A young man identified as Noah Shemede, who recently built a free school, has achieved another applaudable feat.
In an interview, the young man revealed that he is the first person to build a free school boat to transport kids to school in the Makoko area of Lagos State.
Since the community is located in a riverine area, children have difficulty going to school.
Noah noticed the condition of the kids and decided to build a boat to convey them to and fro.

Noah speaks about his motivation
When asked what inspired him to do such a great thing for the kids, Noah said he believes in education and children's future.
He said no matter how a child might look, he or she can become the president tomorrow. According to him, all children deserve sound education no matter where they live, thus his reason for building a boat is to endure that children go to school.
He recognised the need for children to be able to move to school easily in the community; thus, he launched a school boat that can convey up to thirty children at a time.
