advancement in Ghana and other African countries is not the best and I aspire to someday change this trend and elevate the technological standards of this generation and posterity.

A dream that one does not work on to accomplish remain just a dream. To achieve this dream means I would have to remain in school to learn and acquire the skill necessary to make it a reality. However, this was not an easy task since I could not afford the cost of my education. My tuition, accommodation, transportation and health expenses had to be paid by myself since my parents could not offer much help. This soon became a burden on me until I was awarded a full scholarship by Educational Pathways international (EPI). They covered all my educational expenses which includes my tuition, accommodation, books and other things that I would need to have a successful education.

Also, EPI being a community of intellectuals, offered motivation and empowerment for me to keep on working to make my dream come true. I am happy to be so lucky to have found myself within this amazing family. In a word, EPI is simply life-changing. EPI did not only offer me sponsorship but a reason to work hard day and night on my dream.

Upon graduation from the university and rendering my national service, I intend to start up a software and AI company with others who share the same dream as myself. Together we will work to push our communities into the new age of technology and the nation as a whole.

My name is Sarkodee Godfred Boateng, a fourth year medical student at the University of Ghana and a beneficiary of the Educational Pathways International (EPI). Pursuing medicine has always been my dream because I have the passion to help people in that regard, to do the ‘impossible’ to sustain life and bring joy to families. I want to pursue this dream to the highest level to promote life as much as I can. As I climb higher it is my dream also, that I give back to society and help others because we rise only by helping others.
As children, we were always dared to dream big despite the myopic vision our financial status created. The journey to the attainment of one’s dream is never an easy one. It is one that requires a lot of effort, determination and financial muscle. In my quest to attain mine, EPI has been of immense importance and benefit to me. I became a beneficiary of this great organization in my first year and it gave me the financial booster I needed for the journey.
Four years with EPI has been years to remember. Not only do they provide financial support, we have scheduled meetings/seminars during which our wonderful Director, Miss Eunice Adwoa Eghan advice, guide and teach us some basic life skills. EPI has also provided me with a wonderful family of other beneficiaries, and this helps me socially. I believe EPI is a whole package.
The pandemic (CoVID-19) disrupted the educational flow during the beginning of the second semester of the 2019/2020 academic year. Lectures had to be done online and students had to adapt. The online education took away the classroom experience and physical interactions with course mates and friends but it was a new and wonderful experience. Adaptation was not easy initially but we grew into it and became perfect.
I am very grateful to be a beneficiary of Educational Pathways International for their continuous support and commitment to making us better. Indeed we have become better.
Thank you EPI.

Few years ago, I had a dream to realize. I was totally unsure of how to finance that dream but today thanks to Educational Pathways International (EPI) I am on the right path to making my dream a reality.
I am a medical student at the University of Ghana and in the third year. I have a dream of becoming a Cardiologist. I chose medicine and I want to be a Cardiologist because it has always been my dream and passion to save lives. The rate at which people die from heart diseases is alarming and I hope to add up to the work force in order to reduce the rate in my community and my country. This my dream is gradually becoming a reality with the help of the EPI.
I am very happy to have been selected as a recipient of the EPI scholarship because not only has it brought me closer to realizing my dreams but I have also been prepared for life through the advice and teachings of our Program Director. General meetings/seminars held during which some topics such as time management, public speaking, planning and leadership competencies are treated. These topics help shape our lives in anticipation to the achievement of our goals. I can confidently say that my leadership positions in school can be traced to EPI. Guidance and counselling is also given to ensure that we stay on track and make studying the ultimate goal in school.
Through EPI, I have also met other beneficiaries and we have a wonderful family. I am proud to be a member of this family.
Thank you EPI for making us better in every way possible.

My name is Gideon Anagli, a final year student of the University of Ghana Legon, studying BSc. Actuarial Science. My educational life was challenging but I never gave up. Finally, I applied for the Educational Pathways International (EPI) scholarship when I gained admission at the university and was fortunate to be selected after a couple of interviews. EPI has transformed my life in many ways since I received the scholarship award.

To begin with, EPI takes care of all my academic needs. To me, nothing can make the educational life of a student more comfortable than this. I am really grateful to EPI for this support. Furthermore, EPI is not just a scholarship scheme but a family who cares about its beneficiaries. EPI organizes seminars that teaches us lessons that are outside our classroom work. It further has a social platform created for us where we engage in interactive educative talks and discussions.

Added to that, I chose to study Actuarial Science because of my love for the study of Mathematics and its applications to solve complex problems. Studies has been great and my educational life met my expectations except when the Covid-19 pandemic set in last year. Our academic life changed completely. We resolved to online studies and writing examinations online while staying at home. To me, academic life has never been more difficult compared to this. We were being bombarded with lecture videos and slides throughout our stay at home. Timed quizzes and assignments became the order of the day. The internet data package provided by the school was not enough to undertake all the activities we were bound to take. We had to buy data to supplement what was provided. It was confusing and extremely stressful, a moment where one can easily decide to give up or defer the programme.

After the semester came to an end despite the numerous challenges that accompanied it, it was time to face being at home without any hope of resuming school. It was heartbreaking to watch the president of the Republic of Ghana on our screens extending our duration of stay at home on many occasions due to the rising number of COVID-19 cases recorded during those times. “Schools remain closed” he would say.

Despite the fact that schooling can be stressful, I missed going to school, I just knew staying at home doing nothing was not for me. I decided to take up courses online to keep me occupied. We finally resumed school after staying home for eight months. But things were never the same. My school had already made a decision to organize school in sessions. A semester was now made six weeks instead of thirteen weeks of teaching and learning in other to accommodate half of the student population in the first badge. But course contents remained the same. Some classes were organized online while some were in-person but we had to write all exams in person. This was also very challenging. One may wonder who made these decisions? Have they considered the negative impacts on student lives? Amidst all these, one thing remained certain. It was time to learn to adapt and survive.

I personally know that, in the theory of evolution, the species that survived, did not survive because of their strength but because of their ability to adapt to changing environmental conditions. And so it was time to adapt to all the new conditions in other to survive again. I am adapting to these changes and I am almost done, I am left with a semester more to complete my university education.

I intend to partake in some form of community service or volunteering after school as a form of appreciation to EPI and to my country Ghana.

Gideon K. Anagli.
Final Year,
Actuarial Science.

We would all agree that for us to succeed or reach our goals in life, we need support in one way or the other. I was facing many challenges in my educational life but continued to work hard. Finally, in my tertiary education, I applied for the Educational Pathways International (EPI) scholarship and I was fortunate to be selected after a couple of interviews. EPI has transformed my life massively in many ways since I received the award.
Firstly, EPI paid my school fees, aside that paid for my accommodation on campus, feeding and needed school materials as well. To me, nothing can make the educational life of a student better than this. I am really grateful to EPI for this gargantuan support.
Furthermore, EPI is not just a scholarship donor but a family who cares about its beneficiaries by bringing us together on social media platforms and shares essential ideas with us and aside that, organize seminars and programmes that teaches us very important things that are outside our classroom work such as, C.V writing, Report writing, Public Speaking, and many more. EPI also requires us to do internships which is a great benefit to our own career and also contributes to society.
Finally, with all these supports from EPI, I am working very hard towards my future goals to become one of the world class professional actuaries. I strongly believe that with hard work, determination, never giving up spirit, with God on my side and having EPI as a family who supports me educationally, I am on the winning side.
Thank You.

I am Frederick Gideon Owusu, a third year BSc. Medical Laboratory Science student at the University of Ghana, Legon (Accra).

As an Educational Pathways International scholarship recipient, I am so thankful for the generous people who help make dreams happen for people like me. Their gifts are truly an investment in our futures. I am the first in my family to attend High School and College. The cost of attending a college kept daunting me and for two years I was not able to gather funds for college work.

As the eldest sibling, the guilt of taking time and money away from your family to pursue education is very real. The demands on resources for a single-income family of six are seemingly endless. Receiving the EPI scholarship has literally paved the way for me to finally be able to better myself, have my dream career that I am proud of, volunteer, and help support my family. Having the scholarship has pushed me and given me the motivation to work even harder to excel in college.

Everything was okay till all of the sudden what we thought was far away, Covid-19, was in our midst. I was fortunate enough to have written most of the mid semester exams, but other departments weren't able to as the lecture halls were closed, citizens panicked, the country quickly went on a lockdown. Life quickly changed. Though things were not easy as we had to adjust to the “new normal”. But God being so good, He has seen us through those times of challenges that the whole world faced.
EPI has amazing programs to help students succeed. Some of these programs include entrepreneurship, skills corporate organisations look out for, public speaking, becoming who you want to be and many more. Having EPI helping Ghanaian students is a huge blessing!

I am beyond grateful for the donors of EPI who make these opportunities possible for me and other students. Their generosity has given me an opportunity in my life that I thought had passed me by, turning a dream into a reality. Having the financial burden of education lifted.

As an Educational Pathways International (EPI) scholarship recipient, I am so thankful for the generous people who help make dreams happen for people like me. Their gifts are truly an investment in our futures. Like few other people, I am the first in my family to attend high school and University. It took one Mathematics teacher of mine who paid for my WASSCE registration fee before I could earn a successful graduation from high school. The cost of attending the university kept daunting on me and for two years I was not able to attend the university.

As the eldest child of my parents, the guilt of taking time and money away from my financially struggling family to pursue education is very real. The demands on resources for a single-income family of six are seemingly endless. Receiving the EPI scholarship has literally paved the way for me to finally be able to better myself, pursue my education that I am proud and help support my family. Having this scholarship has pushed me and given me the motivation to work even harder to excel at school.

At a young age, I didn't understand why humans died. Because of my limited knowledge and experiences, I presumed human's death to be a sleeping sickness. However, as I witnessed my best friend deteriorate to death in primary school, I realize that death was real. As I grew up, I realized that each one of us will pass away at some point in our lives as humans. I then expanded my knowledge beyond the academic setting, by starting and engaging in a research campaign to find the possible causes of death of humans. Of the information I gathered, Cardiovascular Diseases (CVDs) was the leading cause of most deaths in the world. Helping the humanity to reduce the risk factors for this deadly disease has been my vision and that is why I chose to study Medical Laboratory Sciences because not only would I want to offer disease sensitization programs to humanity but also diagnose them when there is a need.
In order to share my EPI’s benefits to other people other than my family. I have established a foundation where I and other health scientist students volunteer on our mission of helping the good health and well-being of people.

EPI also has an amazing ‘life after school’ programs. These training programs go the extra mile to help students succeed. Some of these programs include entrepreneurship, skills corporate organisations look out for, public speaking, becoming who you want to be and many more. The EPI staff member I have come in contact with has been more than willing to help me in a way that I might need it. Having a scholarship like EPI right here in Ghana is a huge blessing!

I am beyond grateful for the donors of EPI who make these opportunities possible for me and other students. Their generosity has given me an opportunity in my life that I thought had passed me by, turning a dream into a reality. Having the financial burden of education lifted from my shoulders and that of my family’s has given me the freedom to focus on what is important.

I want to thank the donors and benefactors of Educational Pathways International for the impact that their gifts have on the lives of many students in Ghana.
Thank you.

I thank Educational Pathways International (EPI) for its philanthropic work to help unearth hidden potentials in needy and brilliant students. Educational Pathways International (EPI), a non-profitable Organisation which provides a comprehensive financial support to brilliant and needy students. EPI has impacted my life in diverse ways and made me feel congenial as a student ever since I was awarded the scholarship.

My name is Richmond Adu-Amponsah, a third year student of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), pursuing BSc. Electrical/Electronics Engineering. It has been a wonderful journey since I joined EPI in 2018. I always have the dream of becoming one of the greatest Engineers Ghana can ever produce.

After admission into the university, I realized things were going to be hard than expected. I dread the thought of achieving my dream until I became part of the noble family of EPI. I now see myself as a young man moving toward my goals.

Aside my academic goals, my great passion is to reach out to the financially challenged students, who are brilliant in my community. I want to be a person that propels people towards greatness some day. I want to be the smile on the face of a lot of people out there. Putting myself in the best position to serve humanity is my key goal in life and my whole career will be geared towards that.

I must say that being EPI beneficiary is the best thing that has ever happen to me. Even in the Covid 19 period, when students in Ghana had to stay home for a period of about nine months, EPI was still around providing tremendous financial and emotional support to its beneficiaries.

I am very appreciative to Educational Pathways International for their support towards my educational carrier. EPI has given me life transforming opportunity and is helping me to become a better person. I am really grateful.
Long live EPI !!!

I am Abiba Adams. A second year student offering Doctor of Pharmacy at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST). I had the privilege of being part of the Educational Pathways International (EPI) family in 2019. The scholarship has been of great help to me and my family. Thanks to Educational Pathways International I am enjoying a comprehensive scholarship and I have full focus on my academics and as a result I do very well academically. And this academic excellence can be seen among most Educational Pathways International beneficiaries.
EPI has helped me build myself and branded myself better due to the regular educational meetings and workshops that we are taken through. This also give us the opportunity to meet and interact with other EPI beneficiaries on campus. I call Educational Pathways International a family because we have a great Director who acts as a parent and a good friend to us all, making no one feel less than the other. There is a luncheon organized annually which I always look forward to and I know I am not the only one, every beneficiary does. I believe the main reason for the luncheon is not just to eat but to meet as a family and interact with other people who may share similar stories as ours and may have the same background as us, the important aspect is that we get to meet and interact with our Benefactors who visit us from the USA annually to share in our lives and motivate us to strive higher.
We had quite a different academic year when the spread of coronavirus kept us indoors last year and we had to adopt to the virtual way of doing things including schooling. It way quite challenging for me initially trying to adopt but now I can call myself a pro in online learning and the use of technology.
It was such a great relieve going back to school, meeting my friends again, meeting in-person for lectures which is much more interactive and fun.
EPI is helping make my dreams of becoming a Clinical Specialist Pharmacist become a reality. It is my earnest dream to set up a pharmaceutical company which will provide employment and be a source of income to the less privilege in my community.
Educational Pathways International is giving dream to the dreamless, hope to the hopeless family to those that feel alone and smiles to those that have lost their smiles.
Thank you Educational Pathways International for touching lives and may the good Lord bless you.

My name is Desmond Bantee, a second year student of Kwame Nkrumah University of Science
and Technology (KNUST), Ghana, pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Land Economy.
I live in a deprived village in the Upper West Region of Ghana, and my dream is to acquire the
requisite knowledge and skills that would enable me to help in the formulation and
implementation of policies that would improve the socio-economic wellbeing of my people
while maintaining the much-required balance between the natural and built environment.
This ignited my interest in Land Economy, an intellectually challenging programme with
excellent combination of economics, law and a sustainable balance between the natural and built
environment. This course which is relevant as it is important especially in this 21 st century of
rapidly changing situations of life would offer me a variety of skills and knowledge in different
yet crucial aspects of our society and contribute to my long-term dream of impacting my
community and country at large.
After a successful completion of the senior high school and living in the village, my chances of
succeeding became slim due to the financial constraints my family face. I thought this dream of
mine would never materialize given the financial status of my family. Thanks to Educational
Pathways International (EPI), my hopes became heightened and I could then sense my ambition
transforming into reality after I was awarded a scholarship in October, 2019 after successfully
gaining admission into a premier University in Ghana, Kwame Nkrumah University of Science
and Technology (KNUST), to pursue BSc Land Economy. EPI’s scholarship package caters for
my school fees, accommodation, books and stipends which enables me to have a free and
peaceful mind to concentrate on my academic work as well as other extra-curricular activities to
make myself, my family and EPI proud.
Aside the financial assistance that beneficiaries of Educational Pathways International receive,
we also benefit from intensive training sessions on crucial aspects of our lives to make us
wholesome graduates with the requisite skills and capabilities to make significant impact in our
communities and country at large. We attend monthly meetings every semester to be trained on
areas such as CV preparation, public speaking, effective time management and how to
adequately prepare for interviews (these are those I have benefited so far).
EPI has impacted so greatly in my life such that I have developed confidence in public speaking,
I can prepare an accurate CV and effectively manage my time. This comes from the lively and
interactive discussions during our monthly meetings to enable everyone comprehend the
concepts being taught, and how we can apply them to our daily living such that others can
emulate. EPI has really transformed the lives of many.
It is my fervent prayer that the Almighty God repays the founders, donors and sponsors of this
great family (EPI), a hundred fold in this life and a thousand fold in the hereafter. May He
continue to bless them and watch over them to keep on supporting and positively impacting the
lives of brilliant and needy students across our country Ghana and also beyond Ghana to realize
their full potential against abject poverty which would otherwise have hindered our laudable
aspirations. I will forever be grateful to EPI not only for the financial support but also for the
sense of belonging, love, care and encouragement they offer me.
Long live KNUST, long live Ghana, long live Educational Pathways International and all those who seek to preserve it for posterity.

Thank you.

My name is Desmond Bantee, a first year student of Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Ghana, studying BSc. Land Economy. After successfully completing the senior high school, living in a deprived village in the upper west region of Ghana, my passion was to be a legal practitioner, specialized in land and estate development to represent my clients at the court of law when their rights are being infringed upon regarding the use and ownership of landed property and estate development. However, my chances of succeeding became slim due to the poor financial status of my family. Considering my poor financial background, I thought my dream will never become a reality.
Thanks to Educational Pathways International (EPI) as things became better and I could then foresee my ambition coming to a reality after I was awarded a scholarship in October 2019, after gaining admission to study BSc.

Indeed, EPI has transformed the lives of many. This offers beneficiaries the skills to partake and succeed in diverse aspects of human endeavors. I can proudly say without an iota of doubt that I have developed confidence in public speaking, proper time management, team work and how to prepare an accurate Curriculum Vitae ( CV ) for my own benefit, God bless EPI.

Arhin Otoo is my name, a third year student at the University of Ghana, offering Political Science and Philosophy. I intend to read Law after my first degree to become a Lawyer.
I applied for Educational Pathways (EPI) scholarship in 2019. It was a very critical moment for me at that time due to my financial situation. I probably would have dropped out if I couldn’t find a sustainable means of finance. Fortunate for me, I was awarded the scholarship in 2019 and I am enjoying this full scholarship till I graduate from the university. I am happy to say EPI kept me in school.
As a beneficiary of EPI , I have gain the sound mind to study without the need to worry about how to take care of my fees while in school, since the scholarship finance my fees, my study materials accommodation on campus and extra cash for my upkeep. EPI scholarship offered an environment of support for me, apart from the financial support, I’ve acquired knowledge and skills through the periodic seminars we received. Unfortunately, a number of the essential programs that we were supposed to acquire last semester did not materialize due to the pandemic that forced schools to close down in Ghana. However, the economic squeeze that followed the pandemic had little impact on me because of the support I received from EPI.
I am most grateful to all the EPI team who are toiling day and night to support me and other beneficiaries. It is by your efforts that I am still in school. I now hope to graduate and accomplish my career with the enthusiasm to serve my nation and engage in such life touching projects. The world is made a better place by these efforts and I hope to touch lives too as I have been touched. Thank you EPI.

My name is Arhin A. Otoo. I am a student at University of Ghana (Legon), studying BA Political Science and Philosophy, and currently in the second year. Educational Pathways International (EPI) has been a blessing to me since I began my university education.

My primary motive as a student is to graduate with a first class degree so as to qualify for Law degree program to become a Lawyer. It is my dream to strengthen community based organisation, especially those in the rural areas with the legal skills I will acquire. In light of the increasing dependency of rural folks on government, the inadequate self-help initiatives, and sometimes the unfair treatment of deprived communities that sometimes results in exploitation due to illegal practices, I have always believed that if such communities are well organize and backed with legal experts, their conditions can be better improved.

Gaining admission to the university came with a cost that my family could not afford, and thanks to Educational Pathways International (EPI), for granting me a full scholarship.

EPI organises internal seminars for all beneficiaries to be equipped with some essential knowledge. The seminars also helped me in my academics and I also feel it is preparing me beyond school work, since some critical discussions that transpires during the seminar are loaded and informative.

At the moment EPI is my bedrock and I am very dependent on the support they offer me in school. I want to thank everyone who makes a contribution in every form for their selflessness and love they have shown through this program. It has given me an opportunity I will forever cherish and a privilege I will not take for granted. I wish there was another way I can show my appreciation to all who are keeping this scholarship program running.

I am convinced to say, it is through your goodness that some of us can't help it but to do good too. EPI is making the world a better place and I am a living testimony.

My name is Frederick Wih Asamoah, a fourth year medical student at the University for Development studies, Ghana, West Africa.

After experiencing a painful demise of my beloved grandmother as a child as a result of inadequacy of health personnel to attend to her in time, I told myself that I will become a Medical Doctor in the future in order to save others and prevent the occurrences of such circumstances in my country.

As I was growing up I found out that one of the contributing factor to the inadequacy of health personnel in my country is as a results of health personnel moving out of the country to the developed country to seek for greener pastures after they receive their training leaving their own to suffer.

With this in mind, I told myself that I would not just be a health worker but I will strive to go on top of my carrier to be able to occupy certain sensitive position where I can make decision to check some of these things in order to be of a benefit my country Ghana.

However, upon all these dreams my family was financially handicapped. life became that bad that after first year in the University I nearly dropped out. However, just when I thought it was over, God miraculously brought to me the most wonderful family I have ever met, The Educational Pathways International (EPI).

After listening to my story, my background, accessing my academics and my vision, they believed in me and the future that awaits me and granted me a full scholarship package covering: my school fees, residential fees, books and stipends.

By God’s grace, I now have food to eat, room to rest, books to read, a peace of mind and above all have relieved my family of a heavy burden.

In terms of mentorship, EPI has given us many mentorship programs from the time I joined this wonderful family. I have learnt a lot about the world outside; entrepreneurship, career guidance, financial management, helping the needy, life as a student, etc.

I have purposed that in the future, with or without support I will go out to most of our rural areas to educate people especially the youth about the purpose of education, career guidance, the importance of girl-child education, and educate people on health related issues such as good personal hygiene, etc. This I believe will keep them abreast with personal hygiene to some extent and it will positively contribute to the growth and development that we all expect as a country.

I thank EPI for completely changing my life and giving me hope, to my family and to my country at large. I pray that God blesses EPI more financially in order to keep on with their good works and bring hope to the hopeless.

Marylyn Oduro Awuah is my name, a final year BSc. Petrochemical Engineering student at Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Kumasi, Ghana and a proud Educational Pathways International (EPI) Scholarship beneficiary.
I was filled with extreme gratitude upon gaining admission into the university after my senior high school education. However, I was saddened by the fact that I may not be able to go through my tertiary education due to financial difficulty.
I had to seek for financial aid thus I applied for scholarships and was fortunate to be selected by Educational Pathways International (EPI) Scholarship the same year I gained admission to study. I am forever grateful for that. Educational Pathways International (EPI) is a nonprofit, non-governmental organization that seeks to recognize, support and empower gifted young university students from needy families by providing them with full scholarships for their university education. I have received numerous support and benefits from this scholarship since I joined and have been positively impacted in my academics, leadership skills, family life, social life, among others.

It has been my passion to do Engineering with the sole purpose of helping to create an enabling environment through science and technology growth and advancement. I opted for Petrochemical Engineering because our fast-growing global world required variety of petrochemical products for a better and more comfortable environment. Some of such products include plastics, pharmaceutical products and medicine, paints and coatings, rubbers, synthetic fibers, polyvinyl chloride (PVC), fertilizers and pesticides, detergents, dyes, clothing, cosmetics, liquified Petroleum gas (LPG) and other petroleum derived product which are of great importance to our wellbeing and comfort.

Educational Pathways International do not only provide financial aid for beneficiaries but goes the extra mile of offering advice, counsel, guidance, motivation and training through meetings/seminars organized to equip all beneficiaries, thus shaping us for academic excellence and helping us achieve our career goals as well and preparing us for the corporate world after school.

My sincere and heartfelt appreciation and gratitude goes to the executive body of EPI and the supporting bodies of this organization, who seeks to unearth the potential of brilliant and needy students. Also, I would like to appeal to able bodies and individuals to support this nonprofit organization so that more students who find themselves in financial challenges but with great intelligence and potential can also receive the help and support too.
Thank you EPI. We say Ayekoo!

My name is Edith Enyonam Salu, a final year student at the University of Ghana. I am offering BA Political Science and French.
I strongly desire to continue with the French language. This is because French is a lovely language and I would like to help the upcoming generation in this Language, to better their communication skills. This intension came as a result of how a lot of students in my society, from the lower class to the upper class do not like French so much. I would love to become the reason why the love of French will return to the pupils in my region.
After school I intend to continue with my education to at least the master's level either in the country or outside the country. Even as I think about my future I intend to help my community in the Volta Region of Ghana with portable water since some people still drink either the rained water or the water from the wells.
Educational Pathways International(EPI) Sponsorship has helped me financially, emotionally and psychologically. Growing up with a lot of visions I became stranded on the way in my first year at the university since I had no help to continue with my education as the sources of my finances were not promising. With the help of EPI’s sponsorship from second year till now, I am strengthened to believe in myself and my capabilities and to move on in life with all boldness. It was not an easy journey, but EPI's sponsorship made it possible especially financially.
I have no financial worries now. I have the free mind to develop my skills because I have the time I would have used to earn money for my studies and education to develop my skills. I am able to confidently participate in seminars and conferences at school and this is because EPI has helped to give me a stable mind.
To add to the numerous helps offered by EPI, the seminars and workshops organized by EPI has given me an opened mindset of what the job world is about, how to effectively manage my time, how to present myself to the public, time management, leadership skills, how to effectively write a CV, how to have a successful interview not leaving out how to write a good application letter, competences that employers look out for. With these lessons and many more, I'm confident anywhere I go.
I appreciate Educational Pathways International for such aids and opportunity given to its beneficiaries and the best I can do is to study hard so that in the future I could also be part of helping students as EPI has helped me this far.

My name is Abubakar Shaibu, a third year Medical Laboratory Technology student at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Kumasi, Ghana.
This is my third year as a beneficiary of Educational Pathways International (EPI) family in KNUST. My time with EPI family has had a positive impact on my social life and academics. In a world where there is a lot of depression, EPI is always ready to offer the needed counselling to students as and when the need arises, senior course mates who are also beneficiaries are available and ready to assist struggling students. General meetings offer students the opportunity to learn things not taught in lecture rooms as well as internships that enables students to learn from companies during vacations.
During the height of the covid 19 when schools were closed down and there was a global pandemic, EPI did not stop in helping students cope academically and social wise whilst adhering to the safety protocols put in place to curb the spread of this virus. Online lectures coupled with the mental toils of the pandemic made the last two academic semesters the most difficult in my educational journey. Nevertheless, EPI has been supportive with words of encouragement and supportive tuition for students facing challenges with online lectures during the time when schools were closed down and students were learning from home.
With each passing year with EPI, my dream of becoming a Biomedical Scientist and contributing my quota to the development of my country and the world looks more and more feasible. No feeling beats that feeling of satisfaction you get when you give back to the society that made you. It is the responsibility of every human being to contribute to the development of his/her society and to a larger extent the world. That is why I want to give back to the society in any way possible after school.
As a student aspiring to become a Biomedical Scientist, the vital role that Biomedical Scientists around the world are playing today in combating the current Covid-19 pandemic serves as great motivation to me.
It is my hope that, I will form part of a team of Biomedical Scientists that will combat neglected tropical diseases in my country and Africa.

I joined Educational Pathways International (EPI) family in November 2018 and since then, the scholarship scheme has been helpful to me in so many ways.
EPI family has helped improved my social and educational life. I have had the opportunity of meeting other students from diverse backgrounds and with different cultures. It has moulded me as a person/student of knowledge.

General meetings are a thing of fun and education. It has presented me with the opportunity of learning from different people and about things outside the classroom. It has enabled me to learn about the corporate world and what happens after school, what to do after school, how to fit into the competitive world outside school and how to achieve my dreams.

I had a dream of making an impact in medical diagnostic services in my locality and Ghana as a whole when I was growing up. I have never felt really close to that dream like I feel right now. Educational Pathways International scholarship has taken me a step closer to that dream. The scholarship scheme has ignited the little hope I had in me as a young man from northern Ghana. It has given me the opportunity to learn from companies/institutions at home during long vacations through internships.

No feeling beats that feeling of satisfaction you get when giving back to the society that you came from. It is a responsibility of every human to help his/her society and to a larger extent his/her mother land. That is why I want to give back to the society in any way possible after school. I intend to help make diagnostic services easily accessible and to greater extent free for the less privileged in my locality as one of my long term plans.

I want to say a big thank you to Educational Pathways International for helping my dreams come true.

Solomon Nakoja is my name, a fourth year Doctor of Medical Laboratory Science (MLSD) student at the University for Development Studies (UDS), Ghana. I am a native of a small village in the northern region of Ghana, Chamba. Coming to a higher level of education comes with expensive bills.
Educational Pathways International (EPI) sponsoring me is a unique and life changing experience, not only for me but also for my parents and siblings. I strongly believe that by empowering me through education, EPI enable me to break the cycle of poverty into which I was born.
Without the help of EPI sponsors, I would have had limited resources and poor focus. For children from more developed societies, education is something that can often be taken for granted, but for many African children like me, it is a lifelong dream. By sponsoring me through my university education, I can make these dreams a reality.
EPI has made my university education very simple and easy, they have provided me with not only financial support for my education but psychological support as well as guidance and counselling. EPI is always available, providing us with supports, training in various fields of life and extra-curricular activities. EPI provides me with parental care; always responding to my calls, listening to my problems and helping me find remedies to them. Sponsoring my education and the provision of care for me provides me a holistic education package.
My goal to serve families who do not have much access to medical assistance. My dream to establish a non-profit organization where I can create internships for medical school student would surely be successful.
EPI scholarship without doubt is one of the best non-profitable organizations sponsoring needy students like me. EPI had help me gain comfort and power over matters concerning education through the provision of financial and emotional supports. Seminars, that are usually organized to provide counselling and guidance has exceptionally been helpful.

Thank you so much for your contribution to my education. EPI has actually given me more than just an education, it has given me a family of people who support me and my dream of becoming a Research Scientist. I cannot thank you enough.

After I graduated from high school, I became certain that if I want to pursue a higher education I need to be persistent and determined to achieve my career aspiration. However, I would not be at this level in my education without the help of Educational Pathways International (EPI) Scholarship. EPI has made my university education very simple and easy, they have provided me with not only financial support for my education but psychological support as well as guidance and counselling.

Moreover, with the scholarship given to me by EPI, my parents have channeled their meagre income to cater for my other siblings and also gained the right to education. EPI has made it possible for the lives of everyone in my family to shift to its right path.

I am grateful to find an opportunity like this that EPI is offering. I am working harder, so that I can continue on my pathway to accomplishing my career goals. I want to give back to my society and my country as a whole. The first health project I want to accomplish throughout my career as a Doctor is to establish a free clinic in my community where affordable medical care and assistance can be provided regardless of the patient’s financial status, the diverse health medication, and nutritional classes to prevent the presence of diabetes or heart diseases.

The second biggest career goal that I want to accomplish is to establish a non-profit organization where I can create internships for medical students around Ghana, and allow them to travel to isolated communities in the country to provide free medical services. I also want to provide nutrition education to support the marginalized communities. This would help contribute to the physical development of children and offer a remedy to malnutrition.
Thank you.

A heart full of gratitude is what I have, regarding the Educational Pathways International (EPI) scholarship programme not just for being a beneficiary but also for its impact on me. My name is Solomon Apateba Akotiah, a sixth year medical student at the University for Development Studies -School of Medicine and Health Sciences (UDS-SMHS), Tamale, Ghana.
I have been a beneficiary of EPI scholarship at UDS since 2016 up till date. Various impactful manifestations can be seen in various aspects of my life. The scholarship has afforded me the opportunity to easily pay my school fees, accommodation charges and buy books, as well a stipend for my upkeep.
This has helped me so much in that I do not have to lose study time looking for money to settle my academic needs. Thus I have enough time and peace of mind to study effectively and efficiently. It has further lessened the financial burden on my mother. But for EPI, it would have been difficult for me to meet my educational need at the university.
Aside the financial aspect of the scholarship that I get yearly, I get to participate in a number of mentorship programs and workshops organized by EPI. In these programs we are taught various topics of academic and professional importance. I have learnt a lot from these topics.
All these benefits from EPI clearly seem to push me towards achieving my academic and career goals of maintaining good grades throughout my studies and subsequently becoming a Medical Doctor. Becoming a Medical Doctor would not only afford me the chance to cater for myself and my family, but would go a long way to help me contribute my quota to the development of my community, Ghana and the world at large.
My dreams do not end at becoming a Medical Doctor. However, becoming a Medical Doctor would serve as a stepping stone for even becoming a greater asset to this world as I would want to specialize so I can help train other Doctors while rendering health care to individuals wherever I find myself. I also aspire to serve as role model for the younger ones in my village so it can give them hope that they can be great too irrespective of where they come from.
For the continuous support from EPI, I am forever grateful. It is my hope that EPI lives long so it can serve not only me, but others who also want to go higher in their education but cannot afford financially. God bless EPI and all supporters of the Educational Pathways International dreams.

In these mentorship sessions, I get the opportunity to be taught very important extracurricular topics and these meetings afford me the chance to learn a lot from EPI and also get to interact with other beneficiaries in different fields of study.
The financial support together with the knowledge and skills I get from EPI have helped and is still helping me immensely. I am able to study more comfortably and relate well with other people. My academic performances have particularly improved over time.
I am positive that with the continuous support from EPI, I will continue to work assiduously to achieve my ambition of not just becoming a Medical Doctor, but one who will contribute immensely to improving the health of my community people and Ghana as a whole by contributing to, if not leading, health research breakthroughs in Ghana and beyond in the future.
I am and is still working to be that role model that the young folk from my community will look up to and study hard to be better persons for themselves and our society.
If I had not gotten EPI scholarship, funding my studies in Medical school up till now would have been extremely difficult if not impossible. I am therefore always grateful to Educational Pathways International for the sponsorship, I really appreciate them.
I pray and hope that EPI continues to exist and function to support us and other needy students from all over Ghana and of various programs of study in all other tertiary institutions. God bless EPI!

My name is Gabriel Edem Zeye. I am a third year BSc. Agribusiness Management student at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Kumasi Ghana.
Financing my education has been my ultimate problem from Senior High School until I became a beneficiary of Educational Pathways International (EPI) Scholarship at the tertiary level. My encounter with (EPI) has been the turning point of the financial crises in my educational life.
Educational Pathways International is a scholarship scheme that provides financial assistance to needy and brilliant students. Financing tertiary education in this part of the world is a problem for many, especially the poor and the needy. Therefore, the emergence of EPI has been the saviour for many needy and brilliant university students in the realization of their dreams.
EPI does not only provide financial support to its beneficiaries. They organize seminars to educate us on many other aspects of life that shapes our academic and social lives and also to prepare us for the corporate world.
During the covid 19 era, EPI has educated us on the various measures taken against the prevention and spread of the virus. A laptop that I bought through the financial assistance from EPI was very useful during the lockdown, it served as a source of entertainment, and the medium for online lectures, quizzes and exams that we took during the lockdown.
I am very grateful to EPI for their support towards my academic success. Growing up as a young adolescent in my community, I realized one of the major problems confronting my country is high importation of agriculture products that our resources can support in its production in our own country.
Agriculture for long, has been perceived as a work for the poor and less privileged. Taking agriculture as a business venture, and making people know that agriculture entails a lot, making it a lucrative business and producing to feed the nation are some of the reasons that made me choose BSc. Agribusiness Management as a programme of study so that I will be able to apply business and management principle in agriculture.
After school, I would like to further as an expert in the field of Agribusiness Management. In my community and the country at large, I would like to set up a non-profit organization to educate the youth to see agriculture as a life time business opportunity that can help in the development of our country and its sustainability in the future.
Finally, I would want to use this opportunity to thank Educational Pathways International for their immense contribution to my education.
God bless Educational Pathways International.
Long live Educational Pathways International.

I am Priscilla Edem Domie, a student of the University of Ghana, Legon. I am a second year student offering BSc. Biomedical Engineering. Educational Pathways International (EPI) has really helped me in various ways, not only financially but also socially and morally. Being a beneficiary of EPI doesn’t make you feel just like you belong to a group but it also makes you feel like you are a part of a family. Our leaders are friendly and we easily go to them for advice and even seek help when we find ourselves in need.
The beneficiaries meet at least once every month under the guidance of the Program Director who either educates us or invites influential people to speak to us. Some of the things I have personally learnt was how to write my CV and time management. EPI gives the beneficiaries the opportunity to take up leadership roles among ourselves so that we can become responsible and confident to take up leadership roles in the near future. Not to talk about the refreshment after each seminar held. It’s a feeling of home away from home.
For the first time, I am not stressed at how my school fees or residential fees would be paid. This is because EPI has got me covered with the comprehensive scholarship that I was awarded. This is indeed a heavy burden lifted off me and my parents. All I have to do now is to study hard and allow the teachings of this great institution pass through me and mould me into becoming a great person in future.
I have always had a keen interest in working in the hospital and I also loved maths. I didn’t know how this two could work along until I was enrolled into Biomedical Engineering. Biomedical Engineering because of my interest in Mathematics and the desire to work in the hospital field. Biomedical Engineering offers vast opportunities in developing artificial organs, building machines to aid in diagnosis, providing technical support for medical technology, training clinicians in machine use and engineering aspects of biological systems. At the end of my four year studies in Biomedical Engineering and some further education, I desire to serve my country with my acquired skills and knowledge by contributing to the success of healthcare facilities and have the opportunity to impact people’s lives around the world with advanced treatments to save lives and to improve our lifestyles.
I want to thank Educational Pathways International (EPI) for this life changing scholarship that they have awarded me.

I am Bright Asante, a third year BSc. Biochemistry student of Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Kumasi, Ghana. In October, 2019 a friend of mine informed me about a number of organizations which were giving out scholarships to brilliant but needy students. Upon going through the list of scholarships to be given out, I knew Educational Pathways International (EPI) was the right one for me. I went through the application process and by the grace of God, I was amongst the students selected to be part of the EPI family.
Initially, I did not know how my academic life in school was going to turn out, but one thing for sure was that, I was always to think about how I was going to pay my academic fees and this would have a great toll on my academics. Then came EPI. Hearing that I had become part of this great family brought a kind of joy which words cannot even accurately describe.
EPI is a family and a great one for that matter. Beneficiaries of EPI are regularly checked up on by the Director in charge to make sure we are fine in all aspects of our lives. In Educational Pathways International, beneficiaries are prepared for life on campus and for the outside world, to become better people who would fit easily into society.
Our activities were going on smoothly, then came the biggest blow to the whole world – COVID-19. Everything in the world was somehow disrupted and academic life was not left out as schools were closed down. Upon all these happenings, EPI still checked up on its beneficiaries in their various homes to make sure each one of them was doing well. If Educational Pathways International proved anything, the proof was that it really cared about the wellbeing of its beneficiaries and not just giving them relief in terms of their financial support for their university education and that is why I will always refer to EPI as a family.
May EPI continue to grow so that smiles would be put on the faces of many who are brilliant and needy as I am. Long live EPI!

My name is Bright Asante, a second year BSc. Biochemistry student in the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST, Ghana. I got to know about Educational Pathways International (EPI) through a friend of mine through a list of scholarship units he sent me. At a glance, I knew choosing EPI was the right choice I could ever make and so I took the bold step by applying. After a series of interviews, I was selected to be part of the EPI family by the grace of God.
Becoming part of the EPI family has played an important role in my life as a student because with EPI the “go-for-it” attitude has been instilled in me. I have been taught to set goals for myself in various aspects of my life, especially with respect to academics, and also gear all my efforts toward the accomplishment of the set goals. Also, with Educational Pathways International my focus is not set on the “smaller picture” which is my life as a student but on the “larger picture” which encompasses my life in and after school. This is because through EPI, I have been taken through some training which will help me in school and also in the corporate world after school. I am not anxious as to what would become of me when I leave school due to the things I have learnt and acquired during these monthly meetings and trainings that I have had the opportunity to take part in.
I have always been a person who is fascinated about nature and scientific discoveries. I found biochemistry as an avenue for satisfying this curiosity of mine by putting the knowledge gained into practice. Biochemistry helps one in better understanding of life particularly at the molecular level, that is, enzymes, amino acids, hormones, nucleic acids, and others. And this is what almost all science related programs are based on. Many groundbreaking researches in science leading to discoveries having positive impacts in people’s lives are applications of biochemistry.
It is my aim that after completing my four-year programme (BSc. Biochemistry), I would further my education in Biochemistry to obtain a master’s degree and move on to PhD which will improve my knowledge and understanding in any aspect of biochemistry so as to be an effective contributor to the development of my country.
The community in which I reside is faced with many problems ranging from health to sanitation and therefore with my knowledge in biochemistry I would be able to educate the people in my community on how to protect themselves from certain diseases and also to be people who are conscious of their sanitation. I also hope to work in a Research Institute in my country, Ghana where investigations into diseases are made so as to bring a stop to the spread of such diseases.
Educational Pathways International has done so much in my life and I want to use this opportunity to express my gratitude to the organization for the pivotal role it has played in my life, because apart from fulfilling my financial needs I have been refined in many aspects which I strongly believe will make me a better person who will contribute to the development of my community and country. God bless EPI for the great investment they are making in my life.

Being a beneficiary of the Educational Pathways International (EPI) scholarship has been of great importance and a stepping stone for me in my educational and career journey. My name is Susanna Awinson Anovunga, a third-year biochemistry Student of the University for Development Studies (UDS), Navrongo campus now CK-Tedam University of Technology and Applied Sciences (CK-T UTAS) located in the Upper East region of Ghana.
My tertiary education has been taken care of by EPI from my first year in the University. And truth be told, funding for school would otherwise have been impossible. Having lost my father and my mother just a seamstress, my siblings and I were in danger of missing out on the many advantages and opportunities brought about by education. However, EPI gave me the chance to pursue my education in the University and build myself up in many other ways.
Apart from the financial support from EPI Scholarship, we are also taken through training on various topics like leadership and personal development, entrepreneurship just to mention a few so that we can take up opportunities, offer services and gain a source of livelihood from, preparing oneself for the corporate world among others. As a beneficiary of the scholarship I am also privileged to be taken through counselling sessions and given support in courses that I face problems in so that I can perform well in our academics.
The previous academic year was a very challenging one for everyone and especially for students due to the covid 19 pandemic. However, we had periodic checkups from EPI and we were encouraged to keep calm, help in educating our societies on covid and keep doing our best as students and citizens of the country Ghana. Though faced with anxieties, the year also gave us an opportunity to learn outside the classroom, got other experiences, learn how to cope with the uncertainties of life and also allowed us to give ourselves up for service to our communities during the intense panic periods. Some activities I personally undertook during the period were sensitization of people on the pandemic and helping the younger ones to keep up their school lessons since they were all home.
I love Biochemistry. And I especially love the possibility of helping in research of various health conditions particularly in the area of genomics. My career ambition is to do health research in genomics and help bring better understanding and enlightenment to people on genetic issues and disorders. As a beneficiary of EPI and seeing how EPI has enabled me pursue my tertiary education, I am also drawn and will be an advocate of giving back to society and helping the underprivileged to also be able to develop their potentials and become assets to society. Educational Pathways International (EPI) is truly an Organization that has people at heart and helps to bring the best out of them. I am forever grateful to EPI. Thank you.

As a beneficiary of Educational Pathways International (EPI), one of my driving motives in life is giving back to society to help the needy and underprivileged and empowering myself to be of useful service to humanity.
I am Susanna Awinsogya Anovunga, a second year Biochemistry student of the University for Development Studies (UDS), Navrongo in the Upper East Region of Ghana. My university education is sponsored by Educational Pathways International (EPI). I have been on this scholarship for two years now and it has been a great opportunity and a chance to pursue my academic potentials and gain the needed insights and skills to impact society.
My desire to pursue Biochemistry and to equip myself towards my ambitions would have just remained mere desires without the financial support from EPI. This scholarship has taken the burden of seeking around for finances to settle my bills and has afforded me the calm I need to study and engage in useful extracurricular activities like leadership formations and seminars. I can now fully give my attention to my studies and attain the academic excellence I aspire to attain. With issues of financial burden taken care of, I can also partake in other non-academic activities to build myself up and be able to perform effectively wherever I find myself. Some of these activities include seminars and youth development programmes.
Aside the financial support given by EPI, we the beneficiaries are also taken through various training sessions every trimester to give us an all-round and balanced education. The training sessions takes us through various topics that are not taught in the classroom but which are needed to be able to fit into the corporate world properly. Some of the topics we are taken through include effective CV and report writing, preparing oneself for the job market, goal setting, entrepreneurship, competences that employers seek in employees and preparing for interviews, these are among the few that I have had the opportunity to participate in. This helps us to stand out and be the very best of ourselves wherever we are.
Healthy living has always been a top priority for me and a degree in Biochemistry will give me the necessary skills and techniques needed for health research. A country which has healthy people will almost certainly have high work productivity. I therefore intend to use the knowledge and skills obtained within this four-year programme to contribute to scientific health research and help improve the health wellbeing of Ghanaian citizens and the world at large. I also seek to be an inspiration to others never to give up on their ambitions and to work toward attaining them.
With this said, I will forever remain grateful to Educational Pathways International (EPI) for giving me the opportunity to continue my education and for the chance to also develop myself in all aspects to become an effective person and worker wherever I may find myself someday. EPI truly makes one to move forward and become the very best that they were meant to be.

Asana Tungteeya Alhassan is my name, an Educational Pathways International (EPI) beneficiary and a student of the University for Development Studies (UDS). I am a third year student who is offering Doctor of Medical Laboratory Science ( MLSD).

Having come this far on my educational ladder, payment of school fees and other academic levy was a challenge to me because, I belong to a polygamous family in which my father who is just a peasant farmer is the only breadwinner of the house. I gained EPI scholarship when I successfully passed the interview and other requirements.

Being a beneficiary of EPI has been the greatest thing that ever happened in my life. I was awarded a comprehensive scholarship which covers all my educational expenses at the university. This has reduced the financial burden on my parents. And my parents are able to cater for my siblings' educational needs. This has helped in my social life by reducing my family burden. EPI has not only impacted on my educational life but my social life as well. I get to socialize very well with others through our monthly meetings with the Program Director of EPI. In these meetings, we are being taught a lot of things that helps us on our campus life and also when we finish school. EPI has catered for all my educational needs so I do not worry about anything anymore and all I do with my time is to study very well to achieve my dream which is to become a Medical Laboratory Doctor

Doctor of Medical Laboratory Science which is the program pursue at the university is an allied health science. Its main objective is to diagnose and monitor the therapy of various kinds of diseases. It is for these reasons we are termed "the doctor's doctor" because medical doctors depend on the information we produce as medical laboratory doctors to be able to give appropriate prescriptions to patients. These will then lead to the treatment of patients through either pharmacotherapy or surgery. For these reasons, I decided to study no other health program other than what I am studying now. Through this, will have much role to play in the treatment of diseases.

During the outbreak of COVID-19, Medical Laboratory Scientists across the globe played a major role in identifying the virus through various research techniques. They were able to identify the various strains of the virus and vaccines are now produced for this particular virus. The mode of transmission of the virus was identified too which brought about the observation of the COVID-19 protocols During this period, all schools were shut down and I got to learn and appreciate more about the programme I am studying

In future, would like to part-take in so many researches concerning various kinds of diseases and also construct a research laboratory in my community where routine lab tests will be conducted. This will not only have a positive impact on my community but Ghana as a whole.

I will finally like to thank EPI for taking care of my educational as well as social needs. I am indeed grateful for your care and support in my struggle to become a Medical Laboratory Doctor.

I am Asana Tungteeya Alhassan, a second year Doctor of Medical Laboratory Science student at the University for Development studies, Ghana. I am a beneficiary at the Educational Pathways International (EPI).

Coming from a family of eight including my mother and father, life hasn't been easy for us. My mother being a petty trader and my father a peasant farmer, life was so unbearable. We used to go through a lot of suffering to get our daily bread and also get some of our educational needs. With our hard work from my mother's petty trading and my father's peasant farming, my family kept most of the support from this on my education since I was the eldest amongst my siblings.

With this, I studied very hard in order to achieve my goal to become a Medical Laboratory Doctor. God being so great, I was successful with my WASSCE with which I had an entry into the university. Staying in the university, my parents couldn't afford to pay my second year fees which I was supposed to pay before registering for the second year courses. I heard of a scholarship named Educational Pathways International (EPI) which I applied for and was granted the scholarship after a successful interview. The happiest day of my life was this day that I had the EPI's comprehensive scholarship.

With EPI, all my educational needs are being provided for (payment of fees, hostel fees, books and stipends as well). With the amount I get as stipends from EPI, I use it to help my siblings at home who are still at the lower levels of their education and also use part to help my mother in her petty trading. At school, I get to study very well without a disturbed mind which makes it easy for me to understand better. The suffering in my family is so minimal now and my education is going on smoothly without any disturbance. This is all thanks to EPI. I have learnt a lot from my interactions with other EPI beneficiaries in the university during our recent meetings with our Program Director. These sessions shape is to become complete students on campus and more importantly ready for the world outside and the corporate world after school. It has also motivated me to keep on going no matter how difficult the path may be.

Growing up as a child in my community, rendering service to people and also doing what make people happy have always been the best part of me. On the other hand, seeing people suffering and dying is the last thing I wish to see. But what can I do? I asked myself silently. The only answer I got to this question years back was to become a medical practitioner, hence I chose to study Doctor of Medical Laboratory Science in my tertiary education. I did this to reduce the suffering of my people and also reduce the mortality rate in my community. This will go a long way to help Ghana as a whole.

I want to thank Educational Pathways International for taking care of my educational and social needs as well. Thank you for helping me on my struggle to become a Medical Laboratory Science Doctor. Words alone can't describe how grateful I feel towards EPI. Once again, I say a very big thank you.

Sekinatu Adonpoka Karim is my name, from the Northern part of Ghana. I am a third year student pursuing Doctor of Medical Laboratory Science in the University for Development Studies (UDS), Tamale, in the Northern Region of Ghana. Growing up, a lot of medical issues in my community led to the demise of most people, this was due to lack of health personnel and health facility. So, specializing in the medical field would help prevent, treat and cure some of the diseases that led to deaths, this inspired my choice of program of study.
Biomedical science is a field that helps in the diagnosis of the various diseases. You get to appropriate the thinnest cell to giant organs. At every level under the microscope is a masterpiece of a work of art. A physician would not conclude on his/her diagnosis without confirming from a biomedical laboratory scientist. It makes you picture what goes on in our system when we consume different substances and the effects they have directly and indirectly. That is the beauty of being a biomedical laboratory scientist, above all it’s a service to humanity.
My strong desire for formal education and motivation from my family’s background has kept me going. As the only girl in my family to get this far in education is a great achievement that makes me proud of myself every day. I come from a polygamous family with my mother being the sole provider with the little income she gets from her petty trading. The small shop which made life a bit easy for us was demolished making our daily survival difficult. My father also helps out with the little he gets from cleaning and doing other manual jobs for people. Life really seemed hard at this point.
My school fees, accommodation, books, and other expenses could not be well catered for by my parents. Just when I thought of giving up my dream, Educational Pathways International (EPI), came in, gave me a comprehensive scholarship brought things in order in my life. My school fees, accommodation, studying materials even including feeding have all been taken care of by Educational Pathways International.
Now, the burden of my education has been taken off my shoulders and that of my parents. I can now study without wondering how my fees and other academic expenses will be taken care of. All I have to do right now is to study very hard, make continuous good grades and realize my dreams. Apart from the monetary support, EPI also organizes sessions where we are taught some topics that will help us in our academics presently and my work in the corporate world in the future.
I say to EPI “thank you” for making me part of this wonderful family. I am sincerely grateful for your support.

My name is Karim Adonpoka Sekinatu, a student of the University for Development Studies in the Northern Region of Ghana, pursuing Doctor of Medical Laboratory Science in my second year. Being a biomedical laboratory scientist wasn’t actually my first choice but the idea was to serve humanity. Studying a program that would help humanity is quite fulfilling. Biomedical laboratory science makes you view the word from a whole different dimension, seeing what the mere eyes can’t see by using an aided lens. You can have an opportunity to understand how the tiny things that can’t be seen are able to interact with us giant living organisms. It makes you picture what goes on in our system when we consume different substances and the effects they have directly and indirectly on us.
My desire for formal education and motivation from my family’s background kept me going. Being the only girl in my family to get this far in my education is an achievement that makes me proud of myself every day. I come from a polygamous family with my mother being the sole breadwinner with the little she gets from her petty trading. The small shop which made life a bit easy for us was demolished making our daily survival difficult. My siblings and I at times either hawk our goods or displayed them by the roadside or in the market but our trading gets cut off when it rains or security personnel clear the roads for cars. My father also helps out with the small he gets from cleaning and doing other manual jobs for people.
Life seemed hard after me and my family. My school fees, accommodation feeding and other expenses couldn’t be well catered for by my parents. Just when I thought of giving up on my dreams Educational Pathways International (EPI) came in and brought things in order in my life. My academic user fees, accommodation, studying materials even including my daily feeding have all been taken care of by Educational Pathways International (EPI).

I can now study without wondering how my fees and other academic expenses will be taken care of.

I must say that every day that goes by makes me more grateful to be a part of the Educational Pathways International(EPI) family. My excitement is no surprise to my family and to the many other beneficiaries of this scholarship programme. My name is Sharon Dufie Agyemang- Prempeh, a third year medical student of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Ghana and I have been an EPI scholarship recipient since 2018.
The support from EPI became most significant during the lockdown period. During the COVID 19 nationwide lockdown, it was the financial support from the EPI that buffered me in those adverse times. Using my scholarship funds, I was able to purchase data for my online classes, buy my stationery and cover all other educational expenses that came with the online learning format. Thus, I was able to participate fully in all my classes and obtain very good grades.
Aside the financial support I received, I also received emotional support from the EPI online platform(WhatsApp). Our Program Director, Madam Eunice as we affectionately call her, always sent out encouraging messages to us and also checked on us from time to time throughout the lockdown period. Additionally the warmth and harmony displayed in our group made the isolation of the COVID 19 lockdown less daunting and more bearable. This gave me the hope and the peace of mind I needed to know that everything was going to be alright.
If given the opportunity, I could go on and on about how wonderful the Educational Pathways International has been to my family and I but time and space would not permit me. Thus, I end on this note; that the EPI family has been a true family and will continue to have a special place in my heart. May EPI continue to grow from strength to strength!

My name is Sharon Dufie Agyemang-Prempeh and a second year Medical student at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) located at Kumasi in the Ashanti region of Ghana.

I must say that after a year with Educational Pathways International (EPI) I have seen a tremendous amount of progress in my life. Aside the financial relief EPI has granted me, EPI has also provided me with valuable professional skills through regular meetings on relevant topics.

Additionally, EPI has provided me with an avenue to interact with students from different academic and social backgrounds by organizing events such as general meetings and luncheons among beneficiaries. These interactions have helped me to improve my public speaking and networking skills. As result, I feel confident about my prospects in the job market and my holistic development as an individual.

In conclusion I am forever grateful to EPI for what they have done for my family and I. I cannot say with enough words how thankful I am to EPI for helping so many needy students like myself. I will encourage more students to apply for the EPI scholarship so that they can also enjoy all of the benefits of EPI. May God richly bless EPI.

I am Gabriel Appiah, a final year student of the University of Ghana Business School, pursuing Bachelor of Science in Administration and majoring in Accounting. I have been a beneficiary of the Educational Pathways International (EPI) scholarship programme since 2017, my first year. I emerged as one of the privileged students to be selected for the scholarship at the University of Ghana for the 2017/2018 academic year after going through a rigorous application and interview processes.

Competing for the scholarship and being enrolled in it have been a great life-changing opportunities in my life. Before joining the scholarship program, I was a very worried teenager who did not know how his tertiary education would be financed. Though I was good at writing essays, applying for the scholarship made me better at it, and the interview was my first ever, giving me the first ever experience of how interviews are done, and this experience has been great for me. Upon enrollment in the scholarship, the thrice per semester family meetings held over the years have also impacted my life academically, professionally and personally through the treatment of topics like thinking, time management, CV writing, report writing, entrepreneurship and essay writing. The yearly luncheon event brings together the wonderful members of the University of Ghana Educational Pathways International family and our amazing benefactors come all the way from the US just to see us and commune with us on a personal level. This shows how amazing Educational Pathways International is; they are not only giving away their money but they also care about the people to whom their money is given. An Amazing family!

Encountering Educational Pathways International scholarship has also been a super amazing and financial transforming event in my life. My financial background has been weak to the extent that my high school education was financed by a scholarship, and over the years, the financial status of my family had not improved. I really needed a scholarship to the extent that I spent two years searching for one until I found Educational Pathways International scholarship. Over the three years I have been a beneficiary of this scholarship, there has been no moment I had to worry about books, food and any other expenses while I am on campus. I have enjoyed a relatively sound mind to pursue my academics when it comes to finances. My family has also benefited from this scholarship, as I do not trouble them with money issues, so my parents can focus on finding money to support my siblings' education. I have also been in the position to support sometimes, thanks to Educational Pathways International.

The 3.0 GPA per semester minimum requirement of the scholarship has kept me up in my academics, and now I can proudly boast of a CGPA of 3.82 as at the beginning of my final year and I hope to improve it to a FGPA of 3.9+. The compulsory internship or volunteering requirement of the scholarship has also prepared me for the world of work by improving my people skills and increasing my network.

My academic goals are to graduate with a first class, pursue MBA with Accounting specialization in one of the top business schools in North America, and to pursue a PhD in Accounting. In addition, my career goals are to become a world class professional Accountant, a member of ACCA, a Professor, a Financial Consultant, and an Entrepreneur. It is my dream to help develop my community and beloved country, Ghana, by establishing businesses in my community and around the country to help train and employ the youth in Ghana. It is also my dream to help make Ghana the industrial hub of Africa. Educational Pathways International has given me a boost in achieving all these.

I am really grateful to everyone at Educational Pathways International whose effort, directly or indirectly, has contributed to making my dreams come true. Educational Pathways International is truly the best Nonprofit Organization ever!

I have been a beneficiary of the Educational Pathways International scholarship for three (3) years now, from my first year when I was admitted into the University of Ghana. Educational Pathways International scholarship has been a lifesaving program to me. As a student from a weak financial background, my tertiary education would have been a nightmare if I had not met Educational Pathways International scholarship program.

EPI has provided me with yearly comprehensive scholarship through and enormous financial support which covers the yearly payment of my school fees, residential fees, books and an appreciable yearly stipend for up keeping. EPI has also helped me acquire additional knowledge on Time Management, Thinking, Entrepreneurship, CV Writing, Report Writing among others through the monthly family meetings organised by the Program Director of the scholarship. I have learnt how to network as the program brings together beneficiaries from all part of the country as a big family.

The mandatory internship or volunteering requirement of the scholarship has enabled me to gain corporate experiences through the internship and volunteering program I took during the past two (2) summer vacations.

I appreciate the work of the entire Educational Pathways International team who work relentlessly to provide financial and educational support to people of weak financial backgrounds to have a sound and privileged tertiary education.

I am Edward Agyemang-Prempeh Jr., a third year Electrical/Electronic Engineering student of Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Ghana, West Africa, and a very proud beneficiary of the Educational Pathways International (EPI) scholarship programme.

During the time I have spent with EPI as a family on campus so far, I have had a very wonderful experience. The family has been so welcoming and supportive and is definitely one that I would never want to part ways with.
I want to share some of the experiences I have had with the EPI family, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown period.

Right from the time the government locked the country down up till date, I never felt the absence of the EPI family. The Program Director always kept in touch with us through the social media platform, WhatsApp and she always made sure to check up on us. The common virtual platform that we all shared as a family also helped to communicate with ourselves and this helped us to maintain the beautiful connection that we have as a united family. We motivated ourselves to study hard even in those times when it seemed as if the world would never recover back to its former self again.
There were times when the family was a pillar in my life and helped me to go through the times of frustration and uneasiness through their kind and loving words.

I’ll forever be thankful for the opportunity that has been given me to be a part of the EPI family because if not, where would I be? I thank the Almighty God for also giving me this chance to experience the greatness embedded into the members of the EPI family. I pray that EPI forever remain in a position to help a lot of people especially brilliant students in need. May God bless us all.
Thank you.

Edward Agyemang-Prempeh Jr., a second year Electrical/Electronic Engineering student of Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Ghana, West Africa, and a beneficiary of the Educational Pathways International (EPI) scholarship programme.

Being a beneficiary of the esteemed scholarship scheme for over a year now, I am proud to say I can call this Organization a family. The stakeholders involved have made sure I am groomed to be the best version of myself.

Throughout the time I've been on this scholarship, they have done their best to train me for the cooperate world. Various lessons and mentorship sessions on how to relate with others in the field of work we might find ourselves have been organized for us. They organize meetings to empower every member of the family to give our best in all that we do especially in our academic endeavours. I have been educated on very vital topics such as time management, creativity, collaboration and adaptability, all of which are meant to prepare me for the corporate world. This has helped me to realize how to see the world not only for what it is, but also for what it could become.

EPI is a great family to be with. Throughout the ups and downs we face, they have tried the best they can to support us both financially and emotionally. For that, I appreciate them a lot and I hope and pray that the Good Lord takes the whole family to greater heights.

Educational Pathways International (EPI) has been a great pillar in my life since I joined this great family in October 2019. Since I joined EPI, it has helped kept me on my toes in terms of my academics due to the requirements supposed to be attained to be part and remain a part of this family. EPI has also aided me in terms of my finances with respect to school fees, residential fees, books, and stipend for my general upkeep as compared to when I was not enrolled in this scholarship where times were extremely hard for me as a student which affected my life a lot but now due to the support of EPI, I am able to learn with a sound mind devoid of any thinking about my finances. Even though I had parents my education could not be supported by them since they are faced with financial challenges. By the grace of God, EPI showed up and awarded me a comprehensive scholarship which has made my life on campus easy and it has given me a sound mind to concentrate on my studies and get better grades required by the scholarship.

Even in times where things weren’t normal due to the COVID-19 our EPI Director occasionally checked up on us encouraging us to cope with the new online module of studies and constantly reminding us to be safe. For me just that gave me a sense of belongingness. It motivated me to study harder whiles at home even though there were challenges such as distraction with home chores, internet connectivity issues and many others. Also, EPI has equipped me with subsidiary skills through certain topics we were taught last year such as public speaking, interviews, and the requirement of internship, made me get more experience when schools were closed. I got to work with a finance department of City of Refuge Ministries which enhanced my knowledge in my field and made me handle more practical work aside what was taught at school. These, and many others have made me really appreciate EPI for the good work and support in many lives like mine.

The reason why I pursued BSc. Administration is to achieve my main goal of becoming a Chartered Accountant. It is also to help the weak feminine in the society to gain good financial grounds which helps reduce the high rate of women depending on their husbands. This will help reduce high rate of abuses suffered by some women from their husbands due to their dependence on them, which further goes to reduce poverty in the nation. Aside my dream of being a Chartered Accountant there are several job opportunities offered immediately after school which can earn me some income to take care of my parents and aid in the education of my younger sisters and to help make my family of good financial standing.

After my completion of my first degree, I will further take my professional courses to gain my Accountancy certificate which will aid my dreams of coming into fulfillment. However, I will not dedicate all my four years just for another schooling because taking these professional courses take about three to four years. I will be working alongside schooling in any company or institution that offers a job within my degree qualification being it government or private institution. Also, I stay in a community where there are a lot of children who face difficulty in education and I occasionally help them by teaching them anytime I am on vacation and it will continue even after I complete school. I know how frustrating it is to learn without any aid so I have taken it upon myself to constantly teach them and help them in whatever way I can in terms of their academics which in the long run will boost the literacy rate of the nation and help in building the nation Ghana.

Finally, I want to commend EPI for their big hearts and their good deeds in touching a lot of lives which would have been wasted due to financial difficulties. It is my desire that EPI grow to become great and ascertain greater heights.

Finally, I want to thank EPI again for their good work and the impartations they continue to impact in a lot of lives. I personally thank EPI and it is my desire that they will flourish and ascertain the best.

Educational Pathway International (EPI) is a non- profit organization, which guides, supports and empowers young people who are brilliant and needy through a comprehensive scholarship program for university students. This nongovernmental organization helps young people to achieve their educational and career goals.

Grace Bichenlib is my name, a fourth year medical student of the University for Development Studies (UDS), Ghana. I was favoured to get this marvellous scholarship from EPI and since then, my life has totally changed for good. I gained admission into the University for Development Studies in August 2017. This was very great news to my family and I. But the disappointing part of it was that, we were financially incapacitated. But thanks to Educational Pathways International (EPI), which came my way to help me and that of my family. Because of EPI’s scholarship, I have nothing to worry about when it comes to the necessities needed for my education, EPI provides everything financially. The only thing left is for me to focus on my studies and this has really helped me improve academically and to explore more in my field of studies (Medicine).

When I was a child, anytime I see someone with an illness, I always feel the need to help the person. This made me develop interest to study science especially the human biological aspect.

Finding myself in the medical school is an opportunity for me to attain more knowledge about the human body and health to become one of the best medical doctors in the world. Thanks to EPI for making by dream come to a reality. The fourth year in the medical school is one of the years that I really spent much because I had to buy all the books and medical instruments such as stethoscope, patella hammer, pen touch and attires like white coats for ward rounds and scrubs for theatre sections. EPI lifted all the burdens off my shoulders by providing me the money for all these things. The COVID 19 pandemic has really affected a lot of businesses and I was really thinking if EPI could still sponsor me but the organization never consider this as a problem to the extent that they even awarded more students scholarship.

Meeting EPI has really changed my life. I used to think when we talk about education, it is just about you learning only things pertaining to your field of study but EPI has thought me that education is holistic. Apart from what I learn in class as a medical student, EPI has also thought me a lot of things like Entrepreneurship, Time management, the top five skills every employer requires, article writing and a lot more. This I believe will make me unique and also prepare me to fit in any field of life.

Words are not enough to describe the marvelous things EPI has done for me. I can only say I am grateful.

I have loved science since my basic education especially the human aspect of science. I loved to study the systems and every part of human body, because of this, I told myself I was going to do something pertaining to health. I got to know that before I could know much about the human body, then I would have to be a Doctor. This was the time I started learning hard in order to acquire the grade that would send me to a medical school.

Finding myself in the medical school is an opportunity for me to explore more about the human body and become one of the best Medical Doctors in the world. Without EPI, my dreams wouldn’t have been a reality. Thanks to EPI who made this possible for me.

The scholarship has been very instrumental in my university education and has impacted various aspects of my life.

The financial support from EPI helps to settle all my university expenses because it is a comprehensive scholarship. This helps me to focus mainly on my academics and career objectives and not to think about any financial need. The financial support has also helped my mother to save some money to run her trade.

Through the annual luncheon events and thrice semester leadership workshops and meetings, I’ve had the opportunity to meet and get to know other scholars, socialize, make friends and also extend my network of professionals.

Through our career and leadership workshops, I have learnt valuable lessons and insights that are needed at the workplace and in life.

I have also learnt how to write good reports and a winning curriculum vitae.

Being part of EPI has made me to take my academics seriously and always striving to be the best, as a result, I have always maintained a good average every academic year. Pursuing Computer Engineering as a career path is very promising due to the plethora of job opportunities available in that field, in order to prepare me adequately to capitalize on the opportunities in the IT industry I chose to read Computer Engineering which is also in line with my career objectives.

It is my desire that after I have been firmly established in life, I will help establish an IT foundation that will equip individuals with knowledge and skills in computers and programming in rural areas. This is because the future is all about digitization and people cannot be part of it without IT literacy.

With a heart filled with gratitude and joy, I say, Thanks Educational Pathways International.

Confidence Antwi is my name. I am a second year Computer Engineering student at Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST). My life has been positively impacted since I become part of the Educational Pathways International (EPI) scholarship program in 2017. I hail from a family that is singly supported by my mother who is a petty trader, her income is nothing to talk about. Due to financial restraints my elder sister could not further her studies so that our mother could send me to Senior High School. I stayed home for a year before coming to the university. Since I became a recipient of EPI scholarship my whole life and that of my family has gotten a tremendous turn around. The financial assistance I received helped me to settle all my university needs since it’s a full. I now have the peace of mind to focus mainly on my studies and my career aspirations. My mother and my sister are also relieved of the burden of getting money to pay my university’s fees which is too high for them to bear.

The scholarship scheme has been the caretaker of all my university expenses including paying my academic and residential fees, money for my upkeep and other miscellaneous expenses. The EPI scholarship has also provided me the opportunity of going through regular mentorship programs in career development, achieving academic excellence and entrepreneurial skills.

With EPI I will be able to pursue career goals which are; to work as a professional and certified computer engineer, finding a stable job, work in my own IT business startup that will enable me use my skills effectively, to become an expert in the field of computer science and engineering in fututre, this will give me the opportunity of developing more ideas that could provide solutions to problems we face in the IT field.

I am forever indebted to EPI, and I encourage them to keep up with the great work they are doing, and God bless them bountifully.

I am in the person of Rosemond Dabo. A third year Nursing student in the University for Development Studies (UDS) in Ghana and a beneficiary of the Educational Pathways International (EPI) scholarship.
EPI has really impacted my life in diverse ways since I got the opportunity to be part of this family. The leadership skills we are taught, the need to take up roles in the society, right conduct to put up and the advice we are given, the numerous pieces of skills and training which are taught in our seminars and conferences has really shaped my life. The Nursing programme I am currently offering, is a stepping stone to the Anesthetist I have always dreamt of becoming. That is obtaining a BSc. degree in Nursing, obtain a certified Registered Nurse license, practice for a year and further pursue a master’s degree in anesthesia and gain a certified registered nurse anesthetist license to practice as an Anesthetist. Having at heart the need of brilliant but less privilege and hopeless children in my society, I strongly believe I will be able to help them attain greater heights and achieve their goals. My dream of building an Orphanage home for the hopeless and children on the street.
I call EPI a God-sent. Despite the financial challenges my family faces which always stirred up a thought in my head that my dreams and aspiration were shuttered and that I will drop out of school, EPI came to my rescue. Being the first born of two other siblings whose lives are somehow dependent on me and having the need of helping others reach their goal in life, I thought they were impossible because of the challenges I was facing. These responsibilities I feared I would not be able to perform now I strongly believe I can because of EPI. This pandemic that hit the entire world which caused us to stay home for about 10 months has not been easy but very educative and a time of learning new ideas. Within those periods, I helped my parents at home and learnt a bit of other concepts on my own. Not forgetting the online examination to complete those courses we studied which was a great experience and successful.
I study with joy and peace of mind and have been saved from a lot of stressors. My parents have been relieved of the huge financial burden for my educations. I am grateful to EPI for the joy, relief and peace to study. I have hope that my dreams and aspirations will become a reality because EPI gave me the opportunity.

Rosemond Dabo is my name. I am a student of the University for Development Studies in Ghana, offering BSc Nursing and currently in year two.
I consider Educational Pathways International (EPI) Scholarship Program to be a God-sent financial aid to me in my life as it became a source of hope to my family and I at a point where all hope was lost. Before I had the scholarship scheme in November, 2019, my family was finding it very difficult to cater for me in school. There was this other side of the story that I might have even dropped out of school. But, thanks to EPI I am still in school and without a single worry as to how I will pay for my fees, accommodation, books and cater for myself and even my family.
Moreover, EPI through their general meeting that I attended not long ago I learnt how to write a CV, the need to save for the future, with determination I can achieve all my dreams. EPI has not only solved my immediate issues but has also given me the hope that I can surely become the Anesthetist I dream of becoming one day. I deem it a great privilege and responsibility to save the lives of my fellow humans in the near future.
But had it not been EPI, there would have been no iota of hope that the dream can be achieved. It is also my utmost dream and desire to help the less privileged and the needy. Before I had the scholarship, I used to wonder whether it is possible to contribute my quota through my dreams. But now, I have no doubt that I can and I will, it is all because EPI has given me a chance to make an impact in the future.
A very big thank you to EPI for the great opportunity given to me. I am highly grateful.

My name is Theresa I. S. Banyeh, a third year student of the University for Development Studies (UDS) in the northern region of Ghana offering Doctor of Pharmacy. The value of education is something that I understood at a very young age. My father who had formal education but death took him very early. My mother had a partial opportunity to attend a vocational school and is currently a cleaner at a Polytechnic. My mother made a commitment early in my life to do everything within her power to instill in me a love for formal education, learning and understanding of the importance of hard work and dedication. Because of her love and sacrifice over the years, I have been able to devote the time and energy necessary to attain academic accomplishment even though money was a challenge.

After my Senior High School education, I wondered how my university education was going to be funded by my mother. God being so good, I was awarded a full scholarship on Educational Pathways International (EPI) Scholarship Scheme. I remain grateful to Educational Pathways International (EPI) for the support it has given me. It makes me feel that I am not alone on the journey of accomplishing my educational goals.
EPI has actually transformed my life and that of my family’s from grass to grace.

Because of EPI’s comprehensive financial support of my university education things have changed for the better. I do not think of how to pay my fees. I must also add that this scholarship enabled me to pay my school fees, my accommodation in one of the best halls of residence on campus, acquire books, had stipend and all these greatly relieved me, and I do not think of how and what to eat before and after lectures and the financial burden on my mother has drastically reduced.

Our Program Director has been a mother to us all in so many different ways, and despite her busy schedules, she has always made time to be with us.

I am highly grateful to the sponsors of Educational Pathways International (EPI), for their enormous support by transforming my life and that of my family and for helping me to realize what has been a long term dream of my life and my future rest on solid ground and I intend making the best of this opportunity.

My name is Asimah Dramani, a fourth year Architecture student of Kwame Nkrumah
University of Science and Technology (KNUST).
My dream to become an Architect started when I was in High school. I was inspired to
contribute to the development of the built environment through sustainable design and
construction methods. However, this zeal and passion was diminishing due to the cost
involved in studying the Architecture Program. This is because my family could not in better
way afford the fees throughout the program. With the spirit of hope and hard work, I took an
application form at KNUST and I was offered admission to study my dream program, which
is Architecture. But the financial challenges remained an obstacle. A son of a single mum, I
thought all hope was lost. Educational Pathways International (EPI) came to my rescue when
I applied for the scholarship after I had gained admission to study Architecture at KNUST.
With this scholarship package my school fees, accommodation, books and stipend are catered
for. This has relieved me of financial difficulties, giving me the free mind to study for higher
academic goals. My family have been relieved by this huge financial burden.
EPI offers a lot to us as beneficiaries. Attending of regular meetings every semester, we are
trained on various aspects of activities, skills and training that expose us to the benefits of the
society. Leadership skills, Public Speaking, Time Management and Planning,
Entrepreneurship, preparing and sitting for Interviews, CV preparations. Through Public
Speaking training, I can now do presentation confidently without any difficulty which was
actually a problem during my days in first year at the universtity. During our monthly
meetings and seminars, we interact as family and scholars who have common goals and
visions for societies. Our meetings and seminars are lovely and lively as one’s contributions
are deliberated and articulated for the benefits of all.
The impact of Educational Pathways International on the lives of each and every scholar is
very great and splendid as there is huge life changing and transformation. I therefore only
need to study hard and put all the skills learned into practice so that I will be the best of
myself and able to touch the lives of other needy students in our societies.
I pray Almighty God grant the founders, donors and sponsors of this great family more
blessings for them to continue touching the lives of needy and brilliant students in our
universities since poverty is one of the main obstacles to success. I will forever be grateful to
EPI for the support, regular trainings and encouragement they offer me. God bless Ghana,
God bless KNUST, God bless EPI and all who contribute to the growth of this family

My name is Asimah Dramani, a third year student of Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Kumasi, Ghana studying BSc. Architecture.

After my successful completion of Senior High School, living in a remote village in the Upper West Region of Ghana, my passion was to create places of comfort using indigenous material to ensure security of the poor in society but the path to my success of becoming an Architect was becoming thin and dim due to the financial challenges of my family. A son of a single mother, I thought my dream was shuttered.

Things started becoming brighter and clearer when I placed an application for scholarship from Educational Pathways International (EPI) after I had gained admission to study Architecture at KNUST in my first year in 2017. Under this scholarship program, my school fees, accommodation, books and stipend are covered. This has relived my family of financial burden and given me the free mind to concentrate on my academic work, all I have to do is to study hard and make EPI proud. My family has nothing to worry about now.

EPI offers a lot of positive impact to beneficiaries on both religious, social and academic areas. Attending regular meetings every month in the semester, we are trained on various aspects of activities that expose us to the benefits of the society. We were trained on Public Speaking, Time Management and Planning, Entrepreneurship, Preparing CV writing and sitting for Interviews, just to mention but a few. Through Public Speaking training, I have learned how to do presentation confidently without any difficulty which was actually a problem during my days in first year. Though I have limited time on campus, I do set some time aside to design few flyers and sell them to colleagues as a way of applying the skills in Entrepreneurship that I learned. During our monthly meetings and seminars we interact as a family and scholars who have common goals and visions for our societies. Our meetings and seminars are lovely and lively as one’s contributions are deliberated and articulated for the benefits of others.

The impact of Educational Pathways International on the lives of each and every scholar/beneficiary is very great and splendid as there is huge life transformation. I therefore only need to study hard and put all the skills learned into practice so that I will be able to touch the lives of many in the society and our nation Ghana as a whole.

I pray Almighty God grant the founders, donors and sponsors of this great family more blessings for them to continue touching the lives of needy and brilliant students in our universities since poverty is one of the main obstacles to success, without their touch and spirit I would have been on a different lane.

I will forever be grateful to EPI for the support, spirit of love and encouragement they offer me. God bless Ghana, God bless KNUST, God bless EPI and all those who contribute to the growth of this family.
Thank you!!!

Educational Pathways International (EPI) is a non-profit Organization that recognizes, supports and empowers gifted and brilliant students from families of need in their educational needs and I Declerk Booba Danzi, a fifth year student offering Doctor of Medical Laboratory Sciences at the University for Development Studies (UDS) in Tamale in the northern region of Ghana. I am very happy and grateful for been part of this great and noble family. Life had hit me hard at a tender age after the loss of both parents at that early age and my educational dreams, ambitions then were almost gone but with our most High and continual love and the little support by my stepfamily I managed to finished basic school, high school and gained admission into the university where life became very hard in terms of educational needs till finally Educational Pathways International surface and awarded me a comprehensive scholarship which I applied for and since then has really impacted, molded and transformed my life and academics alongside other areas of my potentials and talents.
In my life and academics, EPI has provided me with a conducive and an enabling environment required by every student in accomplishing their short-term and long-term educational goals. Why do I say this? This is because things like, school fees, accommodation fees, stipend for books, food, clothes are all part of the package students enjoy under EPI scholarship. These things are the basic necessity to the success of every student in school and I am glad to be part of students under this package. Also, EPI scholarship program provides its scholars with a form of positive control check that keeps us on track whenever one is going out of track academically and other area of our lives. Again, on every general meetings of EPI, we are taught topics such as report writing, five skills employers look at, writing of curriculum vitae (CV) among other interesting topics which most probably won’t be taught in our usual classroom studies. This helps me to package myself well as I proceed in life.
However, the emergence of the global pandemic called corona virus or better still covid-19 last year had really taken a toll our academics and life since schools were closed down as part of the measures the government took in combating the global pandemic covid-19 making us go home from school for a long period. This caused the authorities of the school to resort to some drastic measures such as online lectures, studies and online exams to be used to complete the remaining trimester while at home as students left school in the middle of the second trimester. These measures are all electronic based making it difficult for the online lectures, studies and exams as one will have to buy data bundle for electronic gadget to be able to accessed the online lectures, studies and exams and sometimes the network for connectivity was very bad due to area of residence because of poor network connectivity. These affected me a lot as I was mostly unable to accessed lectures and studies online and even late submission of online exams work. I am glad that we are back in school since January, 2021 and lectures, exams and other academic work are all done in person in my school.
Doctor of Medical Laboratory Sciences as a health programme helps deliver services in prognosis, diagnosis of disease conditions and also offers a wide range of opportunities for students after completion. Students after completion have the opportunity to specialize in various fields like chemical pathology, haematology, virology, bacteriology, researching and so on. As a health programme and after completion, I will work diligently and very hard to improve upon the health status of people at where I will be posted. Also, in collaboration with fellow health personnel, organizing medical check-ups and health screening for my community occasionally to brief and alert them on their health life and how to practice precautionary and preventives measures to help curb illness like malaria, cholera and other sicknesses is what I intend to do.
I forever remain thankful to the sponsors of EPI for their unmeasurable aid in impacting, moulding and transforming my life and that of my family and for the strength in striving towards my long-term dream.

I am in the person of Danzi Declerk Boodba, a fourth year student offering Doctor of Medical Laboratory Sciences at the University for Development Studies (UDS), Ghana. I grew up with my stepmother and her children since my mother and father died when I was very young. At that time, I thought my educational life had come to an end, but my stepmother and stepsister made a commitment from then to do everything within their power to instil in me the continual love for education, learning and understanding the importance of hard work and dedication. Because of their continual love and sacrifice, over the years, I was able to make it from the basic school into the high school and then gain admission into the university but the going has always been tough in terms of monetary issues.
As I was constantly searching and trying to find scholarships opportunities that will assist me in my educational needs, I remain grateful to have come across the opportunities fellow students have been getting from Educational Pathways International (EPI). Educational Pathways International (EPI) is a non-profit organization that sponsors gifted and needy students in their university education. Educational Pathways International (EPI) has actually impacted, molded and transformed not only my life but that of my family by turning our sufferings into blessings since I joined EPI last two years.
In my life and academics, EPI has provided me with an enabling environment required by every student in accomplishing their educational goals. Why do I say this? This is because things like, school fees, accommodation fees, stipend for books, food, clothes are all part of the package students enjoy under EPI scholarship. These things are the basic necessity to the success of every student in school and am glad to be part of students under this package. Also, EPI scholarship program provides its beneficiaries with a form of positive control check that keeps us on track whenever one is going out of track. This so because, one condition of the scholarship is for you to continue to maintain very good academic standard. This helps one to not relax but takes his or her studies more seriously. Again, on every general meetings of EPI, we are taught topics such as Report Writing, Competent Skills Employers Seek, Writing of Curriculum Vitae (CV) and others which most probably won’t be taught in our usual classroom studies. This helps me to package myself well as I proceed in life.
I chose to offer Doctor of Medical Laboratory Science because it offers a wide range of opportunities for students after completion. Students after completion have the opportunity to specialize in various fields like chemical pathology, haematology, virology, bacteriology, researching and so on. After completion of school and in the future, I will work diligently and very hard to improve upon the health status of people at where I will be posted. Also, in collaboration with fellow health personnel, organize medical check-ups and health screening for my community occasionally to brief and alert them on their health life and how to practice precautionary and preventive measures to help curb illness like malaria, cholera among others.
I am very grateful to the sponsors of EPI for their enormous support by impacting, moulding and transforming my life and that of my family and also for giving me the strength to keep pushing for my long-term dream.

A beneficiary of Educational Pathways International (EPI) residing at Jasikan of the Volta region, Ghana, Prosper Azameti is my name. Having completed Senior High School in 2011, I could not have any means to even pay my admission fees until 2018 when I got admitted to University of Ghana. Combined major in Mathematics and Statistics is the programme I happily chose to pursue with the intention of becoming a Mathematics Teacher to assist my beloved country, Ghana, eliminate poor performance in Mathematics which prevents most students from continuing their education to higher level.
Before I was granted full scholarship by Educational Pathways International (EPI). I thought of deferring the programme due to financial challenges and difficulties in catching up with studies since I stayed home long after my high school education which had weaken my knowledge reserve of fundamental mathematics concepts. Of the added responsibility of taking care of my mother who was still suffering from stroke, being granted the full scholarship by EPI was not only a relief for my stay on campus to pursue academic laurels but also a way to the fulfilment of my career goals.
EPI gave me and my family reasons to face life and its challenges head on. My financial burden has been reduced drastically which has enabled me to purchase some prescribed medicines for my mother without any negative effect on my academic commitment. I henceforth focused on my academic works since EPI takes care of my tuition and residential fees and also gives me extra money for my books and other necessities to make my stay on campus a stress-free one which has given me added motivation to press on.
With the difficulties presented to the world by COVID-19 and having resorted to online studies, lectures and examinations, I cannot fathom what would have become of me if I had not been able to save some monies from EPI’s funds in order to purchase a laptop. This has helped me continue to meet the requirements for being a beneficiary of EPI scholarship and maintain a GPA well above the minimum of 3.0 as at the end of second year.
EPI also gave me another family on campus. Our monthly family meetings serve as a training session to equip all of us for the world outside school. At the end of second year our family meetings have given me another dimension to perceive the world outside for which we are now in discussion to also move to online meetings accordingly. I am forever grateful to EPI for their continuous support which has put me on the path to self-realization. I am forever indebted to EPI and very grateful to all the donors and sponsors.

The Educational Pathways International (EPI) is a non-profit organization that provide educational support to gifted but needy tertiary students who have the potentials to impact their societies positively toward development. Ever since I, Abrokwah Joseph Junior became a beneficiary of the EPI scholarship program in 2019/2020 academic year, the program has transformed my life appreciably in terms of finance, academics and emotion. Now, I am a second year Doctor of Medical Laboratory Science student at the University for Development Studies (UDS) in Ghana, with a dream of becoming a Medical Laboratory Scientist in order to help improve the health of the people of my community and Ghana through the diagnosis and research into health-related issues. EPI is really helping me to acquire the skills and knowledge I would need to realize my dream.
Through the financial support I receive, I obtain every single item concerning my education the requires ‘money’ with much ease. Now, I worry no more about funds to pay my school fees or keep me on campus when school resumes. Through this wonderful intervention of EPI, I have a peaceful mind to focus fully on my academic and extracurricular activities. Also, a very huge financial stress has been released from the shoulders of my family.
During the lockdown period of the Covid-19 pandemic, where all educational institutions were closed and forced to complete the 2019/2020 academic year online, I easily accessed all my online sessions of my studies without paying any extra fees to internet cafés because I had my laptop and other devices which I bought with the funds of EPI scholarship. Hence, all I had to do was to purchase my internet data bundle.
In my stay on campus, I depend absolutely on the financial grant I receive from the EPI scholarship for my accommodation, clothing, and feeding. As a matter of facts, I never imagined a gifted student of my kind, who belongs to a family of peasant farmers with six siblings could have such a smooth condition in my tertiary education but EPI has made this ‘life in the movies’ real to me. I therefore, would use this opportunity to express my immense gratitude to the Educational Pathways International and advocate for donations to help EPI transform the lives of many other gifted but needy students in my country.

Educational Pathways International (EPI) is a non-governmental Organization that provides scholarship to gifted and needy university students in Ghana to enable them go through their tertiary education successfully and develop their talents to make impact on their societies and the nation as a whole. EPI currently offer full scholarship to gifted and needy Ghanaian students in some of the public universities in Ghana, University for Development Studies (UDS), Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) and the University of Ghana (Legon).

As a first year student and a beneficiary of this scholarship, I would like to express the impacts of this scholarship. From the financial support I received, I was able to pay my school fees and accommodation fees, acquire the necessary books I need for my studies with much ease and stipend for my upkeep on campus. As a result, my parents and I do not worry about fees anymore. A huge burden has been taken away from the shoulders of my parent and now, I have a sound mind to study and develop my numerous talents. Besides, I have been able to afford a laptop which I never had until I was granted the EPI scholarship, and has made my studies and building of my ICT skills easier.

The mentorship aspect of the scholarship is widening my scope of thinking about tertiary education and life as a whole. I have realized that, being at the tertiary level of education goes beyond academic work but every aspect needed to improve one’s way of life and hence I must work harder. Many are other benefits I enjoy from EPI scholarship but cannot tell all because of time.

With this opportunity, I say a very big thank you to the founders and management of Educational Pathways International and I really appreciate their effort to improve the socio-economic status of Ghana by helping to educate gifted and needy young Ghanaian university students.

I would also like to beseech all non-governmental organizations and philanthropists who would have the opportunity to read this review that, there are many gifted and needy children in the numerous rural areas in Ghana and Africa who need their interventions in order to climb their education lather.

I am Issahaku Alhassan, a fourth year Medical student of the University for Development Studies (UDS), Tamale, in the northern region of Ghana. I live in Kuga, a suburb of Yendi in the northern part of Ghana. I am a beneficiary of Educational Pathways International (EPI) scholarship. I became a member of this family in 2019 and I would like to use this opportunity to show my gratitude to EPI for the life changing support I have been given.
First and foremost is the financial support. I was awarded a comprehensive scholarship which caters for all my educational needs at school. And now, I can confidently have the peace of mind to study since everything is covered by the package EPI gives me. This gives me hope and a peaceful mind to concentrate on and achieve my great educational goal and serving my district and Ghana as a whole.
Also, EPI scholarship, not only does it give financial support, it gives educational training and skills that we might not receive in the classroom. These are important topics every university student must learn in order to be successful during and after their university education. And EPI in their infinite wisdom, thought about this and then took an action to organize these seminars in order to help us climb smoothly on our educational ladder and also on the corporate ladder after school. I have learnt a lot from this and I am still hoping to learn more and to teach those who did not get the opportunity to learn them.
Furthermore, I can state comfortably that my goal is apparently achievable with EPI's support and I pledge to work in my district which has always been in dire need of this specialist since the district hospital was established and to give support to my community in terms of organization of forums on health education and health screening. I also wish to establish a clinic in my community in the long future to provide an accessible healthcare to the people in my community.
To end with, I would like to express my profound gratitude to EPI, I say thank you so much for your support.

My name is Issahaku Alhassan a third year Medical student of the University for Development Studies, Tamale, Ghana. I am a beneficiary of the Educational Pathways International (EPI) scholarship. I am from Kuga, a village in Yendi in the northern region of Ghana.

I would like to express my sincere gratitude to Educational Pathways International (EPI) for the life-transforming opportunity they gave me by making me a beneficiary of the scholarship program. EPI has made my dream achievable, because it has provided me with the enabling environment to make my dream as a medical Doctor come true. It has given me the chance to learn well since it has taken most of my problems away, by paying my school fees, paying for my accommodation, books and providing me with funds for feeding. Had it not been for the immense support of EPI, I would not have been able to pay for all my university expenses. Also, through the mentorship programmes, which is a part of the scholarship package, and topics discussed in general meetings which is shaping us and molding us into better persons for now and for the future. And also to equip us of the corporate world.

For the enormous support of EPI, I intend to give back to my community and Ghana in entirety when I complete my course of study. I would like to stay in Ghana and join the train of health workers to combat diseases in order to improve upon the quality of life of Ghanaians. Working with a pulmonologist in my district was what encouraged me to study medicine, since there is no such specialist in the entire district. I have the goal of joining a scholarship institution in the future in order to support those who cannot afford to achieve their academic goals.

Also, I would like to impact on my community through health education, regular health screening, and mentorship to students within the community, since I am the first person to pursue medicine in the community.

Finally, I would like to once again, thank EPI for all forms of support they have been giving us. Thank you.

The Educational Pathways International (EPI) scholarship program has given me the hope and assurance of achieving my dreams. I had serious financial difficulties due to my poor family background. This was a hindrance to my academic performance since my field of study is expensive. I have seen a great improvement in my academic performance after I became a beneficiary of the EPI scholarship.
Through EPI, not only had my fees been paid but also my books, stipends and my accommodation have been catered for. I am now staying on campus and this has given me the opportunity to have group studies with colleagues. Besides, I am always on time for lectures.
I express my profound gratitude to EPI. I have been greatly impacted. I did not only receive financial benefit but social and cultural benefits as well. EPI is more than just a scholarship body to me. Since I became a beneficiary, I have undergone numerous training sessions on building my potentials and how to achieve my academic and career goals.
Doctor of Medical Laboratory Science is a field of science that deals with providing accurate information based on analytical tests to aid in diagnosis and treatment of disease. I chose this field because human and animal life is very precious to me. Medical Laboratory Science forms the fundamentals of treatment. Saving life could best be done by objective means. This could be achieved by testing. Hence my choice of field.
I have great intentions of giving back to my community and the country at large. I will help gifted students who would find themselves in my situation. I will encourage young ones to work hard and also help them to unearth their potential by educating them. Being with EPI is a great opportunity for me to execute this plan.
I will like to share my experience during the closure of schools amidst the Covid-19 pandemic. Lectures were organized virtually. Thanks to EPI I have a quality personal computer and a mobile phone and so I had both the examination and lectures smoothly. I had no problem with buying data bundles. Internet access was very easy for me. I still imagine how I would have participated without the necessary learning tools.
God has intervened in my life through EPI. I have transformed within a short time. I am forever grateful and I am indebted to EPI. People around me marvel at my sudden change in life. Thank you EPI.

I became a beneficiary of the Educational Pathways International (EPI) scholarship program last year, November, 2019. The scholarship seeks to help gifted students who are in serious financial need, of whom I am one. My name is Solomon Awiagah a second year student of University for Development Studies offering Doctor of Medical Laboratory Science.

EPI has transformed my life as quick as possible. What makes me feel more comfortable with the EPI scholarship program is the fact that not only my financial needs have been met but my social and moral life have been impacted as well. I receive every guidance and necessary advice that would help me to achieve my dream from EPI. My studies have improved greatly after I became a member of the EPI family. My school fees have been paid and also bought my books through the scholarship fund. I now have a hostel on campus and this has reduced my lateness to lectures. I used to stay about twenty kilometers off campus. This fund has helped some of my siblings in their education.
EPI has given me an enabling environment to share whatever problem I encounter. EPI is actually a family and I am very proud to be a member of this family.

The EPI family in my school meets three times in every academic year for general meeting and seminars. During these meetings a lot of things are taught and learnt. I have learnt a lot of things within this short time that I have joined this wonderful meeting. I also learnt how to associate with people of different characters.

I express my sincere gratitude to EPI for changing my life so quickly. I pray that God would restore what you spend on us in abundance.

My dream is to become a responsible adult to society upon graduation. I would contribute towards the development of my community. I would help other students who are also needy and gifted to achieve their dreams. I want to specialize as a chemical Pathologist upon graduation. I believe strongly that with EPI I would achieve all these dreams.

I thank EPI once again for transforming my life completely.

Patrick Ayibire is my name. I am a third year student at the University for Development Studies (UDS). I am studying Doctor of Pharmacy. Educational Pathways International (EPI) has brought relief to me and my family by lifting the financial burden off our shoulders. Through training and lecturing sessions organized by EPI for its beneficiaries has instill time consciousness, financial management , entrepreneurial skills and confidence in me that I can achieve anything in life in spite of my background or social standing and these have reflected in my improved performance in my academic work and social interaction with other people.
During the first outbreak of the Covid-19, all educational institution were closed down and the institutions resorted to online lectures where I needed some amount of money for airtime and data for daily online lectures, with EPI financial package that was taken care of and I even used part of the package to support my family since the pandemic affected petty trading since trading in the various markets were done on shift basis.
Growing up in Bolgatanga, east of the Upper East Region of Ghana, where the natives resort completely to herbs, root and traditional methods of treatment of various kinds of diseases, this gradually inculcated in me the love for medicinal products and the joy to see people healthy again through these products was the motivation that made me admire the Pharmacy profession right from my basic educational level and even made me read General Science in the Senior High School level and subsequently gaining admission to read Doctor of Pharmacy at the University for Development Studies, Ghana.
I would like to further my education in Pharmacy Research and Pharmacology after completion of the Doctor of Pharmacy programme. Ghana like other countries such as India, Indonesia etc. is blessed with various medicinal plants whose leaves, root and bark contain various medicinal compound such as alkaloids, glycosides, terpenes etc. which can be extracted naturally or semi-synthesized to be used for the treatment of various diseases. With the knowledge and skills from the Pharmacy School, the extraction of the medicinal components from these substances would be used to synthesize drugs locally which would reduce the importation of most drugs from other countries which are often very expensive for the ordinary Ghanaian to afford and since about 70% of Healthcare has to do with drugs this would go a long way to improve healthcare delivery nationwide.
One core interest of EPI is giving back to the society, the community or the nation as a whole of the transformation one has received and I would like to embark on “Safe and Effective use of medication” campaign where the native would be enlightened on the danger of self-medication and the negative effects of not complying to health workers directives of medicine intake and drug-resistance often caused by incomplete dose intake and overuse of medications.
Again, I would embark on free screening exercise for the people of Bolgatanga East and subsequently other parts of the country with the help of other healthcare professionals such as Doctor, Nurses, and Nutritionist etc. We would take that opportunity to educate the people on certain obsolete beliefs they still hold, such as HIV/AIDS is punishment for unfaithfulness, cerebral palsy and parkinson disease all punishment from the gods etc.
And also enlightened the people on the various methods that are available to prevent pregnancy and STIs, their benefits and side effects and also advised them to opt for the one that best suit them since teenage pregnancy and lack of family planning are very prevalent in these areas.
Finally, I would like to express my greatest gratitude to Educational Pathways International for assisting me achieved my academic dreams and ambitions and for enabling me cater for my family financially during this pandemic. I say God continue to bless the Educational Pathways International.
Thank you.

What a joy once again to be privileged to express and share to the global world about the impact and the positive life changes made to the entire human race by a well-recognized, distinguished, outstanding and an impactful Organization such as Educational Pathways International (EPI). I am grateful to be given this kind of opportunity as I journey from one level of victory to another as a very proud EPI scholar.
My name is Paul Yennuyal Singir. I am a final year Nursing student at the University for Development Studies (UDS) Tamale campus located in the northern part of Ghana. I am a native of Sayeegu which is a community under the Bunkpurugu-Nakpanduri district in the north eastern part of Ghana. As a citizen of Sayeegu community, I noticed over the past years that the inhabitants are in serious poverty. I realized that the root source of the problem was lack of health education, promotion and facility leading to the unnecessary expenditure of finances on health and yet always losing many of our young people. Being born and raised from such a community and having to witness and go through all the above mentioned challenges, I was internally inspired to acquire health knowledge and skills so as to stand the chance of being a solution to the challenges of my people in Sayeegu community. This truly forms the basis of my purpose for offering Nursing at the university with the intention of promoting health education and advocating for the need of a health facility in Sayeegu community after gaining the necessary position and education as a graduate and become a licensed Nurse.
EPI which is known as a life changing Organization have contributed positively to my life and my entire family and this has given us the opportunity to reach out to many others both in and out of my community to offer a helping hand in special ways.

Peace and hope has been restored in many homes, towns and villages through EPI scholarship hence enabling people to approach life in a better and a more excellent way. I must testify that the people in the land of Sayeegu continually enjoys peace, hope and love today as a result of the sponsorship from EPI.
My desire to study and learn new things keep increasing daily because of my exposure to several learning materials, educative programs, and mentorship sessions being organized by EPI. This has been my motivation not just only to graduate successfully with a BSC in Nursing but to go as high in academia even up to the level of PHD in Nursing and this will imply that the quality of life of the human race in our various societies and beyond will take a high stand of improvement. From my domain and perspective of living, several others especially families of the Sayeegu community of which my very grateful family is inclusive sees this as an evident opportunity to testify and express the goodness in our hearts in response to the positive changes made through EPI sponsorship. I want to use this privilege to indeed testify that the transformations made by EPI can never be quantified and many more others will stand as proves to this fact. My great appreciation and thanks goes to EPI for personalizing the responsibility of transforming lives in our generation and I must say that you worth to constantly be celebrated in every place that life exist. Thank you.

I am a native of Sayeegu which is a small community under the Nakpanduri-Bunkpurugu district in the north eastern part of Ghana. As a citizen of Sayeegu community, I noticed over the past years that poverty has been a persistent outcry among my people and as a future leader, I realized that more than half of the annual income is always spent on our health especially during the rainy season in my community. There is always a rampant outbreak of diseases such as malaria, cholera, and typhoid which is most at times due to the lack of education on dieting and personal hygiene. Lack of health education and health facility account for the high rate of poverty in the Sayeegu community. Upon ruling out the major problems of concern among my people, I was internally motivated to study Nursing at the university with the intention of promoting health education and advocating for the need of a health facility in the future at Sayeegu community after gaining the necessary education as a graduate and a licensed Nurse.
EPI which is known worldwide as a very generous and a supportive Organization that give full scholarship to beneficiary students in the universities who come from homes of financial challenge. Sponsorship from EPI have enabled me and my entire family to approach life in a better and an excellent way.
My desire to study and learn new things keep increasing daily because of my exposure to several learning materials, educative programs, and mentorship sessions organized by EPI. I have been recommended by most of my lecturers in several occasions as the best presenter in our noble department and this always come with some financial awards. I have led my fellow students to write a research report in one of the communities in the Northern region of Ghana during our out programme and the general remarks from our assessors was just excellent and this generally improved my academic performance in the past two years .In this regard, I want to use this opportunity to thank Madam Eunice the Program Director of the mentorship sessions for the training skills and the warm receptions over the past years that empowers me to come up with some innovative solutions to our local problems.
Generally all thanks goes to EPI for executing the idea of the mentorship sessions which is very educative, transformative and serves as a tool of encouragement to many of us in taking up leadership positions. Sponsorship from EPI have given me the opportunity over the past two years to contribute positively to the academic upbringing of thirteen students in the basic level in my community. I have been a motivation and a role model to other students in the community through teaching and guidance and all this is made possible through the sponsorship from EPI.
Finally, EPI have demonstrated uniqueness in touching lives of many deprived and gifted students. It is my pleasure to wish EPI long life and a warm congratulations for their commitment to the purpose for which the organization was established. Thank you

My name is Samuel Yeboah, a student of the University for Development Studies in the Northern Region of Ghana. I am in my third year reading Doctor of Medical Laboratory Science.
Financing my education has been my utmost problem from Senior High School until I became a beneficiary of Educational Pathway International (EPI) Scholarship. My encounter with (EPI) has been the turning point of the financial crises in my educational life.
Educational Pathways International is a scholarship scheme that provides financial assistance to needy and brilliant students. Financing tertiary education in this part of the world is a problem for many. The emergence of EPI has been a lifesaving Organization for many tertiary students.
Educational Pathways International does not only provide financial support to me as a beneficiary. They organize seminars to educate us on other aspects of life that shapes our academic, leadership, social lives and also to prepare us for the corporate world in the future.
During this era of covid 19, Educational Pathway International advised us on the various preventive measures against the virus.
I am very grateful to Educational Pathway International for their support in my academic life. Growing up as a young adolescent in my community, I realized one of the major problems confronting my people was the easy spread of diseases, I always thought of a way I could help eradicate these diseases from the community.
This geared my attention towards Medical Laboratory Science. This aspect of the health care system uses human body fluid to diagnose the cause of disease and hence providing information on the right treatment to be meted out.
Upon graduation as a Doctor of medical laboratory science, this will help me provide education on the cause of the diseases and the means of preventing such diseases in my community.
I will again collaborate with other health care professionals to organize free health screening for the people of my community.
I am of high hopes to setup a scholarship scheme of my own to assist brilliant and needy children within my community since I have seen the importance and benefits of Educational Pathways International in my life.

My name is Edmond Boah, a third-year student of the University of Ghana pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in Administration. I was privileged to receive the Educational Pathways International Scholarship Award during the first semester of the 2019/2020 academic year.
In my first year in the university, life was very hard for me financially because my parents were faced with financial challenges. I was on the verge of dropping out when Educational Pathways International (EPI) came to my aid. The timely financial aid brought a great relief to my family and I because I no longer need to worry about how to pay my academic and residential fees.
There have been a tremendous transformation in my academic, social and moral life since I joined the EPI family. Aside the financial assistance offered me, EPI has impacted my life positively through the numerous meetings and training sessions organized by the Program Director. I have gained knowledge in other aspects of life and I’m optimistic that it will be very relevant to me in the corporate world.
Growing up, I have developed a very strong passion for the Accounting profession. I aspire to become a renowned Accountant in the near future. With this financial support from Educational Pathways International (EPI), I intend to start writing ACCA papers next semester in order to bring my dream of becoming a Chartered Accountant into fruition.
I live in a rural community where farming is the major occupation, since most parents cannot afford university education for their children, most brilliant students are left with no option than to join their parents in farming. I am motivated to defy the odds and give back to my community by providing financial support to these brilliant but needy students in the near future.
I wish to express my heartfelt gratitude to Educational Pathways International for the timely financial assistance offered me. I do appreciate your efforts and commitment to help brilliant and needy students like me realize their dreams and achieve their academic goals. Once again thank you for your support.

It is already three years since I joined Educational Pathways International (EPI) family and it has been a wonderful experience. Before I joined EPI in 2018, I was a depressed student. I was always thinking about where my next academic and residential fees would come from. I could not afford any reading materials that were required for my coursework since I had to spend the little I had on me to feed myself. But since I joined the Educational Pathways International family, all these problems have been a thing of the past.
I can gladly say today that, for the three years that I have been on the EPI scholarship, my life as a student have changed completely. My academic performance has improved incredibly. I have become more confident as a student and more equipped to help other people in my community.
Although the corona virus pandemic disrupted our academic activities and EPI family meeting for almost a year, the lessons I learnt from our monthly EPI family meetings has equipped me with the skills to face the world outside the classrooms. Thanks to the numerous internship opportunities, I have built for myself the relevant skillset for the business and cooperate world.
As a final year student of University of Ghana, I can say without an iota of doubt that joining EPI is one of the best things that have happened to me. Elidad Ofosu Addo is my name. I am a final year student of BA Political Science and Chinese Major.
I chose to learn Chinese language in the University of Ghana as a result of the increase demand for Chinese interpreters in Ghana. After graduation, I will like to work as an interpreter for a Chinese company in Ghana and also start a farm in my community. As I have benefitted from EPI, I will also want to give back to my community by helping the needy students in my community with their fees and learning materials. I believe in doing so I will contribute to making the world a better place for all and also contribute to quality education which is one of the United Nation’s strategic development goals.
I look forward to graduating with a first class honors degree this November and I am grateful to Educational Pathways International for being a part of my success story

When I completed high school in 2016, although I had a good examination results, my parents could not afford my tuition in any university in Ghana. In 2017, after teaching for a year and saved enough to pay for my admission fee, I applied to University of Ghana. Before I joined Educational Pathways International (EPI), life on university campus was very hard. I could not afford any reading material recommended for my course of study. I had to manage the small upkeep money for months to lessen the pressure at home. I always felt sad whenever I called home because things were worst.
Educational Pathways International gave me and my family reasons to smile again. Our financial burden has been cut down. My parents can now focus on other aspects of our lives since EPI has given me a comprehensive scholarship which covers my tuition residential fees, books and stipend to make my stay on campus a stress-free one. This has given me reasons to press on and learn harder to achieve my aim in the future.
EPI also gave me another family on campus. Our monthly family meetings serve as a training session to equip all of us for the world outside the classroom. Among the things that I have learnt are How To Prepare Curriculum Vitae, Manage My Time Effectively. I am now able to plan my daily activities which have helped me to see a positive improvement in my academics.

To begin with, I am Joshua Anzagra Dery, a student of the University for Development Studies in the northern Region of Ghana. I am currently in my fifth year and I am pursuing Doctor of Medical Laboratory Science. It is said that a journey of thousand miles begins with a step. I took that bold step five years ago when I decided to go to the university despite my financial situation at home. I knew this was the boldest step I could ever take knowing so well the struggle I put myself and my parents through. Before I started my six years’ journey, I seemed to be thorn between the devil and the deep blue see. After the decision was made to further my education, not too long after that I met my first hurdle. I was at the edge of calling it quits until the timely intervention of Educational Pathways International showed me light at the end of the tunnel.
Growing up as a young boy, my parents inculcated in me very enviable values; hard work, diligence and perseverance to say the least. I knew my roots and I understood perfectly the need to excel. When I got enrolled on the scholarship program, I knew that all my burdens had been lifted and taken away from me. This was because I started my tertiary education on a shaky note, with so much to think of and worry about, to say the least. EPI was my hope when I thought all hope was lost. They gave me a comprehensive scholarship. At that point I felt that I had no other burden in the world and that I was free to soar so high like an eagle. An enormous burden had been lifted from the shoulders of my parents.
I made it through to my fourth year until the Covid-19 pandemic reared its ugly head in the entire globe. This affected the academic calendar of school because all schools were closed down. Later on lectures, assignments and examinations were done online so that we could continue with what we left off at school. Thankfully schools reopened for the new academic year in January 2021 and since then, school has returned to normal. We have returned to our classroom lectures and interaction with other students. And this is far better. I cannot end without expressing my profound gratitude to Educational Pathways International (EPI). They always keep me on my toes and make me very focused in my studies. This has helped me excel in every field I find myself in.
I chose my programme of study because I realized due to sheer ignorance and unavailability of clinics, testing centers and the inability to properly diagnose diseases, the people of my community were dying of easily preventable and curable diseases. I can boldly say that my dream of giving back to my society is almost accomplished, with all thanks to the Almighty God and to EPI. In view of this, I plan to set up several diagnostic centers in my community to not only help to properly diagnose and treat diseases, but to also educate them on the need to make their health a priority and maintain basic personal hygiene. I am strongly in agreement with the quote, ‘Making one-person smile can change the world. Maybe not the whole world but their world.’ and to me that is very important.
I want to express my deepest thanks to Educational Pathways International and remain appreciative. I’ll never forget your support and kindness. I am eternally grateful. Thank you.

I am in the person of Joshua Anzagra Dery, a fourth year student of the University For Development Studies in the northern part of Ghana pursuing Doctor of Medical Laboratory Science. The value of education is something that I understood since at a very young age. Neither of my parents had an opportunity to attend High school and faced many struggles in their personal and professional lives because of this. They made a commitment early in my life to do everything within their power to instill in me love for formal education, learning and an understanding of the importance of hard work and dedication.

Because of their love and sacrifice over the years, I have been able to devote the time and energy necessary to academic accomplishment even though money has always been a challenge. I remain grateful to Educational Pathways International (EPI) for the tremendous assistance granted to me throughout my university education through the comprehensive scholarship that I have been enjoying these past years. It makes me feel that I am not alone on the journey of accomplishing my educational goals.

Educational Pathways International (EPI) has caused a great change in my life and that of my family. All hope was lost along the line during my first year days in the university. To God be the glory, this hope was restored after joining EPI family. Without support from EPI, life would have been hell in the university. My mother being the ultimate provider of the family, depends solely on her pito brewery (a local drink) to help cater for me, my father and other siblings who are still in the basic school. The meagre income she gets from this business is channeled into paying of fees making life unbearable for her.

I must therefore admit that, since I joined EPI, things have changed for the better. I do not think of how to pay my fees, accommodation, books and I do not think of how to eat before and after lectures and there is no financial burden on my parents for my education. This has also had a great improvement on my academics and performance at school,

I am highly grateful to the sponsors of Educational Pathways International (EPI), for their enormous support by transforming my life and that of my family and for helping me to realize what has been a long term dream for me.

My success in gaining Educational Pathways International (EPI) scholarship award has impacted and transformed my life in several ways. First and foremost, it has help wiped out the dew of financial difficulties my family was facing. I am in the person of Nancy Owireduwaa, a fifth year student of the University for Development Studies, in the Northern Region of Ghana. I am currently studying Doctor of Medical Laboratory Science.
I wouldn’t have been able to achieve my dreams when I started my university education due to the financial constrains my parents were facing. I applied for EPI scholarship when I was in second year and by God’s grace I was awarded a comprehensive scholarship. I am now a beneficiary of this Non-profit Organization. My financial barrier has been removed, wiping out the dew of difficulty that was blocking the light of hope for me. Also being a beneficiary of this noble organization has transformed and impacted upon my life through series of lectures and seminars. We are taken through seminars where we are taken through skills that will help us during our schooling and mostly after school.
During the corona virus pandemic, as schools were shut down for a nine month period, we were engaged in series of audio slide presentations and group discussions via our WhatsApp platforms and online teaching to enable us complete the school’s academic year. I was able to set up a new small scale business using my previous knowledge from the leadership and entrepreneurial seminar that EPI took us through before the pandemic. This has improved my leadership and marketing skills.
I also believe successful education is entirely dependent on clear setting of goals and relentless commitment towards achieving those goals. Another interesting topic we treated at one of our seminars by EPI.
While I am intrigue at the prospect of achieving academic excellence, that is attaining a distinction, my joy shall be made complete, when my colleagues could obtain excellence in their academic prospects as well. My primary goal will include a holistic approach encompassing teaching assistantships for my colleagues and application of knowledge acquired to educate the indigenous of my community. I seek to achieve through academic integrity and avoid unhealthy struggles. It is said that “when two brothers fight to death, a stranger inherits their property”. True excellence is not measured by the hoarding of knowledge but the free will of the scholar to share his knowledge with others. Albert Einstein, in his article: the world as I see it, was explicit on the importance of selflessness towards creation of a better world. I share in his ideology and thought, and I find myself brainstorming a hundred times a day, reminiscing and appreciating that my inner and outer life are based on the labors of other men, living and dead, and that I must exert myself in order to give in the same measure as I have received and am still receiving. My success in gaining this scholarship has buttress my ideology to offer more to the society than I receive from it collectively.
There are several career goals I would like to be achieved during my active service with national and global health directorates. The following are enlistment of some of my career goals:
I would like to instil discipline in my colleagues and subordinates. To be a leader in the laboratory setting, one is obliged to influence his subordinates to act in perfect alignment as dictated by Ministry of Health. I would endeavour to demonstrate discipline, punctuality, hard work and follow other code of ethics of this noble profession.
I shall develop favourable attitude and cordial relationship between colleagues and clients likewise. I would also like to help implement and abide any rules and regulation within my working environment. If it wasn’t for the kindness and love the Educational Pathways International (EPI) team has shown me, my academic goals and career goals would have been beyond reach. Thank you

My name is Ameyaw Christiana. I am a third year student offering Bsc. Midwifery at the University for Development Studies (UDS), Ghana. Educational Pathways International (EPI), a non-profitable Organisation which provides scholarship to brilliant and needy student. Educational Pathways International has impacted my life positively and made me comfortable as a student ever since I was awarded the scholarship.

Financial difficulties has been one of the major predicament my family ever since I was young. My mother is a food vendor at a primary school in my village. My father died when I was five years old. My family has been faced with financial challenges. Due the financial crisis, my elder sisters ended up in teenage pregnancy. Two years after I completed Senior High School, a good “Samaritan” came to my rescue and I entered into tertiary. Unfortunately, he could not help me the following year. My mother spent her little savings on my transport and feeding this financial challenge negatively affected my academics until EPI came out of the blues and wiped away all my tears. My mother’s financial burden has reduced drastically since EPI awarded me a comprehensive scholarship for my university education. I can now concentrate on my studies and my academic performance has improved well.

Also, talking about the benefits of EPI, the leadership programs, education and mentorship has impacted my life positively in my social and academic life. Educational programs such as report writing, how to speak in public and CV writings just to mention a few from Madam Eunice has helped me in many ways. I am able to make presentations in my class and I am currently the general secretary for my hostel and church in the University for Development Studies.

Unfortunately the covid 19 pandemic which led to a lockdown and the closedown of the universities last year interrupted our in-person educational sessions from EPI last year. Also, during the lockdown, most of my lectures and examination had to be held online which really affected me because of poor network connection in my hometown. Sometimes, especially during the examination period, I had to travel to the next town to be able to access network for my exams. The lockdown really affected me. But God being so good, schools have resumed and things are gradually returning to normal again.

One thing I have realized all my life is that the most important role of mankind is to live for the success of one another which can be attained by impeccable sound health. I chose to offer Midwifery because it has been my passion to save lives. Midwives work in all healthcare settings in a various ways, providing women and their families with choices and continuity of care.
Upon a successful graduation, I shall set up a healthcare committee to provide education to the people of my community and the country at large, especially younger girls who are ignorant to the positive outcomes of education and are prone to teenage pregnancy come to the realization of the benefits of education than just giving up to indulge themselves in unhealthy lifestyle. I shall also contribute to the management of the immense risk of child birth in Africa continent, especially Ghana. I have devout my life to become an expert, possibly a Doctor of Midwifery practice to unravel the determinants of mortality rate in maternal and child birth.

With God Almighty, and by the help of EPI, I believe this is all possible. All thanks to EPI. It is my prayer that God grant all their heart desires and continue to bless the entire Organisation.
I am grateful

I am Sylvester Nartey, a second year student studying Biochemistry, Cell and
Molecular Biology at the University of Ghana, Legon (Accra).
As Educational Pathways International (EPI) scholarship recipient, I am very grateful
for the generosity of the Organisation. EPI has alleviated my financial burden which
has allowed me to focus more on the most important aspect of school, learning. The
comprehensive scholarship given to me has allowed me to focus on my academic
pursuits. EPI has helped me to be able to achieve the grades necessary to fulfil my
professional ambition of becoming a Medical Doctor. EPI also has remarkable
programs that they take us through which is aimed at shaping us for our lives on
campus, academics, for our social lives and for the corporate world in the future for
successful lives.
As the second born of four boys in my family, my father has been out of employment
my entire adult life. My mother has been the one who is supporting the family
through her meagre income. Despite the above financial challenges, I have
remained very focused and determined to make a difference in my family. I have
learned to make books my best companion. God being so god, I was awarded a
comprehensive scholarship by Educational Pathways International (EPI).
My dream is to become a Medical Doctor in the future. I am currently studying
Biochemistry, Cell and Molecular Biology which will provide me with more knowledge
and skills before I enter the medical school at the postgraduate level. Also, all
medications prescribed by Doctors are based on biochemical examinations. My
future profession as a Medical Doctor will ensure that I make important contributions
to Ghana's development. Many people die of diseases and as a Medical Doctor I will
conduct research to minimize and eradicate them. This will help maintain and restore
the health conditions of the citizens of Ghana.
In a period of just few months, the COVID-19 pandemic has transformed the lives of
masses of people including students. Virtual learning for students is the norm at my
school and some schools. It was initially quite difficult to adapt to an online learning
environment immediately after the traditional classroom learning. However, it was
important for me to accept the new learning environment with an open mind.
  
I am very thankful to Educational Pathways International for their support. This
scholarship has inspired me to help others and give back to the society. I cannot
emphasize the financial relief that Educational Pathways International scholarship
has given to me. I hope one day I will be able to help students achieve their goals
just as Educational Pathways International have helped me.
Thank you.

As the second born of four boys in my family, my father has been out of employment my entire adult life. This left me and my other siblings to be solely cared for by our mother who has had to resort soliciting financial support from other family members to be added to her meagre income to see us through our education. The beginning of the academic year was very traumatic in my home because of financial challenges. I had to manage the very little resources that was provided and risk extending the days I had to go without food.
The above challenges notwithstanding, I have remained very focused and determined to make a difference in my family. In my misery and stressful moments, I have learned to make books my best companion. An attitude that have brought me some comfort, materially and emotionally.

I am Raphael Amankwaa, a second year Law student at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Ghana. As a student, I have always endeavor to achieve the best in my chosen field of study. As such, I am always determined to advance to the best position to enable me contribute my quota to my community, and also to the administration of justice in my country. A spectacle of my community and country at large shows how voiceless and innocent people who for some reasons are unable to get justice. As a proponent of justice, I feel morally obligated to serve these people to get justice after obtaining the necessary training.
With much enthusiasm and hard work, I managed to make it to the KNUST to study law. But my first month at the school ,only, portrayed nothing but a stranded person who was out of place, which made me feel I did not fit in. My situation was as a result of financial constraint which made it difficult getting basic educational necessities. However, amidst this predicament, Educational Pathways International (EPI) family came to my aid in 2019 and awarded me a comprehensive scholarship and since then there has been a pivotal change in my education and entire life.
This EPI has been a family to me ever since and has always prioritize my education and personal well-being through various seminars and group meetings which I personally call it a family gathering. Through these exposure, I have been endowed with various teachings and skills.
Even during the early phase of the novel Covid-19 pandemic, which led to the closure of schools for about a period of nine to ten months, EPI always engaged us (beneficiaries) through various correspondence to enlighten us on the pandemic, especially how to stay safe.
All these point to the fact that EPI is not just a scholarship scheme or foundation but a family with its members (beneficiaries) at heart.
My experience with this foundation has instilled in me self-discipline, tolerance and the ability to articulate my views on issues.
In a nutshell, EPI from my perspective is an ordained mechanism for raising people like me from obscurity to limelight. I am therefore forever indebted to this great foundation for all the support that it has bestowed on me. It is my firm, resolute hope and prayer that this great Organization advances from one rung of the ladder to the highest height.

I am Raphael Amankwaa, a first-year Law student of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Ghana. I completed Diaso senior high school, a less endowed school. Coming from a poor background when there was no hope, Educational Pathways International (EPI) has given me hope and impacted greatly on my education since my first semester 2019/2020 academic year.

It is a great privilege to write on the general impact of Educational Pathways International scholarship (EPI) on my life and how it has tremendously changed my educational life and given me hope for my dreams.

To commence with, EPI has influenced my education positively, this is because prior to my enrollment on EPI scholarship, I used to spend a lot of my time thinking about how to get funds to support my education. However, with EPI, I am able to annexed and channel these time to my education. EPI has relieved me of the daily stress as to how to gather money to acquire my basic educational needs, now with EPI my tuition fees and other educational needs are met. Also, being on the EPI scholarship has also helped given hope to my dreams, goals and aspiration.

I offered to study Law with the intent of being a Lawyer in the near future to be able to assist the needy, poor and voiceless who for some reasons are unable to access justice in our country and also to contribute my quota to my community and Ghana as a whole. This dream of mine almost faded until it was rekindle by EPI. I must reiterate that EPI did not only give hope to my dreams but it has created the assurance that these goals of mine could be achieved.

Aside the educational benefit, I have been equipped with various leadership skills and life experiences which are not entrenched in our educational system. These skills however in effect will contribute to my overall wellness in the society as I advance in life. The acquisition of these skills was made possible through the various meetings and seminars I have attended since I joined EPI.

I would like to use this opportunity to express my profound gratitude to the Educational Pathways International for their support and sponsorship to my education and my overall wellbeing.

My name is Christopher Delali Dzeney, a second year student at the University of Ghana, Legon. I am studying Bachelor of Arts in Economics and Geography.

My life has been witnessing tremendous experiences and opportunities since my award of the Educational Pathways International Scholarship at the University of Ghana. Educational Pathways International (EPI) scholarship is a comprehensive one that takes care of all my educational needs on campus. This has gone a long way to help me study in comfort and it has help to boost my morale and confidence to work hard towards a better future for myself. I have also been able to maximize my university experience through service-learning, volunteer opportunities, our monthly EPI scholars seminars and internships.

I opted to study Economics because it provides useful information and economic intelligence upon which critical government, legal and business decisions are made. Also, Bachelor of Arts in Economics degree is highly essential for pursuing programmes like Law and International Relations and Diplomacy; which are postgraduate programmes I would like to pursue after my further studies in Economics.

Before, I further my education in Economics, Law and International Relations, I wish to work in any of these sectors: banking and finance sector, export and import businesses, government and non-governmental organizations, diplomatic corps or venture into entrepreneurship with the main aims of presenting economic ideas in both speech and writing. This will gain me a working experience with my BA Economics degree. Majoring in Economics, will equip me well with the language and skills to engage in policy debates and help advance economic and social progress in Ghana and beyond.

The corona virus pandemic which brought academic activities to a halt for a long time has helped us all adopt new ways of studying, living, working and doing businesses. Teaching and learning since April, 2020 has been mainly facilitated through the university’s online platform called the Sakai Learning and Management System. We struggled to adjust, but we are now used to virtual activities.

I’m currently the treasurer of two foundations,
Easkarm Foundation and I Support For All Foundation Ghana. These two non-profit organizations were formed by vibrant and goal oriented individuals like myself with the idea of giving back to the society in our best ways. We visit and donate (in cash and in kind) to orphanages and homes through the help of philanthropists. We also visit high schools and have seminars and workshops with the students. Our goal for the next few years is to reach out to more people who are less privileged, expand our activities and have more sponsors for our activities.

I finally wish to thank EPI for their investment in my life and other students like me. One of my long term goal is to give back to the university of Ghana by helping needy students like me to reach their educational height through scholarships or in other areas.

I'm called Collins Anfo. I am a beneficiary of Educational Pathways International (EPI) Scholarship Programme and a second year student of Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) sited in Kumasi, Ghana. I am reading BSc. Business Administration (Marketing/International Business).

We face different obstacles in the continuum of striving for change that seem to set a hedge keeping us from accomplishing great things. Fortunately, EPI has helped mitigate these problems for some of us. I am now able to concentrate more on what is important and better my everyday life. For me, joining EPI has been a life altering since 2019/2020 academic year.

Since I joined the EPI family, our Program Director has made a deliberate attempt to build and train our skills and talents for our own good. Academically, thanks to our Director's instructions, I made a giant leap forward. We have tackled numerous impactful issues of great importance that have strengthened our attitude on a whole new direction. Beneficiaries of EPI at my school are brought together by interactions amongst us to create a team and a family. This has led to a steady social life. It has been a very thrilling, informative and life-changing time to be with EPI this short while.

Even during this extraordinary phase of the COVID 19 pandemic, EPI has been with us. The assurance of good will and sincere support helped us to combat this pandemic. As a result of this pandemic, the new "E-learning" program or online education has been launched. Most of us were unfamiliar with it, but we discovered that it was really interesting when it was explained to us. We had the opportunity to be taught how to do online research. We wrote most of our semesters examinations and presentations online last year as well as lectures online. This experience has made me aware that we are in an evolving environment that requires adaptation in order to survive.

Choosing to read a business programme at the university traces back to my great desire to explore the worldwide fields of doing business. As an option for international business, I intend to be a Business Analyst, an International Economist, and an Entrepreneur. I took my inspiration from different business magnates who not only made it in life, but also affected their homes actively and positively.

I will do my national service in any impoverished village or town in my country after completing my university education, at the same time contributing tirelessly to volunteer work. After that, I will secure a job at a renowned business organization, I will further my education later. I will do my utmost to assist my group in striving for successful turnouts.

How proud and thankful I am to be part of the EPI family. I always admire the good work and the effect the Organization has on young people like me. For us, the gateway to a prosperous future is now possible. I will continue to pursue my way up the ladder due to EPI’s overwhelming desire to see me grow and achieve my dreams. Thank you.

There are various difficulties faced by brilliant and needy students, some of us never lost hope that things will be alright. Those who were able to forge ahead found the light towards betterment.

Since I joined EPI, I have gone through important sessions, meetings and trainings that did not only positively affect my academics but also my personal and social lives altogether. Gaining this scholarship was evident in improving my academics and personal life. I was much relaxed and more focused on learning to achieve my targets for the semesters. Meetings held to deliberate on issues and discuss important topics which were led by Auntie Eunice, our Program Director, proofed to be of great help. The platform gave me the chance to share my thoughts and my doubts. Interactive experience with co-beneficiaries of our big family cannot be overemphasized. One workshop we had on CV writing was breathtaking, since it opened mind on how to effectively write a more convincing and a job winning CV for myself.

Choosing to read a business program at the university traces back to my great desire to explore the fields of doing business around the world. International Business as my option, I hope to be a Business Advisor, International Economist and an Entrepreneur.
