A Nigerian entrepreneur and humanitarian has discovered a school in Ajegunle, Lagos state where kids of the poor who are unable to pay school fees do so with empty water bottles.
The man known as Oyiga Micheal said students at Merit International pay their tuition with five plastic bottles and he asked for financial assistance on their behalf.
According to him, the kids are asked to come to school every day with five plastic bottles for recycling purposes since their parents have no money.
Oyiga asked well-meaning individuals to support with books, writing materials, socks, and other necessary school items.
He shared photos of the school kids and wrote; “I know we are busy with elections and all, but alright I’ll need your attention.
