Young girl who was rescued from being homeless passes her first exam in school, set to become a successful artist
Odunayo, a young Nigerian girl who was saved from homelessness and enrolled in junior school, recently completed her first exam.
While she was selling fish on the streets of Lagos, Odunayo was saved by the kindness of Tunde Onakoya. According to Tunde, Odunayo and her brother were saved two years ago when they were hawking instead of attending school.
He narrated that Odunayo had been a victim of several waves of abuse as a result of her inability to enrol in school. “It was on this day I swore to be a part of lives and keep them safe forever,” Tunde said.
He later sponsored her education through a fully funded scholarship and two years after, he shared Odunayo’s progress on his Twitter handle. He said; “Today makes it exactly two years since I met Odunayo hawking fish on the streets of majidun Ikorodu street with her little brother. A lot has happened since then, but two weeks ago, she completed her first year of school and passed her examinations.”
“She’s now growing into a young confident Lady who loves to play chess and video games,” he added.
