He encouraged the students to be optimistic.

“With the phenomenal developments in science, modern technology is finding very interesting ways to empower physically challenged individuals to play a main stream role in life. There are many jobs that are now possible for you to be employed in because of these advances and the future will only get brighter as some of you with your intelligent minds will eventually be part of the creative process of bringing some of these new innovations to life.”

He also encouraged the students to take pride in the fact that the Akropong School of the Blind was the first of its kind in all of West Africa founded in 1945.

The Head Mistress of the school Ms. Veronica Derry thanked Mr Bonsu for his kind gesture and encouraged other compassionate citizens and visitors alike to emulate his example and come to their aid.
