Teacher who treks 42km daily, rewarded with standing fan

A teacher who walks 42km to school has been rewarded with a standing fan, in appreciation of his dedicated service.

Awudu Kombian, who teaches at Warvi D/A Primary School, Ghana, received the gift at the parade to mark Ghana’s 61st Independence, which held on Tuesday.

Apart from travelling such a long distance, Kombian was the only teacher in the school, and also doubled as the headmaster until recently when three teachers were posted to the school.

The school, which has a population of about 74 pupils with three classrooms, was solely taken care of by Kombian for more than a year.

As a headmaster, he performed other tasks and so the school was always closed down whenever he fell ill or travelled.

“It’s very challenging but as a professional, you have to always do your best to see what you can do in the midst of the challenges.

“Every day, I have to travel about 42km to go and teach because it’s a very deprived community; and places like that, you don’t have accommodation, so even if you are willing to even stay there, there is no accommodation for you,” Kombian is reported to have said.

Receiving his award, Kombian expressed his happiness at the fact that his efforts had been recogniszed.

“The prize itself is not something that I will place much emphasis on but the gesture.

“The gesture of recognising what I have done is what gladdens my heart,” he stated.

The award was presented by the district director of education, Rev. Georgina Anaaba Norga, who asked the teacher to continue with “the good work.”
