Noah speaks about his motivation

When asked what inspired him to do such a great thing for the kids, Noah said he believes in education and children's future.

He said no matter how a child might look, he or she can become the president tomorrow. According to him, all children deserve sound education no matter where they live, thus his reason for building a boat is to endure that children go to school.

He recognised the need for children to be able to move to school easily in the community; thus, he launched a school boat that can convey up to thirty children at a time.
