Stphen Ahenakwa handing over the items to Headteacher, Kassim Mumuni

A Teacher at the Nuria Mauzu Islamic Model School in the Wenchi municipality of the Bono Region has made a personal donation of school uniforms and sandals to 34 brilliant but needy students at the school where he teaches.

Mr. Stephen Ahenakwa used his monthly salary to procure 34 school uniforms, 15 pairs of sandals and 34 pairs of socks for the students.

Presenting the items during the Parent Teacher Association (PTA) meeting of Nuria Mauzu Islamic Model School, Mr. Ahenakwa explained that most parents have been struggling to provide the basic needs for their wards.

According to him, this has made the school children unhappy whenever they are in school.

“I have been buying school uniforms, stationery and food for students at Amoakrom and Mframaso, where I was teaching, before being posted to Nuria Mauzu Islamic Model School.

I do these things because I want to put smiles on the faces of my needy but brilliant students”.

He further said, ”I have been in their situation during my elementary school days, so I appreciate their struggles, the reason I offered to be their second parent anytime they are in school’’.

Receiving the items for the students, the Headteacher of the Nuria Mauzu Islamic Model School, Kassim Mumuni, commended his colleague for taking a keen interest in the development of the school children.

He said the children become happy and perform well when they get the necessary items for school.

He stated, ”my fellow teacher, Stephen Ahenakwa, has lifted the burden off the shoulders of some parents by procuring the uniforms, sandals and socks out of his salary for the pupils, and we are grateful to him”.

Mr. Mumuni mentioned lack of furniture, absence of a fence wall, inadequate teaching and learning materials, and dilapidated school mosque and kindergarten block as the main challenges of the school.

He, therefore, called on the government, Non-Government Organisations (NGOs), and philanthropists to help fix the challenges for effective teaching and learning.

The Headteacher further appealed for the extension of the school feeding programme to the school. 

Bono Regional Manager of the Islamic Education Unit, Abdul Mumin Sampane, who was at the meeting, commended the benevolent gesture of Mr Ahenakwa.

He encouraged other teachers across the country to be more interested in the personal development of their students.
