Project Cornerstone is a chairty which Crowther & Sons support. In 1988, Ann Evans was travelling through West Africa, when she met John Mahama and Bigman. She was immediately impressed by their heart to help people from the various tribes from Northern Ghana, many of whom were living on the streets of the southern city of Kumasi. Although John and Bigman had great potential to help the poor, they lacked any resources. At that time all they could offer people was a space to sleep on the floor of a small rented church building by a busy road.
Project Cornerstone was established as a charity in 2000, with the aim of helping Ann's Ghanaian friends to fulfil their potential in reaching the poor.
THE TEAM IN GHANA
Each centre which is helped through the charity has its own dedicated team of staff. The vocational training centres have three teachers, the Agape Academy has six. These are supported by a wider team of cooks, farmers, watchmen, drivers and mangaers, all overseen by Pastor John. The teams all operate under 'The Judah Mahama Vocational Centre' a charity registered in Ghana. Most of the projects supported by Project Cornerstone in Ghana come within this charity.
HOW TO HELP
The most common way for people to be involved, is through a sponsorship scheme, either sponsoring a student place at the training centre, or a child at Kumasi Kids. Other people donate regularly through the Alternative Gift Scheme which runs each Christmas or through sponsorship of events and challenges.
