The dream of a 15 year old brilliant but needy orphan, Master Tettey Abraham Kwame, who aim at becoming a Medical Doctor in future has been revived by the staff and some alumni of his former school, Agormanya Methodist JHS in the Lower Manya Krobo Municipality in the Eastern Region.
Master Abraham Tettey, who lost both parents had aggregate 10 in the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) and was offered Science at the Pope John Senior High School at Koforidua in the Eastern Region, this academic year but could not go to school due to financial constraints.
This was after the headmaster of the school, Mr Alfred Batse had the information that the “orphan” is facing a financial challenge to purchase the items in the prospectus.
The headmaster informed his staff and some well-doing past students of the school who mobilized and presented an undisclosed amount of money to support the SHS education of Tettey Abraham.
The Staff of the school also contributed to buy mattress, pillow, bucket, soaps, shitor and an undisclosed sum of money as their widow’s mite to support the brilliant but needy boy.
Presenting the items, Rev. Nii Odartey Mark Bartlett, head pastor of the Methodist Church, Agormanya described the gesture as a true practice of Christianity and call on other individuals to help the needy in the community.
He commended the efforts of the Old Students Association and Staff of the school for reviving the destiny of the little needy but brilliant boy whose ambition is to become a medical doctor and save lives for mother Ghana.
He also pleaded with philanthropists and organizations to consider awarding a full-time scholarship to the little boy to enable him to fulfil his future ambition.
Master Tettey Abraham Kwame, in an interview, expressed his heartfelt appreciation to the people the staff and old students for the support assuring that he will not disappoint but will study hard to make his donors proud.
He also advised his junior students, especially the other orphans not to give up on their education but study hard and pass their BECE since there's always invisible help for all those who help themselves.
