My name is Roselyn Davour. I’m a second year student of University of Ghana. I am studying BSc. Dietetics. I completed high school successfully with the intention of proceeding to the university to read dietetics. However, I was worried about how this was going to be possible since I lost a parent immediately after I graduated from high school and there was financial instability.
I applied for the Educational Pathways International (EPI) scholarship. I went for the interview and I was selected! Every year, my tuition, accommodation, books are paid for by EPI and I’m also given a stipend all I have to do is study very hard. Having this scholarship has really helped me. It has motivated me to study hard. Also, it has reduced the burden on my mother since she doesn’t have to worry about how she will get money to cater for my educational needs.
Aside the financial support, EPI has created a family for all beneficiaries in my school. We have meetings where we learn a lot of life-transforming lessons such as public speaking, efficient time management, etc. The public speaking lesson for instance has helped me a lot especially during presentations. I am able to speak confidently in public and express myself articulately during presentations. The meetings also have helped me to socialize and interact with other beneficiaries who are very lovely and supportive.
I’m very grateful to Educational Pathways International for making this possible. Just when I thought all hope was lost, EPI put a smile on my face and that of my family and I’m studying hard to become a successful person so that I can also touch the lives of people just as EPI has touched my life. Thank you so much EPI.

Elizabeth Pomaa Nti is my name, a third year student of the University of Ghana studying BSc. Nursing. First of all, I am very grateful to the Almighty God for granting me such an opportunity to be part of Educational Pathways International (EPI) Scholarship. After admission into the University, payment of fees was not an easy thing and all I hoped for was to have a scholarship so I can be able to settle the other fees in the years ahead. But God paved a way.
EPI has not been a blessing to me alone but my family as well. EPI has brought a great joy and happiness into my family and the support from them is even more than expected. Aside the financial support, EPI has also equipped me with the social skills through organization of seminars where topics such as public speaking skills, time management, CV writing amongst others are discussed. Achieving of academic excellence, counselling and motivation of members cannot be left out of the support EPI offers to its beneficiaries.
All of these have equipped me with the necessary skills and has really brought a great change into my life. I strongly adhere to the fact that with God, hard work and determination I will be able attain a higher level in my education and become a successful person in future. Also, I will give a helping hand to the needy and brilliant students as well as giving back to society what it has offered me through voluntary health screening activities and others.
I want to use this opportunity to really appreciate EPI for their support to us and may the Lord God richly bless you and grant you an unending grace, joy and happiness.
Long live EPI

Richard Kandire Abeetinso is my name and I am from Nator in the Upper West Region of Ghana. Currently, I am offering Bachelor of Commerce in the University for Development Studies (UDS) in the northern region of Ghana. My parents (father and mother) passed away when I was in the Primary School. This made me to stay with my Uncle as a guardian who also passed away shortly after l have been enrolled into the university.

On the area of career, I am interested in computing and financial mathematics. With this goal in mind I want to be a Chartered Accountant when l complete my education in the university. My dream to be an Accountant would have been impossible if Educational Pathways International (EPI) scholarship had not come to my aid. As an orphan, I struggle a lot to make ends meet throughout my education journey up to the tertiary level since l was solely responsible for my education: fees, feeding, accommodation, books and others. In fact, the struggle at the tertiary level was unbearable as compared to the other levels of my education as l have to do all kinds of odd jobs (small scale mining-galamsey, petty trading, cleaning, farming and others) during holidays and sometimes school periods in order to cater for my school fees, accommodation, and others. Absenteeism as well as other financial issues used to affect me adversely as far as academic work is concerned.  My vision to be an Accountant was blurred but now, it is over!

Thanks be to Educational Pathways International (EPI) since all these things l used to do are things of the past. I now see my dream as a Chartered Accountant becoming possible since I don’t have no worry on the payment of fees, books, accommodation and others. I can now visualize my dream (career) as something in my hands, and literally speaking, EPI is my parents (father and mother) since l am an orphan.

Also, the general meeting that EPI organises for us (the beneficiaries) have improved my life greatly, especially that of my academic work. Many issues confronting students are shared and dealt with during our meetings. Moreover, my family (brothers and sisters) are really grateful to EPI for its timely intervention in my life. Again, I sometimes assist my brothers who are in the senior high school when there are enough funds for me, and my family hope for a brighter future for me.

I would want to use this opportunity to thank all donors of EPI for the relentless support they have been giving to gifted students of financial challenge in the universities. Thank you!

My name is Amina Mohammed a final year Education student of University for Development Studies,Ghana. I am from a family of eight. My father is a Mechanic whereas my mother is a housewife. I gained admission in the year 2014 to purse the above mentioned program. Money to pay for my admission and accommodation was really a problem but I was able to struggle and get to the second year. At the beginning of my second year, life became worst for my family.  I was called by our faculty officer who informed me about a scholarship offer. I quickly applied and came for an interview and Allah being so good I sailed through.

I joined Educational Pathways International (EPI) in 2015 they took care of my tuition, accommodation, books and feeding fee. Life became so easy since I did not have to call home for money. I have been under the scholarship scheme for up till date and it has helped my family since I am not a burden on them again.

Every month EPI organises seminars for us through our noble Program Director in person of Madam Eunice. We treated topics like goal settings, time management among others. These topics have really impacted in my live because I always set goal in everything I do. I also manage my time very well.

My goal in life is to become a Teacher thanks to EPI it is just left with few months to achieve that goal though it will not end there more achievement is yet to come.

EPI is really a lifesaving scholarship scheme. God bless EPI. Long live EPI.

My name is Mohammed Amina, a 3rd year student of University for Development Studies,UDS, offering Bed Science education. I am from a family of eight. My dad is a mechanic and my mum is a trader. My dad is the caretaker of the family and yet sometimes financing the family becomes difficult.
After having gained admission into UDS, my parent could only afford to pay the admission fee but couldn't get enough money for my personal upkeep. Life became so difficult for me that I couldn't afford to buy some of my reading materials and other necessary materials needed for a successful completion of my course. After completion of level 100, uneasily though, my parents said they don't have money to help me continue, so the possibility of me deferring my course was at hand. But thanks to the timely intervention of EPI, i was rescued from this dilemma. EPI has influenced my life greatly and that of my family. I can now concentrate on my studies without thinking too much about financial issues. Thanks to EPI, I can now achieve my goal of becoming a teacher to help impart knowledge and to contribute to the development of lives of many people in Ghana.
Long live EPI . .

My name is Alhassan Kamilu, a final year Applied Chemistry student of University for Development Studies (UDS), Ghana. 
As the 5th student in my native community to gain entry into a tertiary institution, I was fortunate to be awarded a scholarship by Educational Pathways International (EPI). Before luck smiled upon me, my family was in great financial crisis as my younger sister was in her final year in Senior High School and my elder sister also had admission into the Polytechnic at the same year.
Fortunately for me, I became a beneficiary of EPI scholarship in 2015, when I was in the second year. My parents then had to concentrate on my sisters only. As of now, my younger sister is aspiring to become a health assistant and my elder sister is already a national service personnel as she graduated from Tamale Polytechnic last year. Currently, I am in my final year and very focused on my studies owing to EPI's support.
Apart from financial assistance, the seminars organised periodically every trimester for EPI beneficiaries contributed immensely towards attaining my undergraduate education so far. I have learnt a whole lot from these seminars including but not limited to goal setting, time management and career guidance. With these tips, I have always planned every trimester, setting both short and long term goals that I expect to achieve at the end of the trimester. 
Also, one of the requirements of EPI scholarship is that beneficiaries maintain a particular grade point average every trimester, this propels me to perform academically well and to work consistently towards completing my first degree within the allotted time with a better grade.I intend graduating with a good grade, presumably, a first class or second class upper and pursuing both my Master’s degree and Doctorate degree. My career goal is to become a Researcher in the field of synthetic chemistry. 
Thank you EPI, I am very appreciative of your support and I will strive hard to be able to offer a helping hand to needy students someday.

My name is Maxwell Nyadeva, a second year Chemical Engineering student at Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST). I was awarded Educational Pathways International (EPI) scholarship last year in October. EPI is very competitive and it is one of the best scholarship organization that every student wants to be enrolled on. This family is known for its interest in needy and brilliant students in the university. EPI is the only non-profiting organization that offers full scholarship to gifted students in my university and I am honored to be a beneficiary of this scholarship program.
I am the first out of eight siblings to be in the university due to financial constraints and inadequate funds to sponsor my elder siblings. Luckily for me, EPI intervened in my situation. This has been one of my greatest blessings in life. My academic life has improved. Before my enrollment I was very unhappy and hardly participated in class. It was not that I couldn’t do so but my circumstance did not permit me. This had an effect on my performance.
But now I actively participate in class and my performance has improved tremendously. I also have a laptop now to help me with my studies and also my research work. I now have the freeness of mind to study and also pursue my academic and career goals.
I met new friends in EPI family and this has improved my social life too. During EPI meetings, we are taken through a lot of topics that will prepare and shape our lives for the job market like how to write accurate reports, Entrepreneurial skills just to mention just a few. Most importantly is how EPI has brought happiness into my family. My family is very grateful to EPI.
My educational pursuits as at now would not be possible without the generous support from EPI. Thank you Mr. Leonard Lafrance and Mrs. Sara Lafrance and the EPI team with the mission of recognizing, nurturing, and supporting gifted young people through scholarships and educational programs.

I am Francis Aheto, a final year BSc. Food Science and Technology student of Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Ghana. Had it not been for the timely intervention of Educational Pathways International (EPI) scholarship program, I would have dropped out of school by now, due to the financial inadequacy and insolvency of my family. Being a beneficiary of this scholarship program has greatly alleviated the financial burden and emotional stress of my parents. If not for EPI's financial aid, the indebtedness of my parents by now, due to the aggregated sums of money they would have borrowed from friends and microfinance agencies would have prevented my younger sister from being able to continue her education to the Senior High School. 

The amazing thing is that EPI has highly contributed to my academic success of being the top student of my class presently. With the funds received from EPI in my second year at the university for instance, I was able to purchase a laptop which has been a great asset for my studies and academic research works since then.

My career goal is to become a Dietician and Nutraceuticals Researcher focused on developing functional foods from underutilized local crops, to help in reducing the high micronutrient malnutrition in Ghana and Africa at large. 

EPI is not like any other charity organization that merely provides financial aid without checking up on the intellectual growth and leadership skills training of their beneficiaries. From the grooming I have received from EPI, I have become more confident, diligent and psychologically prepared for the job market.  The love EPI has shown me so far, has inspired me to contribute my selfless quota in the founding of  "Aid Hub Ghana", a student charity organization that is aimed at providing primary schools in rural communities with requisite teaching and learning materials.

With the professional goals setting guidance, emotional support and confidence boosting training that I continue to receive from being part of EPI family, I definitely have hope for a better future.

Thanks to the benefactors of EPI and their team. God bless EPI.

It is with utmost joy and gratitude that I write this review about a scholarship I consider to be a blessing to the lives of many needy and brilliant Ghanaian students. I am Marylyn Awuah Oduro, a first year Petrochemical Engineering student at Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST).I was fortunate to join the wonderful Educational Pathways International (EPI) family the same year I gained admission to pursue this programme after successfully passing through the laid down selection process.
I had always wanted to be an Engineer since childhood. However being aware of the financial challenges facing my parents, I feared it might be of hindrance to my academic and career goals. l am aware of the massive financial and psychological support I need to achieve my goals thus I have always seek for the opportunity to be a scholar to further my studies to higher height. Fortunately, a developing country like Ghana have realised the numerous benefits of science and technology thus have embraced engineering.
It took a scholarship to see me through my senior high education. Due to financial issues, I had to stay home for a year after graduation. However, I applied and gained admission to the university the following year by the help of contributions and loans from family and friends. The joyful news of being given the opportunity to pursue Petrochemical Engineering at Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) was indeed an unforgettable one. Thanks to the advertisement on the KNUST website, I got to know of Educational Pathways International (EPI) and what they stand for.
A nonprofit non-governmental organization (NGO) that seek to recognise, support and empower young people from needy families by providing them with full scholarships for the university education. In addition to this, frequent meetings are organized by EPI so as to equip beneficiaries with new ideas and skills to compliment what we acquire in class.
Considering my experience with EPI, I can boldly testify that it is a great family one is blessed to be a part of. This is because they do not only provide financial support but go the extra mile of offering advice, counsel and motivation thus shaping us for academic excellence and helping us achieve our career goals as well.
I believe with grace, hard work, determination and the support from EPI,I would be able to succeed in my academics and become a successful and responsible citizen to help the less privilege in the society and contribute towards national development.
My sincere and heartfelt appreciation goes to the executive body of EPI, other supporting bodies of this organization especially the benefactors, Mr. and Mrs. Lafrance, the one of a kind couple who seeks to unearth the potential in brilliant and needy student. It is my prayer that the Almighty God bless them and make them progress in their good works thereby encourage other able bodies to do same for the progress our dear nation. Thank you EPI.

I am Kennedy Amankwah, a first year student offering Bachelor of Science in Administration in the University of Ghana.

I completed senior high school in 2016 but could not continue my education that same year due to financial challenges even though I had very good grades. I started doing all sort of meagre jobs just to be able to further my education in to the university. I worked and saved for a year and with little help from my mother, I bought an admission form of University of Ghana and applied.

I got the admission and had to pay the fees and other related charges for me to become a student .My mother added to what I have saved and I came to school.

When I heard of Educational Pathways International (EPI) scholarship, I decided to take advantage of it because looking at the conditions at home and the fact that I'm a regular student I did not know where I was going to get the money for my fees, accommodation, books, and other upkeep expenses for the next academic year. Having gotten the scholarship has really helped me a lot. Now my mother need not to worry about how to fund my university education as long as I continue to show academic excellence.

The scholarship has really made me feel comfortable and given me the peace of mind to be able to study without bothering about my financial issues.

Growing up, I used to like calculating and admire people who are into Accounting and that ignited my interest to become an Auditor. But now with the support EPI is granting me, I think I am on my way to making my dreams a reality if I work very hard.

I want to use this opportunity to thank the heads and workers of the EPI scholarship scheme and all the donors who are helping to bring hope to some of us. I say God richly bless all of you and replenish all that is lost by giving such a wonderful support to us

Thank you

This scholarship scheme, Educational Pathways International (EPI), is a very good scholarship program that offers the best that can ever be given to needy and brilliant students. I came to know about the scheme through a friend who was already on it. She testified about it so much that I decided to give it a try and the outcome has been worth it.
Through this scholarship scheme, the hustle of funding my university education has completely been taken off because I was given a full scholarship which covers everything a student needs at school. To my parents, it has been a great relief since they can now totally take a whole rest when it comes to my fees, my accommodation, money for books and stipends for upkeep, which have been taken care of by this scholarship scheme. This has enabled them to fully concentrate on the needs of my younger siblings.
Personally, the opportunity through Educational Pathways International has given me a free mind to concentrate on my studies and not being distracted when it comes to financial matters. Educational Pathways International has also motivated me a lot in my studies and has broadened my field of view in life as it teaches new and exciting things during our meetings that can actually be achieved. Educational Pathways International is a stepping stone in being able to become an excellent Medical Doctor which in turn will be a great opportunity for me to pursue my studies in Paediatrics.
Educational Pathways International’s scholarship scheme is the best form of help that any student could ever have in his or her academic pursuits. God richly bless Mr. and Mrs Lafrance and the entire EPI team for the great and good work they are doing. Long live Educational Pathways International, long live all donors and sponsors of Educational Pathways International!!!

Growing up in a family with financial challenges, it was difficult for me to get full concentration as my future was greatly threatened by financial issues. The thought of reaching this far was then only a dream. I learnt about this great Organisation which offers full scholarship to gifted and financially challenged students in my university. l applied and fortunately I was awarded a full scholarship by Educational Pathways International (EPI). Since then it has been one great experience after the other.

A very great financial burden was taken off my parents shoulders. For the first time in my life, I had some people who did not only completely took over my parents' financial obligations but also represented them in their parental duties here in school. The officials of the scholarship do what every responsible parent would do to bring the best out of their children. I realized that the officials of this great family do not just want our financial welfare, but also care so much about our academic , social life, emotional needs and others.
.
Consequently, I have developed self esteem which has shaped my public speaking confidence. I have grown from being a tentative boy to a strong optimist who sees opportunity in every difficulty. Also, I can now do my research work and other assignments without having to borrow friend's laptop.

With the Education Pathways International scholarship, my future rests on solid grounds and I intend making the best out of this invaluable opportunity. Owing to this fact, I have made a firm resolve to reach the highest level in the academic sphere. I want to acquire the highest possible expertise in my field of study, Pharmacy.

Coupled with my academic and health related goals, I also want to be able to reach out to the financially challenged but brilliant children in my community. I want to be the force that propel some people forward some day. I want to be the smile on the face of that helpless person out there. I want to be a part of the reason why life is worth living for someone. Putting myself in the best position to serve humanity is my key goal in life and my whole career has always been geared towards that.

In conclusion, I thank the team that make up Education Pathways International and everybody working to ensure its sustenance and through whose efforts living testimonies are made out of hopeless situations for needy and brilliant Ghanaian students.

My name is Hassan Ishao, a final year student of University of Ghana reading Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (Accounting). I am a beneficiary of Educational Pathways International (EPI).
Educational Pathways International is the best thing that has happened in my life. EPI identifies needy and gifted students from families all over Ghana and support their education. University education is the most expensive part of education, so when I had admission I was wondering where I was going to get funding from then came an intervention of EPI. When EPI picked me four years ago as a beneficiary of their scholarship, all the despair vanished, I was filled with hope, dreams, goals of the future.
EPI did not only pay my school fees, accommodation fees and money for books and upkeep but they comprehensively helped develop my life. With EPI I had the opportunity of having many internships in different organizations, guidance and counseling sessions which helped develop my career, leadership and academic goals. My dreams of becoming an Accountant is a reality because of EPI.
I am forever grateful to Mr. and Mrs. Lafrance, Auntie Eunice for their generous and wonderful work and support. Kudos to all of you and may the good Lord bless you.

My name is Hassan Ishao, a third year student of the University of Ghana reading Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, Accounting major. I am from Navrongo in the Upper East Region of Ghana.
Being the best scholarship program in the University of Ghana in transforming the lives of needy but brilliant students whom the lives of families, communities, and the country’s hope depend on, Educational Pathways International has achieved its goals. I was selected for the scholarship program after applying and going through a number of interviews.
Being a beneficiary of this scholarship for the past three years is a life changer and blessing to me. Being the first member of my family to come to the University would have been a nightmare. Not only have my fees been paid over the past three years but also my accommodation was paid as well as money to buy books and for my upkeep. Three years as a beneficiary of Educational Pathways International has made tertiary education less stressful and gave me the peace of mind to concentrate on my studies.
Aside paying for our school fees, accommodation and our upkeep, Educational Pathways International always has a coordinator and an office where we meet periodically for guidance counseling concerning our educational and social welfare. This has helped me a lot in terms of social and educational life.
Educational Pathways International also inculcates the spirit of giving back to society in us through internships we do during our vacation periods at home. Not only do we give back but also this helps us develop our educational and professional career.

I was overjoyed after receiving a call as a recipient of Educational Pathways International (EPI) scholarship and it was a great moment for me and my family.
However the kind of support I am currently receiving is more than what I expect from a scholarship scheme. It has provided me the opportunity to interact with high intellectuals as well as high achievers in which we all operate as a family, sharing common ideas and problems. It’s indeed a magnificent family linked together not only through social media platforms such as WhatsApp or facebook but rather meeting together as a family.
EPI follow the progress of our studies as well as our participation in meetings, seminars and training programs and activities of the scholarship group. The foundation teaches us the importance to our commitment to social development. In addition to that, the scholarship has enable me to be more selective in how to spend my free time and the experience through service-learning, volunteer opportunities and internships will make me a more attractive job candidate.
Educational Pathways International scholarship enabled me to commit more to my coursework since the financial burden of education has been lifted from my shoulders and indeed brought my family and I peaceful mind. It has indeed boosted my confidence that a brighter future beholds awaits me and I will contribute effectively to the development of my country. And has also boosted my academic work.
In a nutshell, the peace of mind I have gotten from this scholarship is so dear to my heart. My family and I, will forever be grateful for the generosity shown to us.
Thanks to EPI benefactors, team, donors and sponsors.

Educational Pathways International (EPI) over the years have helped to nurture the dreams of several young men and women in their education, and I have been a lucky beneficiary of this intervention. Being part of this wonderful family would always be one of the major breakthroughs, as well as one of the moments I cherish most in my entire life. EPI has ensured that I concentrate on the most important part of my education, which is studying and learning.
Apart from lifting the financial burden off the shoulders of my family, EPI has also trained me in the field of Entrepreneurship, Public Speaking, Writing CV, and Preparing for Interviews as well as many other areas through our monthly meetings. These, I believe, would go a long way to impact my future in a very positive way.
The timely intervention of EPI has helped me to keep alive my dreams of becoming a Cardio Pharmacist, so that with the upsurge of cardiovascular disorders, I would be able to make an immense contribution to save humanity. I have also got to appreciate the need to give back to society through EPI, and I believe this would help me to also help other brilliant and needy students to achieve their dreams.
I would forever be grateful to the entire EPI team for their immense contribution towards my education as well as my life, and I believe God would bless them abundantly for giving a lot of young men and women hope.
Thank you.

My name is Grace Bamfo - Ennin. I am in second year pursuing Law at Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology. I was enrolled into Educational Pathways International (EPI) scholarship scheme in my first year at the university.
I always say that EPI is a miracle that came my way at the right time. When there was very little hope of actually coming to the University in the first place due to financial constraints, I was very fortunate in the end to be awarded with a scholarship from EPI. My mother keeps reiterating that the scholarship is actually hers and not mine because looking at the circumstances in which Educational Pathways International came my way, it seemed more of an answer to her incessant prayers and now she is very confident that EPI can assist her daughter realize her dream of becoming one of the excellent Lawyers our country has ever known.
Coming from a background where there are very few literates and barely anyone climbing up the academic ladder, I am laid with a burden to come up higher and effect a change in my environment. The thought of becoming the first Lawyer in my family in fact brings so much motivation and encouragement and propel me to give my best. It has not been easy and the course has been thrilling as well as exhilarating, however the joy of being awarded with the crown of sweet victory at the end pushes me forward.
Now I look into the future and I see a good Lawyer and smile because gradually I'm getting there. Educational Pathways International has been very instrumental in making me to become who I've always dreamt of. Aside the remunerations that beneficiaries are awarded, we also have the opportunity of having a seasoned Coordinator meet up with us every now and then to impart unto us and the standard demanded of us can only bring out the best in us.
In conclusion, Educational Pathways International is the best non-profit organization in the world and they leave indelible marks in the lives of their beneficiaries.

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 achieving 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 channelled 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 contribute 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 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 school 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 kids and offer a remedy to malnutrition.
Thank you.

I am Abel Daartey, a fourth year Doctor of Pharmacy student of Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST). I am very happy to carve my review about this honorable non-profit Organization, Educational Pathways International (EPI). This sponsorship organization offers the best of package to brilliant but needy students on campus.
In fact, before I became part of this noble family, all my educational needs were being catered for by the sole effort of my mum. I really pitied her considering what she does to get money for me to have my secondary school education.
However, despite all the odds and challenges, my mom was determined to help me further my education to the tertiary level.
When I became part of this family in 2014, to my dismay, the scholarship package was enough to cater for all my basic needs. Besides, I have no troubles doing my registration since they settle all my fees when required.
Furthermore, the living standard of my family has changed tremendously and we are a happy family now. Besides, the burden on my mum has been reduced, since she does not have to struggle to cater for the expenses of me and my brother in school.
EPI did not only impact in me financially but it has continually benefited me in various ways; by the good works of Aunty Eunice, I can confidently boast of how to use my time well, how to write Resume or CV, Develop my Entrepreneurship skills, Write Reports and Developing the Attitude of Saving. Above all, one weighty thing I have gained from EPI is the annual vacation Internship that we are being made to embark on. It has enlightened me in broad spectrum on how my future career of being a Pharmacist is like.
In fact, as part of my career goals, I am working hard to become a professional Clinical Pharmacist. Also, impact in health education to sensitize the public on good health practices. After working for some time, I wish to also serve my people and at some point in my practice work in the community pharmacy. Most importantly, I would further my education in my field of practice as a Clinical Pharmacist in order to maximize my practice of Pharmaceutical healthcare services in my country Ghana.
I am so much indebted for the wonderful support that EPI offers to her beneficiaries and I hope it would continue to touch the lives of many.
In summary, EPI is the best in reaching to the needs of brilliant and needy university students.
Long Live EPI and her workers. God bless you.

REVIEW BY DAARTEY ABEL
I am Abel Daartey, a third year pharmacy student of Kwame Nkurmah University of Science and Technology (KNUST). I am very glad to write my review about this noble non-profit Organization-Educational Pathway International (EPI). This sponsorship organization offers the best of package to brilliant but needy students on campus.
In fact, before I became part of this selfless family, all my educational needs were being catered for by the sole effort of my mum. I really pitied her considering what she does to get money for me to have my secondary school education.
However, after my senior high education, my mother was desperate to send me to the university despite her haplessness. She was able to afford the entrance form to the university alright but could not afford to pay the full fees demanded by the university. As determined as she was she borrowed from friends and well wishes to support me.
When I was given this scholarship in 2014, to my dismay, the scholarship package was enough to cater for all my basic needs I would need for studies. Besides, I have no troubles doing my registration since they settle all my fees when required.
Furthermore, the living standard of my family has changed tremendously and we are a happy family now. Besides, the burden on my mom has been lessened, since she does not have to borrow to take care of my expenses in school.
Lastly, EPI has not only helped me financially but it has continually impacted in me (us) in diverse ways; by the good works of Aunty Eunice, I can proudly boast of how to manage my time well and how to engage in group studies as well. In addition, especially how to write resume or cv, she tirelessly took us through this topic. Above all, one significant thing I have gained from EPI is the yearly vacation training that we are being made to undertake. It has really enlightened me in broad spectrum about how my future career of being a pharmacist would be. I am so much grateful for the wonderful support that EPI to her beneficiaries and I hope it would continue to touch the lives of many.
In summary, in fact, EPI is the best in reaching to the needs of brilliant but needy students.
Long Live EPI and Her Workers. God bless you.

I am Ntelikime Francis M-mebi, a fourth year student in the University of Ghana, offering BSc. Administration. I have been a beneficiary of Educational Pathways International (EPI) scholarship for four years. The scholarship has rekindled in me the hope of a brighter future and a better tomorrow.
When I finished senior high school, I had good grades. But, how to further my education was a big challenge. I did not have any funds and my parents could not help. But I was so courageous. I knew about scholarship schemes that helped students from homes of financial challenge to achieve their dreams. So I applied to the University of Ghana, where there exists several scholarship schemes for brilliant and needy students.
When I gained admission into the university, my next priority was to obtain a scholarship because I knew that without funding from an external source I would not be able to complete the university. I went to the internet and read through all the available scholarship schemes for University of Ghana students. After reading through them I finally settled that I was going to apply for Educational Pathways International scholarship because it was the scholarship that best suit my situation. And I was right!
Unlike other scholarships, Educational Pathways International scholarship provides full funding to its beneficiaries. I have been receiving funds for my tuition fee, accommodation, books for my programme and my personal upkeep from my very first year in the university through to my fourth year now. I have stayed on campus without having to worry about where to get funding for the next year’s expenses. Not only providing funding for students, the scholarship also makes constant arrangement to guide its beneficiaries through their career paths by providing us skills training, assisting us to get internship opportunities, and monitoring our progress in our academics and work experience through internship reports. What is more? I have had a peace of mind to focus on my studies after gaining the EPI scholarship.
Gaining EPI scholarship does not only benefit me and my family, but also the entirety of my community. Being the first person in my community to further my education after senior high school, I would continue to work hard to attain higher heights on the academic ladder to be able to help alleviate poverty in my community.
Educational Pathways International Scholarship is not only helping individuals to achieve their dreams, but also helping to bridge the inequality gap that exists between the rich and the poor in Ghana. Thanks to the Donors!

I am Ntelikime Francis M-mebi, a third year student offering BSc. Administration in the University of Ghana. I got enrolled on Educational Pathways International scholarship in my first year and has since been a beneficiary of the scholarship till now. I have benefited a lot from the Educational Pathways International scholarship.
Being raised from a peasant home, I never got it easy paying my school fees. When I finished senior high school, I got stranded: I got very good grades but could not continue my education because I did not have the needed funds. My family too could not support me because of its weak financial background. I did not also want to enter college and stop halfway. What should I do then?
I consulted one of my former teachers who encouraged me to apply to University of Ghana where scholarships are available for brilliant but needy students. Then, I went on the internet to see the scholarships that are available for students in the University of Ghana. I got a list of scholarships on the internet, but guess what, Educational Pathways International was the only scholarship scheme that covered full funding. Then I gathered courage to come to the University of Ghana.
I had to go borrowing money from different sources to be able to make it to the university, because I was certain that I would gain the Educational Pathways International scholarship. And truly, I got enrolled on the scholarship till date. Then, I heaved a sigh of relief. The scholarship refunded my admission fee making it possible for me settle my creditors without any difficulty.
The scholarship indeed provides full funding: it covers the tuition fee, accommodation fee and even academic miscellaneous expenses. From first year till now, I never hustled to pay my fees. EPI scholarship gives me an amount that is enough to pay for tuition, accommodation, and to buy books to ease my studies.
The scholarship enables students from poor homes to have access to education and to realize their dreams. Let me mention that I would have dropped out of school if I had not got the Educational Pathways International scholarship. Being the first person in my family to go to school, I could not have continued my education without any external support. My dreams would have died out. But with Educational Pathways International scholarship, I am moving on a smooth pace in my education. My dreams are gradually being realized: to finish school and to bring light to my family. Thumbs up to Educational Pathways International scholarship donors for their funds have helped in bringing me from nowhere to somewhere now.

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 some 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.
