A young determined girl who walks over a 2 hours journey to her school to access education for a brighter future has been gifted a bicycle to facilitate her journey to and from school daily.
Sports journalist Saddick Adams took up the initiative to support the girl who he saw suffering firsthand along the road while trecking to school
He narrated the story and where it all started before leading finally here:
‘On February 22, around 6:30 am, I was on the farm when I saw this young lady who walks several kilometers from her dad’s cottage through the forest to school and back every day.
”My brother and I held a cutlass when we met her, so she took to her heels when we started interacting with her. I followed up at her school (my old school) to see her in the classroom. I told her I loved her determination and encouraged her.”
Saddick Adams recounted that he proceeded to ask the lady what she would need to still be keen on education.
”She said a bicycle is her dream. She spends over two hours walking to school and back each day. Through this thick forest alone.”
Adams narrated that her other male siblings quit schooling to farm possibly because of the stress involved, but she’s resolute.
”Today, I went back to present a new bicycle, bag, and other learning items to her in front of her students and teachers,” he said.
