Kenyan school-girl photographed hanging dangerously on a fire-wood carrying motorbike has received help from a Nairobi-based Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO).
The organisation, Soles for African Child, traced the girl to her home and gave her several pair of shoes.
She has also received dozen of offers from well-wishers who are willing to support and finance her education.
The young girl who aspires to be a medical doctor told the NGO thats she plans to buy her first pair of shoes with her first salary.
A feat that her teachers who describe her as hardworking and disciplined are sure she will achieve.
13-year-old Faith Jepchirchir was photographed doubled over on a motorbike on her way from school last month.
The girl had reportedly walked for seven kilometers to help her grandmother gather firewood which she sells for their up-keep.
According to the Standard, on that fateful day, the boda boda rider offered to help ferry the firewood with the girl balancing atop the bike.
A social media user quickly snapped the photos which later made rounds on social media as jokes and memes.
