A 12-year-old Ghanaian, Hanks Abotsi, and his friend, Kevin Adiase, have applied for a job in Hank's household and plan to contribute the allowance paid to them to a church project.
In a LinkedIn post, Sharon Begah said the boy, her young cousin, and his friend pledged to contribute monthly towards a church project.
The two friends initially asked for financial support from an older relation to give it to the church. However, Sharon said she suggested that they do some chores around the house and get paid so they can give that as their contribution towards the project.
The children applied to work for Sharon in the house. She employed them and decided to pay them GH¢20 each month.
