Shelter, food and education for the kids
That is not all, the children have decent clothes, good food and an education to give them a life where they can compete better with their peers. Israel said his organisation’s aim is to make great leaders out of the kids in such a way that they can change their world.

Another man who selflessly helped kids
Meanwhile, Briefly News earlier reported that a journalist and former presidential spokesman, Olusegun Adeniyi, warmed hearts on social media after building a school for the less privileged kids in his neighbourhood.
According to Tope Fasua, who made the disclosure on Facebook, Adeniyi noticed that the children were not attending school so he decided to build one beside his house.
In his words:
"He noticed that there were so many children around living in the shanties around who do not attend school, so he put up a small shack on land nearby."
Nigerians on Facebook couldn't hide their joy as they flooded the comment section to commend Adeniyi for his selfless service to humanity.
