I actually began 2018 volunteering with Khan Foundation as a #HopeAmbassador. I tutored children in Makoko who have never been exposed to any form of education. I was mainly responsible for teaching them to read and write the English alphabets. It was definitely the best way to have started such a remarkable year. During my time there, I came to a conclusion that people appreciate what you leave in their hearts more than what you leave in their hands. I saw firsthand what it meant to live a sacrificial life. It was also clear to me that individuals define wealth very differently. Some measure it based on their bank statements while others believe wealth comes from sharing a good dose of laughter with loved ones. The latter was their definition of wealth. One unforgettable experience was when I climbed up the wooden stairs, and up to the class room. The children started singing and chanting their “Aunty , Aunty, Aunty!!!” with so much joy and enthusiasm. It was the sweetest thing ever. Thanks to Khan Foundation for this opportunity to serve.
