CTE is a NGO school founded by professor Morphius Eurapson-Quaye as training centre in Winneba, Ghana. Here young women and men get the opportunity to complete a free of charge 3-year training with state-approved degrees. As support association we sponsor this NGO-School which is dependent on regular donations in its build-up and extension efforts, and we support the graduates to create a perspective for a self-reliant live.

Making the needful needless
From 28 October to 8 November 2019 Morphius, this time supported by his son Michael, was on tour with us in Emsland and the county. Clemens Vollmer was again his tour manager and often we started before 7 am with packed trailer and 40 drums towards Schüttorf, Lingen or the Twist.
This time, also donations in kind for a container with useful supplies for the CTE were collected in the schools. In addition to summer clothing, donations included kitchen utensils for the teaching kitchen, sewing machines for the tailoring workshop, tools for the carpentry workshop, instruments for music lessons and computers and network technology for the IT department.
The whole thing developed into a successful large-scale project, which kept us busy for several months with surprises and new twists and turns.
More about this in the report under Projects.
In any case, we are currently dependent on special donations, because the import duties, which are difficult to calculate, turned out to be much higher than all parties involved would have expected. NGO institutions do not have an easy time in Ghana.
The reserves of the association have been used up and without additional effort the planned expansion of the CTE can only proceed very slowly.
Goal: 4000 € by the end of June
for the repayment of a credit for the release of relief supplies from customs.
We are also further dependent on your donations, because the CTE urgently needs a library with reference books, the PV system is to be extended and new classrooms have to be built. The school is growing and so are the tasks for us as supporters.
The CTE deserves our support.
