Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
Sebolelo Bogoshi is an amazing person. She is a teacher in a rural village who cares deeply for her community, particularly her learners and their families.
She was very concerned as to how they were coping under lockdown and did something truly astonishing. Bogoshi identified three families that she would help with her own money and managed to get some things for them.
YEN.com.gh learned that she reached out to her community to see if anyone else needed help and something amazing happened. A woman called her and said that she had deposited R5 000 into her account so that she could buy more groceries.
She was able to help five more families with the donation.
"I'm a teacher in a rural village where most learners come from disadvantaged families. I was so worried about how they were coping during the lockdown. I managed to get a few groceries for 3 families who were indeed hungry. I asked my colleagues to reach out but don't know if they did or not. 3 days later a woman of God called me to say she's depositing more than GHC 1,500 so that I can go and buy groceries for 5 families. Indeed God works in mysterious ways. This is what I got for each of the 5 families."
Facebook users were blown away by this amazing woman:
