THE Trinity Congregation of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana at Kwashiman in Accra, has relaunched its scholarship scheme.
The scheme, which was initially launched in 2001, was meant to assist brilliant but need students of the church to further their education.
The relaunch was to raise an additional GH¢6,000 for investment to support more students as well as to save the scheme from collapse.
William Kwasi Bosompim, Chairman of the Scholarship Scheme Committee, said the demands on the scheme had compelled the church to relaunch it and raise more money for investment in order to make the scheme self reliant and vibrant.
Currently, he said the scheme was sponsoring seven students and had another seven on waiting list. “We have sponsored over 20 students from the junior high school to the tertiary level and others through apprenticeship.
He said the initial fund was exhausted and it is therefore imperative for the committee to appeal to the church for more support.
The Parliamentary aspirants of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Ashford Tawiah Smith and Joe Appiah respectively, appealed to the congregation and their supporters to be united and eschew all forms of violence.
They explained that the two parties were all seeking the welfare of the public but from different perspectives.
The aspirants called on their followers to support them with their prayers and make the December poll peaceful and violence-free.
