Daniel Rouamba, a young Ghanaian from Agona Nkwanta in the Western Region, faces a possible truncation of his education due to financial challenges even though he scored 8As in the 2023 WASSCE.

One of his basic school teachers, Stephen Essilfie, recounted that Daniel lost his mother, the family's primary breadwinner, while in class 5. He only had his father, a bicycle repairer, to cater to him.

He nearly withdrew from basic school in his sixth year because his father could no longer afford the fees.

However, Daniel faces a new challenge: financial constraints, which will hinder his education if he does not get help.
