The ten-year-old boy who lost his two arms in an industrial accident, Ojo Sanya, has been enrolled into the Ondo State School for Special Needs, Ikare-Akoko.
The Hope had reported that the boy was an apprentice at a branding mill in Ipele, Owo Local Government of Ondo State when he had an industrial accident.
Ojo said he dreamt of becoming a medical doctor, but his dream was cast in doubt when the accident that claimed his two arms occurred.
However, help came his way as the Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI) Network Ondo State initiated the ‘Hope for Ojo’ campaign to raise an education endowment fund for him.
Speaking with The Hope, the Coordinator of the group, Ayodeji Amos, said the group considered it important to give hope to Ojo despite his disability.
“He said he wanted to be a medical doctor, but since his accident, he was not enrolled in any school and was living with his elderly grandparents.
“That will not guarantee a bright future for him. As a youth group, we considered it imperative to give the boy hope for a brighter future,” he stated.
Amos appreciated the Ondo State government through the Ministry of Education for admitting Ojo into the special school in Ikare-Akoko.
