Female Corper Helps Boy Who Hawks Vegetables (photos)

The little she has done will go a long way. A Rivers state NYSC member, Ugwoke Peace Udoka has helped a boy she saw hawking vegetables on the streets of Port Harcourt secure a scholarship.

She said she saw him hawking, took a picture with him and someone who saw the photo on social media reached out to help him. Her words;
“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.
