About us

Central Aid Ghana > About us

Introduction
The Church of Jesus Christ is the bridgehead of the Kingdom of God on earth. Thus the Church has a divine mandate and responsibility to demonstrate the wisdom and creativity of God in providing solutions to the issues of poverty, deprivation, ignorance and diseases plaguing humanity. The International Central Gospel Church (ICGC) established the Central Education Trust in 1988 to provide financial assistance to brilliant but needy students at the secondary, vocational and technical education level as a safety net for the increasingly vulnerable youth desirous of pursuing post-basic education. However, in 1996, Central Education Trust was rebranded as Central Aid (CA) and its scope of operations expanded to include relief services, social and community development, advocacy, and career guidance and counseling.

Current Mandate,
CA is a human development-oriented non-profit agency of ICGC with the mandate to coordinate and implement the church’s social intervention, action and development programmes for the benefit of our people, institutions, communities and the nation at large.

Who we are

Rationale and Scriptural Bases
The rationale for CA operations is derived from scriptures that enjoin Christians and for that matter the church to do justice, show mercy, give care to the needy, seek the interest of others, and serve others. These scriptures include:

Micah 6:8
He has shown you, O man, what is good; And what does the Lord require of you. But to do justly, To love mercy, And to walk humbly with your God?

Matthew 25:35-40
for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.’ “Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? 39Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.

Philippians 2:3-4
Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others.

James 1:27
Pure and un-defiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world.
