The Bekwai Central Seventh-Day Adventist Church (SDA) in Asante Bekwai of Ashanti Region has launched an education endowment fund to support needy.
Bekwai West District Pastor, Ps. O.B Emmanuel, said the fund was established with the purpose of assisting families who had difficulty paying for their children’s education.
According to him, the church will investigate to determine if one merited assistance. He noted that education was one of the pillars on which socio-economic development was built.
The church’s targeted amount for the education fund is Ghc 100,000.
He was of the view that under no circumstances should financial difficulties impede the educational flow of a determined student.
He urged other religious organizations to also take up the charge of helping to get the youth of the country educated.
Ps. Owusu Boahen Emmanuel entreated students who would benefit from the funding facility to study hard and make their families and the church proud.
