Tunde Onakoya, the organization’s founder, has provided an update on Odunayo, a young child whose hawking he halted and who he enrolled in school.
Two years after he met the child while hawking on the streets and enrolled her in school, he posted both old and new images of her.

She was seen selling fish in Ikorodu with her younger brother, who Tunde also picked up from the streets, he claims.
Odunayo recently finished her first year of school and passed her examinations, the chess master stated.
Tunde recalled being inspired to assist her after hearing her account of being assaulted by a 40-year-old guy.
On August 19, he posted pictures showing the before and after;
”TODAY MAKES IT EXACTLY TWO YEARS SINCE I MET ODUNAYO HAWKING FISH ON THE STREETS OF MAJIDUN IKORODU WITH HER LITTLE BROTHER.
A LOT HAS HAPPENED SINCE THEN, BUT TWO WEEKS AGO, SHE COMPLETED HER FIRST YEAR OF SCHOOL AND PASSED HER EXAMINATIONS😊
I SHARED THEIR BEAUTIFUL STORY HERE SOMETIME LAST YEAR 😊 OH HOW TIME FLIES…
I REMEMBER HOW I WOULD ALWAYS GO TO THEIR HOUSE FOR THE FIRST FEW WEEKS TO TEACH THEM CHESS AND BASIC LITERACY. SHE HAD BEEN A VICTIM OF SEXUAL ABUSE FROM A 40 YEAR OLD PEDOPHILE IN THAT COMMUNITY. IT WAS ON THIS DAY I SWORE TO BE A PART OF LIVES AND KEEP THEM SAFE FOREVER.
ODUNAYO HAD BEEN THROUGH SUCH A TURBULENT CHILDHOOD THAT WE HAD TO PUT HER THROUGH 3 MONTHS OF THERAPY AND COUNSELING BEFORE SHE COULD TRUST/TALK TO ANYONE AGAIN. SHE’S NOW GROWING INTO A YOUNG CONFIDENT LADY WHO LOVES TO PLAY CHESS AND VIDEO GAMES.
ODUNAYO AND HER BROTHER LIVED WITH ME FOR THE FIRST ONE YEAR SINCE I ADOPTED BOTH OF THEM, BUT AFTER SOMETIME I REALIZED SHE NEEDED MOTHERLY CARE THAT I COULDN’T GIVE. MY MUM TOOK ON THAT RESPONSIBILITY AND SHE HAS LIVED WITH MY PARENTS IN IBADAN EVER SINCE THEN.”
