Angmortey Jonathan, a former Dome Faase M/A Basic School pupil in the Greater Accra Region, needs financial assistance to further his education.
The boy has been admitted into the Accra Academy Senior High School after he achieved an aggregate seven in the 2022 Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE).
However, due to financial constraints, his dream of attaining an SHS education hangs in the balance.
Angmortey Jonathan appeals for help
In a letter issued on February 18, Jonathan's alma mater appealed to the public to contribute to the boy's education.

''He is an orphan under the care of his uncle, who cannot afford to send him to senior high school. We would be much grateful if you could assist him financially to further his education,'' portions of the letter said.
Ghanaian social media user Rachel Ankomah (@RachelAnkomahRL) also shared the letter and the boy's results on Twitter, which garnered reactions.
"Dear fellow Ghanaians, I now pray for your benevolent and philanthropic heart. Angmortey Jonathan is a former public school candidate who has excelled in the 2022 BECE.
"His dream to further his education is in limbo as there's no parent nor relative to cater for," she said.
Netizens react to Rachel's appeal for help
I see such posts, like how I mean how religion has failed this country. Such a person's parent should be able to walk into a Church or a Mosque and quickly come out with a fully funded scholarship.
Eiii. Even with Free SHS, people still need financial support. Yehowa.
Free SHS doesn't cover transportation, chop money, food, etc.
I just posted it on our Accra Academy old boys association platform.
My dear, remember we are in a country with no pity leaders. Imagine he's outside Africa.
