My friend Abiola lives in Nigeria, a country blighted with high unemployment and massive poverty. She grew up in these conditions when a roof over their heads was a leaky tin roof and a house made of breeze blocks. Going hungry was a constant problem and always a struggle.
A few years ago her dad left her, her mother and sister to fend for themselves. Though Mum had a job, the income is only about 25% of what they needed, so you can imagine the struggle. Even with all this adversity, Abiola saved up her pennies from odd jobs, in order to pass her test and now she has the opportunity to start a taxi business and take them to security for good. The well off always use a taxi service.
But naturally, she cannot afford a car. This is where you can help by giving what you can to build up this fund and end their struggle for good. It is the best opportunity she will have in a country that is almost impossible to find a job and the pay is minuscule if you can. Please give Abiola this chance and change her life for the better for good.
