We could be a Billionaire or a Technocrat. We could be a spiritual leader or a doctor. By it any professional, nothing can actually move in this area without the blessings of a teacher. Teachers are really a form of God. They can either make us or break us.
Teaching is a profession which is driven more by passion than anything else. True teachers are a blessing. It’s a rare breed who is directly responsible for molding the future of the nation.
There are numerous stories of teachers going beyond the call of duty, in order to help their students. There have been teachers who had crossed dangerous rivers by swimming to teach, then there have been teachers who have left posh and jet-setting jobs to teach students for free. They are the people who are really bringing a change in our societies.
The current story is another such dedicated soul. His name is Owura Kwaddo Hottish, a Computer teacher from Ghana. This divine soul has gone all the way to help his students keep up the pace with the modern world. Despite being a computer teacher, his school had no computers. But this did not deter him from performing his duties.
Mr. Hottish in an example of sheer passion for teaching taught the entire MS WORD to his students using a keyboard. He also posted the pics of the same on the Facebook. Apart from getting millions of likes and appreciation from left, right, and center. Mr. Hottish also grabbed the attention of some other passionate people like him.
NIIT Ghana, the offshore firm of Indian education firm reacted swiftly to his post. They were passionate about teaching themselves and could sense what Mr. Hottish and his students might be going through.
NIIT Ghana has since then donated computers for the school. They are also setting up an ICT at the location. As a token of appreciation for Mr. Hottish and his genuine selfless efforts NIIT Ghana has gifted him with a new laptop and a free computer course for him.
We really appreciate the benevolent actions of both Mr. Hottish and NIIT Ghana. Education is the only weapon that can kill evil, and warriors like these are the need of the hour. We wish the very best for people of Ghana, Mr. Hottish, and Team NIIT. Keep up the good work.
