Microsoft donates Laptops to Ghanaian School where Teacher drew Microsoft Word on Chalkboard



“From zero to hero,” a Facebook user commented on Ghanaian teacher Richard Appiah Akoto‘s photo of his drawing of Microsoft Word on the chalkboard.

Why? Because since that photo of him went viral, Akoto has attended the Microsoft Global Education Exchange Summit in Singapore, and has received a donation 27 laptops for his students from Microsoft.

Akoto, on his Facebook page (Owura Kwadwo Hottish), announced that Microsoft donated 27 laptop computers, 1 projector, 1 printer, 130 mathematical sets, and 130 school uniforms to the school.

Akoto also shared photos of his students getting acquainted with their new computers.

He wrote on his page:

I want to say a very big thank you to #Microsoft for what they have given to my school #BetenaseMAjhs. I really appreciate and God richly bless you all abundantly.
Microsoft u do all. This will go a long way to support the teaching and learning of #ICT in the school.

People come on blogs and entertainment websites to be updated on what’s happening currently but this right here is the exact opposite. Bellanaija you can do better than this.

    This is what dedication and commitment can do for a person. What you do when no one is watching matters. I’m so happy for him and the students.

    Ghanaians should learn a thing or two from Nigerians. We don’t criticise your people on your blogsite, we talk, criticise ourselves more than we do outsiders. We poke fun and also know how to laugh it off. We are not what you say behind us, even though you dont want to believe that. You read our blogs and take inspiration from our fashion and lifestyle. Any wonder how aso- Oke is now their favourite for traditional marriage. All my Ghanaian friends won’t stop identifying or associating us with fraud, we don’t bother but laugh it off because it’s foolish to think a whole nation like yours is made up of Saint. We love everybody regardless of race, colour and background. We are very accommodating and blend easily with other Africans. Hating and judging people you learn from or associated with is cancerous.

    Microsoft always gets updated with what is happening in the world and by this, it got to know about this the Ghanaian school where MS office used to be taught on the blackboard and to maintain the name of the Microsoft, it has to give the laptops to the students of that particular school.
