Yetunde said that the children always had to endure the arduous task of trekking for six hours every day to their secondary school.

Days after posting about the kids’ hard life on her LinkedIn, another kind woman, Bilqis Williams reached out to know how they could help the children.

Kind Yetunde travelled back to the village and consulted with their traditional heads on the students’ welfare.

Presented with the options of tricycles or bicycles, the village went for the latter because of bad roads and the low maintenance of two wheels.
