Ghana Teacher is getting lot's of love from all over the world
Teachers are the biggest examples of making impossible to I AM POSSIBLE. One live example is Richard Appiah Akoto. Who's teaching computer without equipment but on a blackboard.
With just a blackboard and a talent for drawing, a Ghanaian teacher has explained in detail to his students the secrets of Microsoft Word, earning numerous headlines and worldwide admiration.
Now Richard Appiah Akoto, who gained fame last month for teaching computer technology without computers at Betenase M/A Junior High School in the southern Ghana town of Sekyedumase, is starting to appreciate the fruits of his unexpected media attention.
People and organizations are donating desktop computers and laptops to his school. And, as part of Microsoft's promise to offer him free training, Akoto was flown to Singapore to attend the annual Microsoft Educators Exchange.
The tech giant had pledged to equip Akoto with a device from a business partner as well as access to the Microsoft Certified Educator Program (MCE) for professional development.
After reading the Facebook post that made Akoto famous, a Saudi benefactor at the University of Leeds in the UK sent him a laptop "as a small gift to his students."
Inspired by the teacher's story, NIIT Ghana, a computer training school based in Accra, donated five desktop computers to the school, along with books and a laptop for Akoto.
