“The government is useful and I believe in them, they are trying to improve ICT for teachers and students,” he said. While this can happen in big cities like Accra and Kumasi, progress is clearly slow in rural areas. “We need well-equipped infrastructure and teaching and learning aids, and a government that has education at heart.”
Since his publication became viral, Kwadwo has received donations for laptops and projectors, which is great news for kids and the school. Kwadwo is grateful for any help given to improve his students’ experience, and plans to help other schools in the area. “There are a lot of schools facing this same problem,” he told Bored Panda. “I can also help and give some of their gifts, so that they can also benefit from ICT education.”
