Children are indeed future leaders. 15-year-old Adom Appiah not only boasts of the title of author but is also the founder of Ball4Good, a nonprofit organisation supporting communities through sports.
The teenager recently won a young hero award and a cash prize of N3.6 million to support the activities of his organisation which he began when he was 12. His organisation began as a 7th grade project, which Appiah thought to bring together local and celebrity athletes to play ball and in essence, raise money for local communities.
With the help of his mentor, Mary Thomas, he has successfully raised over N25 million for 16 local communities. His effort earned him a spot as one of the young heroes of this generation and he was honoured with a national award.
Not only is he the founder of Ball4Good, the young boy is also an author of three books including one which is titled Kids Can Change the World. His dedication to helping and inspiring young children has earned him a solid reputation and interestingly, one of his books has been accepted in the US Library of Congress.
Appiah has also made it to the national spelling bee contest and made himself and parents proud. Indeed, the sky is the limit for the likes of Appiah.
Meanwhile, Ismaila Surajo, who is fabricating mini tractors and other farming tools, has appealed to the federal government for support to enable him deepen his knowledge for higher output.
