Teaching is a noble profession that calls for humility and patience. Teachers have on several occasions taken to the street to demand pay rise from the government. Teachers are not paid handsomely like doctors even though they are the light of society. The salary is even less for those teaching under the Boards of management, BOM.
Planning is the key to success. Even the little money can work wonders if properly used as has been shown by a young practicing teacher. He wrote on his Facebook page and I quote:
"I was working as a B. O. M teacher a few years ago. I knew Financial discipline despite the challenges at the workplace. I managed to save a few hundreds of thousands from a salary of 24k, bought a small piece of land, built a small house then. The house has so far consumed 460,000. The final design was my dream house but the blue-roofed one is what I managed. One day, I will be able to build a big, family house in a pristine area. Keep dreaming." He shared the photos below;
Kenyans showered him with praises for such good progress in life. Others as always questioned the amount of money he claims to have used to where the building has reached.
