Assisting Coco to go on to further education

We are delighted to announce that KickStart Ghana is assisting Eric Coco Mawuenyegah, a KickStart Ghana board member, with his school fees to attend Ho Polytechnic. Coco has been volunteering for KickStart Ghana for five years now, most recently as Volunteer Coordinator, helping to recruit and manage Ghanaian volunteers. Coco had the following to say.

When I was least expecting to be back studying, though still dreaming of the possibility, KickStart Ghana chose this moment to make this dream come true.

I feel very privileged and lucky to be part of KickStart Ghana’s plans of raising the education standards in the Volta Region of Ghana.

I’m pursuing my HND in ICT at Ho Polytechnic, which will soon become Ho Polytechnic University. This is possible because KickStart Ghana decided to give me a scholarship. I can boldly say that with KickStart Ghana I have not just changed a chapter of my life but I have changed the whole book! I am writing a new life story.”

Thank you to all of KickStart Ghana’s supporters for working with us to help people like Coco achieve his potential.
