Sister of Charity Associate Father John Amankwah, a professor at Mt. St. Joseph University, is originally from Ghana in West Africa. He established a 501 C-3 called International Mission for Children (IMC) for the purpose of building schools in developing countries. Recently Father John and Sr. Caroljean (Cj) Willie, a member of the board, traveled to Ghana to meet with the Bishop, local Ashanti chief, and contractor to discuss plans for a school in the village of Kwapia. While there they toured the land a local chief has donated for the project and talked with a number of adults and children about their hopes and dreams for the future. IMC hopes to construct a school for students at the elementary through secondary levels and is currently writing grants and sponsoring a variety of fundraisers to provide the necessary funding for the project.
