This is really an emotionally laden story of a 13-year-old boy with dreams of being a pilot but has no help from anyone.
According to the report on 3news, a young boy known as Hakeen Alhassan who lives on the streets won an essay competition organised for basic schools across the country by Stanbic Bank and he emerged the winner of that competition and was taken to China but it seems that didn’t change anything as he’s returned back to the streets.
It’s obvious the sponsorship package didn’t come with a place to stay or how he would even eat, so this young boy is still struggling in life as he sleeps on the streets with his friends every day and they wash windscreens of cars in traffic to earn a living.
The headmistress of the Airport Police C&D primary school, Mrs. Victoria Fiankor, tells TV3‘s Alfred Ocansey that Hakeem only comes to school as and when he is able to get food.
The Headmistress confirmed Hakeem is a brilliant boy, who indeed won the essay competition, and went to China but added upon his return he hardly came to school.
