Tunde Onakoya shares transformation of young girl he took out of a slum and enrolled in school

Popular entrepreneur and philanthropist, Tunde Onakoya has shared the transformation of the young girl he took out of a slum and enrolled into school.

He took to his Twitter page to share old photos and to recount how he had met the little girl on the street.

According to the humanitarian, he had spotted the girl, Odunayo hawking alongside her baby brother in majidun Ikorodu – both of whom he took out of the slums.

He recounted being driven to assist her after hearing her account of being assaulted by a 40-year-old man.

Two years after moving her from the slums and enrolling her in school, Tunde reveals that Odunayo just finished her first year of school and passed her examinations.

He wrote:

“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😊

A thread…

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 sxxual 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.”
