A Rivers state NYSC member, Ugwoke Peace Udoka has helped a little boy she saw hawking vegetables on the streets of Port Harcourt secure a scholarship.
According to her, she saw him hawking, took a picture with him and someone who saw the photo on social media reached out to help him. She wrote;
“You never know how far one thing could lead to another.
Few weeks ago, I saw him hawking vegetables on the streets of Port Harcourt, apparently, he does that to assist his single mother.
He ran to me immediately and thanked me for visiting his school the previous week to speak with them and for giving them free writing materials, including mathematical sets.
We took a picture which caught social media attention and today, he’s got a scholarship support from someone who has never met him but only seen his hawking pictures.
This boy has given me the vibe to keep going. He inspires me everyday. God bless my service year.
