The plight of a female teacher who rides 16km of bicycle to Kwasu-Agya Basic School everyday

In the quiet village of Kwasu-Agya, nestled amidst the lush greenery of the countryside, lies the Kwasu-Agya Basic School. Within its walls, a tale of perseverance and determination unfolds every day, embodied by one remarkable individual: a female teacher who defies the odds by riding her bicycle through muddy roads to school.

The plight of the female teacher at Kwasu-Agya Basic School, located in the village of Kwasu-Agya near Tepa in the Ahafo Ano North District of the Ashanti Region, is challenging. In a community where access to transportation is limited and the nearest town is miles away, commuting to work becomes a daily test of endurance.

For this teacher, whose name is concealed, the journey begins before dawn breaks, as she mounts her trusty bicycle and embarks on the solitary path to the school.

The road ahead is rough and uneven, dotted with potholes and obstacles that threaten to impede her progress. Yet, with unwavering resolve, she presses on, her determination fueled by the knowledge that her students await her arrival.

But beneath this picturesque facade lies the harsh reality of her daily struggle. The meager salary she earns barely covers her basic needs, leaving little room for luxuries such as a motorbike or car. Thus, the bicycle remains her only mode of transportation, a symbol of both her resilience and the challenges she faces.

Despite the physical exertion and discomfort, she arrives at the school with a smile on her face, ready to impart knowledge and inspire her students. She knows that education is the key to a better future, not only for herself but for the generations to come.

In the classroom, her dedication shines through as she engages her students with passion and enthusiasm. She believes in the transformative power of education and instills in her pupils the values of perseverance, resilience, and hard work.

Additionally, she teaches in a dilapidated building and the school is forced to close  immediately it threatens to rain due to the corroded roofing sheets of the building.
