- It is a dream come true for a young lad as he finally gets to be referred to as a student
- This is following a lady's social media appeal after she found him begging on the street
- Good Samaritans contributed financially and other items to support the young boy
A school dropout identified as Abdullateef has seen his dream come true after months of begging on the street.
The young boy has been enrolled in school, thanks to contributions and support from kind-hearted Nigerians.
The lady who had kick-started the campaign back in May 2020 to ensure he returned to school said she had an encounter with him around March 2020 where she had gone to get ice cream.
She was reluctant at first but believed him eventually and offered him the sum of N2k.
True to his words, he started selling sweets with the money and this inspired her public appeal.
@Zaya__Armani appreciated the kind strangers for their support as she showcased the former street beggar turned schoolboy in cute pictures.
"Y’all remember our very own Boy Abdullateef...yeah ... to all the people who send in prayers and donation ... I just wanna say JAZAKALLAH KHAIR.... God bless y’all."
Many gushed about his schoolboy look as they appreciated all who believed when the appeal was made and complied.
"Good to see him all dress up looking happy. In d previous tweet seeing others saying he was unwilling to change, following through was just the difference in here I guess u can’t just give a kid that want a new part 4 him self 5k & u think that all. I believe continuation is the key."
"Good job may Allah bless you more, however I wonder why you didn’t respond to my message, when I requested for information regarding where to make the contribution."
"Wow this is so good god bless you may almighty god should give u more opportunity to do more."
Meanwhile, Briefly News previously reported that a man had shared food with money on it to beggars in viral photos.
In a post that has since gone viral, the young man was pictured preparing the food he planned to give out to people who lack it.
What got people's attention more was not just the food but that the giver placed the sum of N200 note on each plate of meal to show that he does not only want to feed them but is also interested in enriching their pockets.
