Make a Promise to a Child in Need:
CPI Student Sponsorships
CPI Student Sponsorships
For only $20 a month you can educate an unprivileged student in the small fishing village of Takoradi, Ghana. You'll have an opportunity to follow their progress and know how your sponsorship dollars are spent. Families residing in Takoradi's coastal community only earn enough household income as traders, workers in fishing industry, or in other meagre income occupations to just survive, with no extra for their children's education. CPI's students are fed at the school, and provided other basic needs and services whenever possible.
We have 120 additional students still in need of sponsors, as we continue to educate many youth who enroll in our school. Teaching these students is continuous regardless of available sponsorships which are sorely needed to ascertain students remain in school. Without sponsorships, students drop-out and remain at home. Parents want to provide their children with a quality education, but often cannot afford sending them to school. When students stop attending school because families can no longer support their attendance, they often result to odd jobs for pennies a day to help household incomes.
Please check CPI Facebook and Twitter regularly for photos and bios of students still in need of sponsors.
We want to thank Mr. & Mrs. Asmah of Print Ad Foundation in Ghana for sponsoring 2 of our students: Seth Dertu Gyampo and Emmanuella Elorm Amo. These sponsorships were in the form of awarded scholarships. Other Foundations, Companies, and Corporations are encouraged to support our students by sponsoring or awarding scholarships.
