Incline Village, NV (PRWEB) January 09, 2013
Educational Pathways International (EPI), a U.S. based NGO that provides university scholarships to gifted Ghanaian student of the greatest financial need, announced today that it has received the prestigious 2012 Top-Rated Award by GreatNonprofits, the leading provider of user reviews about nonprofit organizations.
“We are very excited to be named a Top-Rated 2012 Nonprofit,” says Sara Lafrance, EPI President. “It provides recognition of our accomplishments and honors the hard work and achievements of our scholarship recipients.”
The Top-Rated Nonprofit award was based on the large number of positive reviews EPI received – reviews written by donors, board members, scholarship recipients and alliances. Less than 1% of eligible nonprofits won a place on the 2012 Top-Rated List.
"We are gratified by EPI for its work,” said Perla Ni, CEO of GreatNonprofits, "They deserve to be discovered by more donors who are looking for a great nonprofit to support. The reviews show on-the-ground results and represent a form of recognition by the community.”
EPI recognizes, supports, and empowers gifted young people from families of need in the country of Ghana through a comprehensive university scholarship program which includes financial assistance as well as counseling, guidance and support in the areas of academic performance, career development, language skills, and leadership. http://www.educationalpathwaysinternational.org
