This Child Travels by Donkey to School in Limpopo

The above picture is of a primary school child who comes from a very difficult background and being unfortunate that he lost both his parents at a very young age.

This child is an orphan since he lost both his parents. He lives with his aunt who takes care of him in Muremelani village in Limpopo. The child goes to a primary school that is in a nearby village in Tshiheni village.

It is an every school day thing that the child travels by donkey to get to school since Tshiheni is at a distance from Muremelani. His story was shared by Kamo Marven who is a possible neighbour or an influencer who was trusted to make this public.

It was not made clear if the child does earn foster care that could at least help him with some things like uniform or even pay transport for him to get to school.

Many people were touched by the child's situation and asked how to get in contact with him or his foster parent in order to help him with what they can. Kamo then revealed his aunt's contact number whom people can reach whenever they wish to help him.

It is amazing how courageous this young boy is and how much he loves school and makes means to get to school somehow. Probably he uses a donkey so that he does not get late for school as well as not to feel the distance as much.
