The Kopeyia Ghana School Fund, Inc., a nonprofit charitable 501(c)(3) and nonsectarian organization, is founded on the concept of providing an excellent education to a generation of children from Kopeyia in order to enable them to demolish their hand-to-mouth poverty of ignorance, and to construct a secure way of life for their community. Our goal is to empower the people of Kopeyia to support and maintain this school by themselves for future generations. This is only possible through the hard work of a community of well-educated and motivated people.
We are implementing these ideas, and inculcating in the entire Kopeyia youth the idea that with an excellent education, they can tackle impossible tasks (like eradicating poverty) with the problem-solving skills necessary to get results.
In the 21st Century, it is not necessary to re-invent the wheel. It is necessary to share ideas with people who suffer because they don’t have access to the common knowledge the rest of the world uses to create progress. The education that KGSF has made available in Kopeyia allows that community to digest and understand new information and ideas, especially regarding farming, health and nutrition. It is also important to listen to and learn from the people of Kopeyia, as they have many valuable lessons about life and spirituality that we need to learn and work hard to incorporate into our lives.
