25-year-old National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) member, Bright Martins Ekong, has mapped out his 10-month allowance to pay the school fees of one 12-year-old Sokari Wealth from JSS 1 to SSS3.
Ekong, from Akwa Ibom State and graduate of chemistry from University of Calabar, said he surrendered his 10 months allowance as a way of giving back to society as his pet project.
The family of the girl had been facing difficulties since their father’s death, and the mother cannot afford to pay her school fees.
Sokari, noted for her brilliance, is a pupil of Community Secondary School, Bukuma village, Degema council area of Rivers state where Ekong is serving.
May God reward this corps member for assisting the less privileged despite his small income.
