Angmortey Jonathan, a former Dome Faase M/A Basic School pupil in the Greater Accra Region, has received financial help from a local charity following an appeal for help.
The orphan excelled in the 2022 Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) with an aggregate of seven.
He gained admission into Accra Academy Senior High School but faced financial challenges that would've prevented him from continuing his high school 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 read.
Rachel Ankomah, a Ghanaian blogger and marketing manager, highlighted the boy's situation in a Twitter post, which gained traction online.
Angmortey Jonathan gets help from Christ Addict Ghana
Following the appeal for financial aid, Christ Addict Ghana, a non-profit organisation founded in 2016, donated Gh¢10,000 to cater for all the educational needs of Jonathan Angmortey.
The kind deed was a collaboration between the charity led by the President, Caleb Dande, and other executives, Joel Tawiah and Sylvester Bapajie, in alliance with the Old Students' Association of Accra Academy and the administration of Accra Academy.
Christ Addict Ghana is a Christian Youth Club and NGO focused on significantly impacting the lives of the youth and underprivileged in African communities.
In a Twitter conversation about how she feels about helping the deprived orphan get support, Ankomah said:
"It's always been my dream to help the less privileged in our society. I'm pleased I could help out in my own small way. Seeing the contributions made me appreciate and be grateful to God and those who contributed.
''Without their sacrifices, another future leader would have lost an opportunity to further his education and fulfill his dreams,'' she told YEN.com.gh.
