My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Educational Pathways International, Incline Village, NV, USA
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. Land Economy at Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST). My family and I have nothing to worry about anymore as my school fees, accommodation and books are all covered as well as stipdend under this scholarship program. I now have the free of mind to concentrate on my academic work and other extra- curricular activities to make EPI proud.
Aside academic excellence that beneficiaries of Educational Pathways International receive it also impacts beneficiaries positively on other areas of their lives to make the wholesome graduates who impacts their communities and their nation Ghana positively. We attend monthly meetings every semester to be trained on the various aspects of humanity that yield numerous benefits to society. Among the various areas of endeavor are CV preparation, effective public speaking, time management, proper planning and how to prepare for interviews (these are the few that I have benefited). During our lively meetings, topics are thoroughly discussed in an interactive way to the understanding of everyone and we are encouraged to exhibit all that we have learnt for others to emulate. 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.
It is my fervent prayer that the Almighty God repays the founders, donors and sponsors of our great family (EPI) a hundred fold in this life and a thousand fold in the hereafter. May God continue to bless them and watch over them to keep on supporting and positively impacting on 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.
