She said that she is in Primary 3, but didn't go to school today because she hasn't paid for her β€œhandwork, assessment workbook, examination fee and graduation fee”, which amounted to ₦1,000. I felt really helpless as I wasn't with any other dime on me and...

...and my colleague too hadn't no money too; we practically couldn't do nothing. I asked her about her parents, she said they were at home. As I was about to open the sachet water, she told me that she too is thirsty. I had to offer her the water I...

In a bid to get us to buy the water, she also told us that the water was very chilled and that we'd like it. At that point, all I saw in her was a poor little girl who was eager to sell the water she had and meet up with the parent/guardian's target...

I dipped my hand into my pocket and got out the only money I had on me and said to her: β€œToday's your lucky day”. Even though I wasn't thirsty, I just had to do something for her. Whilst she was still standing there, my colleague asked her if she was in school...

...She politely greeted us and told us she's selling pure water and wants us to buy. I looked at her with a great amazement; I was startled because we didn't signal her to bring water for us.

...I bought from her and she took it and drank. It was quite pitiful and I was also wondering why she couldn't drink from the water she was selling, so I asked her. She said the sachets were counted and her mother will beat her should any gets missing...

Indeed, these children are suffering. How does it feel as a parent to exploit and manipulate your child this way. I may not know the level of poverty your family is facing, but I don't think it's a gold standard to send out a minor to hawk in the street...

Indeed some are suffering. Just this afternoon, I was with a colleague in an old college classroom. A little girl of about 7 or 8 years old walked into the class carrying on her head, a bowel of cold sachet water she was hawking.
