A National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) Member just inspired the world with her touching story of her encounter with a little student who is also a hawker.
A Rivers state NYSC member named Ugwoke Peace Udoka has positively affected the life of a young boy named Victor Godswill in Port Harcourt. She was also able to help him secure a scholarship for his school.
It started when she shared a photo of herself with Victor on Thursday, May 11. She said: "Coming back from Community Primary School Rumuokwurushi this evening, I heard my name from behind 'Corper Peace, you came to my school on Monday, I was really inspired. Thank you Peace.'
"I just couldn't help but give him a mathset and books.. He's really hardworking and appreciative. For this, I purposed never to stop until the entire Obio-akpor local government is impacted."
The follow up story is even more inspiring. Someone reached out to her on Facebook and was able to offer the boy a scholarship of N50k.
Peace said: “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."
God is great! Now the boy will have more time to focus on his school work.
