The photo has won the hearts of many
The teacher is believed to be called Madam Enyonam, teaching math without her arms – because she had none. It is reported that she is a teacher at R/C Addo-Agyiri School. It cannot be however ascertained if she is still a teacher in the school.
A hashtag which was started on Twitter, ‘#GhanaTrueHero’ sought to celebrate Ghanaians who were in one way or another, doing things for the greater good without considering the lengths they had to go to achieve their aim.
The photo, ever since it was posted, has won the hearts of many Ghanaians who were in awe and were amazed at the selflessness of the female teacher.
Salah Farah, a Muslim teacher who died shielding Christians during a terrorist attack in Kenya, has been posthumously honoured for his act of courage.
Farah was shot after refusing to be separated from Christian passengers during an al-Shabab attack on a bus travelling from Mandera to Nairobi in December 2015.
He later succumbed to his wounds, leaving behind four young children aged between two and 10, and a pregnant wife.
He was awarded the Order of the Grand Warrior of Kenya by President Uhuru Kenyatta "in recognition of his remarkable act of valour".
