The young Isaac Coffie who graduated from the Methodist Senior High School in the Central Region has been forced to teach a private primary school in the Central Region where he earns GHS50 each month; almost the same amount he spends on transport to the school in a month due to poverty.
His plight was brought to the fore on Tuesday through a media publication on myjoyonline.
Isaac scored 7A’s and a B in his West African Examination Certificate Examination but had to give up the dream of furthering to the tertiary level due to his family’s financial situation.
Calls has since been made to support him.
Ashesi University in a Facebook post called on stakeholders to encourage Isaac Coffie to apply for the school’s scholarship offer.
Isaac Coffie stands to gain full or partial financial support to cover tuition fees, text books, housing, and meals. In addition a brand new laptop should he meet the requirement to gain the scholarship.
Information available to 233 Live News indicates that Joy FM has expressed readiness to forward Isaac Coffie for Ashesi University’s scholarship.
