A kindhearted teacher from Ghana has set the bar high for other educators by her act of kindness and dedication. Naomi Awomeh has brought a new meaning to the word 'service' as she always strives to leave smiles on her pupils' faces.
According to a Ghana news outlet, the selfless lady who works in a small village spends her free days sewing and repairing her learners' uniforms. As if not enough, the kind woman does it all for free. During her lunch breaks, instead of indulging in a scrumptious meal, the teacher takes out her tools and focuses on stitching and repairing clothes.
While she is busy turning tatters to presentable attire, Naomi teaches her pupils how to stitch. She has become a role model to many young students who appreciate her act of kindness. While other teachers might think it's not their duty to make sure their students look presentable, this teacher deserves all the support she can get to acquire equipment that can see her work for the community expand and benefit more children.
Her story first gained traction on social media when Emmanuel Kobea, a young man who was touched by the kind teacher's laudable initiative in the school, shared her photo. "One of my daughters in the Lord, Awomeh Naomi teaches at Kubease near Ejisu. She learnt dressmaking during her vacations while in college. She in turn, teaches her pupils needle work and patches their worn out uniforms during breaks," he wrote.
