“From zero to hero,” a Facebook user commented on Ghanaian teacher Richard Appiah Akoto‘s photo of his drawing of Microsoft Word on the chalkboard.
Why? Because since that photo of him went viral, Akoto has attended the Microsoft Global Education Exchange Summit in Singapore, and has received a donation 27 laptops for his students from Microsoft.
Akoto, on his Facebook page (Owura Kwadwo Hottish), announced that Microsoft donated 27 laptop computers, 1 projector, 1 printer, 130 mathematical sets, and 130 school uniforms to the school.
Akoto also shared photos of his students getting acquainted with their new computers.
He wrote on his page:
I want to say a very big thank you to #Microsoft for what they have given to my school #BetenaseMAjhs. I really appreciate and God richly bless you all abundantly.
Microsoft u do all. This will go a long way to support the teaching and learning of #ICT in the school.
From #ICTONTHEBOARD to #COMPUTERLAB.
GOD BLESS ANYONE WHO PLAYED A KEY ROLE TO MAKE THIS A REALITY.
