This boy sells home-made food every day for his own education.
Poverty has been a problem affecting the education of children all around the globe. Every parent wants the best for their children. They want them to be someone so that they can fulfill all their dreams. They always want to give them the education that will take them far up in society.
Unfortunately for some families, though, education is something that is not easy to give. Some parents would rather buy food with the little money they get, instead of sending their children to schools they could not afford.
These pictures were taken in Marikina, Philippines where the boy was seen selling food in the streets while on a bicycle. The food he sells is specially made by his family, and he sells them to help his parents send him to school for his own education.
While most students today take education for granted, there are young ones who choose to do something about it. Today, students can’t wait to finish class and play in computer shops, or go out with friends before going home. But this young man decided to do something that will change his life. As rightly said by Mahtab Narsimhan
“A good education is the most powerful tool to eradicate poverty and ensure better life.”
He has to be a living example to children out there today so that they can realize the importance of education in today’s world.
