My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Educational Pathways International, Incline Village, NV, USA
My name is Frederick Wih Asamoah, a second 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 even as a child, that, I will become a Medical Doctor in order to save others andprevent the occurrences of such circumstances in my country. As I was growingup I found out that one of the contributing factors to the inadequacy of health personnel in my country is a results of health personnel’s moving out of their country to the develop 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 personnel 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 thing in order to 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 during a competitive interview sessions, they believed in me and the future that awaits me, I was awarded a full scholarship package covering: my fees, hostel accommodation, 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, and others. One major reason why my beloved country Ghana and Africa is under developed to some extent is ignorance. Because of this, I have purposed in my heart that after graduation my profession will not limit me.
However, with or without support I will go out to most of our rural areas to educate the 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 and others. This I believe will keepthem abreast with personal hygiene to some extent and this 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 orderto keep on with their good works and bring hope to the hopeless. LONG LIVE EDUCATIONAL PATHWAYS INTERNATIONAL
