A National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) member with the Twitter name Leche Winfred Maagawa used her service year to make her immediate community better.
Perhaps more than creating a sense of unity, the compulsory one-year service programme is also a way to affect humanity more in places one would not have been to.
In a Twitter post on Saturday, September 19, the NYSC corps member posted that she is a 2019 batch C member who is serving in Bauchi state.
She said she saw that children sit on the floor to learn in a government school in the state and to come to their aid, she had to make 50 desks for them.
She attached four different pictures to her tweet. The first frame shows the student learning as they sat on the bare floor, while other pictures showed her posing with the desk.
What made her pieces of furniture really different was that she was creative enough to upcycle bike tyres, paint them into reds, greens, and yellows and convert into sitting pads on wooden chairs.
Below is her tweet:
Maaga's tweet on the micro-messaging platform has since gone viral as it drew positive comments from many.
