Images showing Akoto drawing a highly detailed diagram of the Word interface on his blackboard in order to teach his pupils about the software inspired people around the world, with many donating computers to his school.

Dedication can do wonders and the most recent example of this is Richard Appiah Akoto, a computer teacher at Betenase Municipal Assembly Junior High School in Sekyedomase.

Since his story went viral, computers have been flooding in. According to an NPR report, Microsoft spokesperson Sarah Alamshaw said that that the company will give Akoto a laptop and a voucher for professional development training under the Microsoft Certified Educator Program, to help him better integrate ICT into his teaching.

For his hardwork and commitment in teaching Information and Communication Technology at the Betenase M/A Junior High School in the southern Ghana town of Sekyedumase, without a single Computer, Richard Appiah Akoto, has attracted help in forms of computer systems to the rural school.

A Saudi benefactor at Leeds University sent him a laptop "as a small gift to him and his students" after reading about Mr Akoto's equipment shortage. "It really shows the awesome innovation and commitment and passion that teachers have for helping their students get ready for the future", said Salcito.

He got social media attention in February 2018 after a picture of him sketching out a mock-up of a Microsoft Word screen in coloured chalk on his classroom blackboard.

"At Microsoft, we believe that educators are heroes and are pushing the boundaries of what is possible to transform learning and making a direct impact on the experiences and lifelong skills of their students". "He gathered everyone and told them about the news computers", said Kumar. "I drew the features and labeled them correctly so that they would know what-was-what".

'I love my students so have to do what will make them understand what [I] am teaching'. After a three-day conference in Singapore, at which he was given a standing ovation, the 33-year-old said the donations meant he would never have to resort to a chalkboard again. He is the one who made a decision to sponsor five new desktops and books for the school and a new laptop for the teacher as a part of our social and corporate responsibility, ' Kumar added. "We will have computers", noted Akoto.
