As a result, Serwaah Mankosa has been providing her class one pupils with different nutritious hot meals from her purse to supplement the food provided by the government.

Serwaah Mankosa compared the food provided by the government to the meal she gives to her students, indicating that she provides them boiled eggs, fried ripe plantain, and sachet water.

''Basic one diaries. Rice and stew (school feeding). (Facebook feeding): Boiled egg, fried ripe plantain, and sachet water.

''I had 2 new admissions today, two pupils dropped from a car to Syto. Imagine if the government takes good care of these schools, will a Ghanaian kid pay 1000 dollars for tuition in a private school, I love them to the brim. God bless all our homeland Ghana,'' she wrote o Facebook.
