Inspiring! This 8-year Old Boy aims to use Boxing as a way out of Poverty | WATCH




This documentary tells the story of children in the slums with dreams of becoming great in life and how poverty stands as an hindrance to their ambitions.

Using 8-year old Sultan Adekoya as a case study, the documentary calls us to action against poverty as children are the worst hit.

Sultan is an aspiring boxer who aims to become a World Champion like Floyd Mayweather, and just like everyone, his dreams are valid.

Goals 1 and 2 of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) says No Poverty and No Hunger and this documentary calls on everyone to, in their own way, contribute to the attainment of these goals as well as the others.

    This is so touching…I’m proud of him. I’m looking forward to helping children living in extreme poverty, Like the video says, “if we want to end poverty one day, we must focus on the children”

    Let us help this boy to be great oooooo, before another foreign country picks him up and does it for us, and then we start trying to claim him years down the line like someone we all know. Mentioning no names but here’s a clue, first name starts with “A” surname starts with “J”. Ohhhh hell you’ve already guessed it.
