Meet Niqodimos Samuel, taxi driver restoring respect to teachers


Melat Mulugeta

Teachers are revered for their knowledge, life, and success at preparing kids. Teachers serve social, political, farming bodies with immense flexibility and hold moral authority. But after a while, they became representatives of a strict administration, and the society degraded their value. Niqodimos Samuel is a taxi driver in Addis Ababa hoping to change this perception. He gives free service to teachers as a way to repay for their hard work and reinstate the respect that has been lost for the profession.
