After being asked what skill she would like to learn, Eniola said she preferred catering and baking. Showunmi's foundation received help from Good Samaritans and Eniola was enrolled in a catering centre.

Showunmi said:

"I took her to a catering center not too far from her school. The chief baker was elated to see a student coming to learn."

According to the young man, the chief baker at the catering centre gave them 46.1% discount because she is a widow that loves empowering children.

She has been enrolled for two years and will be finishing her secondary school education alongside her skill acquisition training.

In Showunmi's words:

"The next day, I went to check up on her. The chief baker told me Eniola resumed 7am and that she really likes her attitude towards learning."

Many hailed Michael's act of kindness.
