Ghanaian Teacher Provides Free Sewing Services For Needy Students

A 25-year-old teacher of Aboabo Presby Primary School at Akim Oda in the Eastern Region of Ghana, Janet Asibi has taken the initiative to sew school uniforms for needy students.

Janet Asibi learnt sewing at a very young age and has used her skills to sew free uniforms for students since 2019.

In an interview, she revealed she is very passionate about seeing every child in school and because of this, she does not want lack of school uniform to hinder any of the students.

“Seeing these young people, whom we refer to as potential leaders walk to school in ripped clothes compelled me to use my sewing skills “, she told Melvin Da Enigma in an interview.


“I will continue with this initiative until my last breath. It all started when I was posted to Nsoatre in the Bono Region for my teaching practice. When I reached the school, I realised that some students come to school with torn uniforms and others too with no uniforms at all,” she revealed.

“And it was affecting their education, so I took it upon myself to get a sewing machine and start stitching the worn-out uniforms. So those who were coming to school with torn uniforms, I started stitching and patching it for them.”

“Moving along the line, I realised that it was helping them, those who would have stayed in the house then will be going to school”, Janet said.

She believes that solving problems faced in the educational sector is the responsibility of everyone. Her go, however, is to introduce one student, to one school uniform in Ghana. Janet collaborates with and pays another seamstress to accomplish this task effectively. She is also very strategic about it so it doesn’t affect her teaching obligations.
