We believe that access to quality education is not just the responsibility of governments. Community members and organizations can pitch in to help too.

Success through our unique approach

If we can count on help from individual members of a particular community or even the global community in lieu of waiting on governments to solve the educational needs of highly under-resourced communities, that is success for us. We aim to connect helpers who feel connected to a community with the direct educational needs of that community. The helpers contribute in the following ways

Provide named Scholarships & Other Resources

We find needy students who cannot pay their fees and/or do not have educational resources like books, pens, uniform, etc and connect them with donors who are interested in their profile.

Building Libraries

For communities that do not have library spaces to serve their educational needs, we partner with them and help them raise money and rally communal support to build a library.

Providing Mentorship

We help students get connected to mentors who have experience in their preferred area of interest. For instance a student interested in Medicine would be connected to a Doctor or a Medical school student to provide mentorship and guidance.

Our approach

Results oriented

CLI will collect needs from different under-resourced communities & individuals and look for partners who want to sponsor a part/whole of that need. For example, a resident of Kasoa in Accra, Ghana can volunteer to sponsor pencils for his local public school. He or she may even volunteer to teach a lesson or two if they lack teachers. In another case, members of a community or sympathizers can contribute to build a library in their community. This is the core of our model. We connect communities to helpers to provide resources in making the basic need of education a reality for all.
