What People Say
Read what our valued beneficiaries and partners have to say about us
Igniting Dreams aided me to discover myself and unleash my full potential. After attending the first edition of the program, I went ahead to establish my own enterprise and later organized the Upper West Students Excellence Awards. I have since attended all of the four editions of the program. This program is very impactful and a must-attend.
The Igniting Dreams Program helped develop my self-confidence level and public speaking skills. The prize money also helped me register my business and purchase additional training equipment to reach out to more trainees and increase my revenues. It has also further exposed me to many business opportunities and believe me, my business has never been the same ever since my first encounter with CPI and the igniting dreams program.
