vehicles, such as special events, direct mail, product sales, etc.

3. To take the lead in certain types of outreach efforts, such as chairing a dinner/dance committee
or hosting fundraising parties, etc.

4. To be responsible for involvement of all board members in fundraising, such as having board
members make telephone calls to ask for support, and to monitor fundraising efforts to be sure that ethical practices are in place, that donors are acknowledged appropriately, and that fundraising efforts are cost-effective.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to harness the power of quality education in the fight against unemployment and skills gaps, primarily through sustainable tourism, knowledge transfer, and lifelong learning opportunities for all.


At Educational Communities Worldwide, we believe that EDUCATION is the cornerstone of sustainable development!

There are currently 12 million young people (aged 0-14) in Ghana, West Africa and over half of this population will not have the skills necessary to participate in the emerging global workforce. EduCom.World is committed to preparing young people to succeed in a rapidly changing global economy. By this, we are applying our core skills, experience, and global reach to make an impact among the youth of Ghana - and soon all across the world - by providing full ride college scholarships to brilliant but needy students; offering free online skills development courses; tuition assistance programs for single mothers; providing free books and stationery; providing students with access to free internet services and computers; providing coaching services for students affected by COVID19-related stressors, as well as providing free PPE’s to students in Ghana, to create a safe learning environment in the wake of this pandemic.
