My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Educational Pathways International, Incline Village, NV, USA
My name is Alidu Zulaiha a final year Agriculture Technology student at the University for Development Studies. Educational Pathways International (EPI) is a non-profit organization that makes a mandate to put smiles on the faces of brilliant and needy students by providing them with full scholarships. This scholarship covers the financial, academic, moral and social needs of these students.
From the above mention points, one may not doubt the good works of EPI to students and the world at large. Financially, Educational Pathways International makes sure that all needed materials for studies are provided for the student as well as school fees, accommodation fees, and feeding of the student are catered for. Academically, beneficiaries who find challenges in their academics are provided with extra tuition. Through a series of mentorship programs provided for us, we are exposed to meeting new people and making friends with other beneficiaries from other campuses. During this mentorship program, we are given series of interactive lectures aimed at making us better in their self-development and to the development our country as a whole. Some of the lectures are based on how to speak publicly, how to become a good entrepreneur, how to work effectively in a team, how to be a good leader and how to write a CV among other topics and skills.
I Alidu Zulaiha have been a beneficiary of Educational Pathway International for the past three years. I am in no doubt, that these years have been the memorable time of my stay in school. Within these years, my stay on campus was smooth and I had a sound mind to study, which really helped improve my academics. In addition, being with Educational Pathways International has really helped me improve my personality through the mentorship programs I have been exposed to. I have learned to be confident about who I am. I really feel unique among my colleagues looking at my experience with EPI. This is because, with EPI, every beneficiary is treated with special care and the best of it all is that, our benefactors make it a point to visit us annually and spend quality time with us. They make sure they come with a special gift for all the beneficiaries, which I really appreciate.
During my first year in the University, I nearly gave up on my dreams, due to the challenges I was going through in terms of finance, EPI is a dream reviver, it is a lifesaving program and among all it’s the best among other Organizations of it category due to it special treatment of the beneficiaries. I almost gave up my dream of being an Agricultural Researcher until EPI came my way and revived it. I am of full confidence that with this magnificent support from EPI I will definitely achieve my dream of been an Agricultural Researcher as I always wanted to be.
I am forever grateful to Educational Pathways International, because the opportunity they have given me is one in a million, and it has given my parents the chance to help my younger siblings to also continue with their education. I hope and pray that EPI will continue their good service and support to brilliant and needy students like me, so that they will also be able to achieve their dreams for the betterment of their communities and Ghana at large.
My family and I, will forever be grateful to Educational Pathways International for the support given to us. Long live Educational Pathways International. Thank you.
