This is what it takes Mensah to get to school since he completed college in 2009 to get to the rural schools.
He does this to bring a sense of awareness to the children about the importance of education.
He said "Teaching in rural communities is not an easy task especially as I have to swim across this river every day to get to my school. My family is very worried."
"The pupils are at a huge disadvantage because I have to teach all the classes from Basic one to six and this is stressful," Mensah stated.
Meanwhile, a survey conducted by his organization revealed more than 42,000 teachers left the profession in 2021.
Data from Social Education Research indicated that at least 10,000 teachers leave the classroom, especially in rural areas every year to seek other job opportunities.
