He dreams of a university education to give him a better chance in life. He was admitted to study economics in 2014 but has not had the funds to pay the fees. And educational Scholarship with seedling and farm tools to start his own farming will make Joseph Ogwuche self-reliant.

    I wept hard at how joy overwhelmed them on the new opportunities offered for light at the end of their tunnel.. #ThankYouAirtel…At the end of the day, the reason we are all here, our purpose of being, is to help others find their little piece of happiness and heaven right here on earth.
