All children have enormous aspirations as they grow up and work hard in school to accomplish those dreams, but not every child has the opportunity to attend school.
Many people find themselves in desperate situations and must rely on menial employment for existence, even if some are able to overcome the obstacle of not receiving a formal education and still succeed in life.
Maa Faustina, who now makes a living by selling roasted plantains, claims that when she was a child, her father told her that she should stay in the kitchen and refused to send her sisters and her to school.
She later appeared on GhanaWeb TV’s Everyday People programme and claimed, “My parents didn’t take me to school. My mother informed me as a youngster that my father had remarked that sending your daughter to school would lead to her getting married and being unprofitable to you, thus none of my other sisters ever went to school.
The mother of three furthered her claim that she had supported all three of her children through their education by selling roasted plantains, better known as “Kofi Brokeman,” for the past four years.
She continued by saying she was eager for chances outside of her current job.
