Just over a week ago it was freezing cold , I mean even for us living within the comfort of our homes. Well meaning Nigerians took it upon themselves to crowd fund in other to provide warm clothing for Almajirai. This gesture is highly commendable May Allah(swt) reward them all and the donors too. Running and administering a transparent crowdfunding project, is one of the hardest things ever ... believe me I'd always opt to be just a donor if I had my way. Now the Almajiri menace is an extremely complex one, we all can only do so much. Some of us will support to keep them warm, some will support to feed a few, and others will provide medical care and even stand up for them in cases of abuse. Some of us are taking the advocacy to the policy makers , others are advocating on the community level. All these efforts are being championed by ordinary citizens like you and I. But the one entity that can completely CHANGE THE GAME is the GOVERNMENT. I mean the government who we spent hours on queue to vote for, the ones who have the mandate to steer the affairs of our nation. I am talking about the government who doesn't need to worry about what to eat, where to sleep, what to wear. Because all that has been taken care of with TAX PAYERS money. The GOVERNMENT that has just ONE job, to steer the affairs of our nation towards progress where NO ONE IS LEFT BEHIND. Including the ALMAJIRI CHILD.
