Teaching is considered to be one most-structured and hand-working professions and in the matter of gestures, the most Nobel.
Richard Appiah Akoto of Ghana went viral sometime back on Facebook when his pictures of teaching Microsoft-word on a blackboard using chalks of different colours was put up. He teaches at Betenase Municipal Assembly Junior High in the small town of Sekyedomase. Teaching computers and software is not easy, especially when it is done on a board without any practicality, but staying on his work – he mentioned: “I love ma students so have to do what will make them understand wat am teaching.”

Looking at this, and the determination possessed by him coaxed many individuals and organisations to help him amongst which one was NIIT Ghana’s Ashish Kumar who mentioned to a source “We saw the news getting viral on Facebook and other social media platforms. We were so touched by the teacher’s dedication to his students that we decided to support the school with the best we could do as an IT training organisation.” The man along with a group decided to donate 5 desktops, a laptop and books. Kumar said the donation was part of NIIT Ghana’s CSR outreach. The firm recently trained some 100 economically disadvantaged people in collaboration with the European Union and ActionAid.

When the donation was made, he gathered all the students and told them about the computers and genuinely his happiness could be deciphered. It is one big step for the development, and it is not less than any noble-gesture. Through this, a lot of upliftment can be made toward which we are moving as a whole and we hope that a lot faster we can achieve what we have aimed for.
