Youth corper serving in Niger enrolls 4 needy kids in school
A youth corper in Niger state completing his mandated national youth duty has enrolled in a humanitarian course for some less fortunate children.
Collins Ode Ebuka, a generous individual, spent his personal finances to enroll four youngsters from Niger state in school.
Collins had finished his one-year National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) service in the north-central state, but he didn’t want to leave without making a difference in the lives of people who welcomed him.
Collins noticed how difficult it was for some Maitumbi children to get to school, so he chose to help the less fortunate before passing out, according to Dave Goodman Joe, who is familiar with the tale.
Narrating the story, he said:
“Collins was born and brought up in Maitumbi where he did his primary and secondary school education. He was later offered admission into UNN to study political science. He was posted back to Minna for his NYSC. After some time in his boyhood environment, he noticed how hard it is for children around him to go to school.
“This made collins very concerned and decided to pay back to the community in his own little way out of the little the society has given him, by sponsoring the registration of four children (two boys and two g!rls) into GSS Maitumbi Minna.”
