Make a Promise to a Child in Need:
CPI Student Sponsorships

Make a sponsorship pledge to a student who needs support to continue their education, and nutritional and health aid. For only $20.00 a month, you can make a difference in the life of a student, have an opportunity to follow their progress and know how your sponsorship dollars are spent.  Sponsors are needed to help students stay in school and continue their education. Due to Takoradi's coastal location, families of students earn little family household incomes as traders, in fishing industry, or in other local occupations . CPI's students are feed at the school, and provided other basic needs and services whenever possible. Student photos shown represent only a few of the over 300 in attendance.  Those students with "P" have received their sponsorship 'Promise' from individual donors committed to supporting the education of underprivileged youth in challenging environments. Others are still waiting for your kind support to help them remain in school and obtain a quality education.


We want to thank Mr. & Mrs. Asmah of the Print Ad Foundation in Ghana for the sponsorship of 2 of our students:  Emmanuella Elorm Amo JHS2 and Seth Dertu Gyampo.  These sponsorships were in the form of awarded scholarships.  CPI encourages other Foundations, Companies, and Corporations to consider supporting our mission to educate youth in Africa by also sponsoring or awarding scholarships to our students in need.
