- Melissa Pearl Adarkwah, a teacher in a rural area has revealed how she helped raise funds for the school
- Kwaku Sae Presby Primary has undergone transformation after she posted photos of the school on social media
- Her efforts for the school have meanwhile attracted criticism from some people who wondered if she was doing alright
For Melissa Pearl Adarkwah, the desire to see children in the rural areas educated comes before her own comfort.
This stems from her desire to help as challenges such as lack of furnished classrooms, teaching materials and other resources are always present in such areas.
The school, Kwaku Sae Presby Primary, is located in the West Akim municipality of the Eastern region.
More often than not, teachers are compelled to support the school with their salaries as funds are not readily available to help provide basic needs.
Adarkwah reveals that becoming a teacher was never part of her plans as she dreamed of becoming a journalist.
In her sixth year and in need of a creative way to assist with funds, she turned to social media to create awareness about the challenges the school faces.
This however came with a setback as some people raised concerns whenever she posted photos of the school online to help raise funds for items such as books and uniforms.
Kwaku Sae Presby Primary has however enjoyed a turnaround in its fortunes as help has arrived and the situation is not as before.

Shute Jr intentionally refused to shave off his hair in a bid to establish the point that his personal appearance should have no impact on his legal career.
