Emmanuel Tuloe, who drives a motorcycle for a living, has won recognitions and extensive media coverage for his principled act.

“One day passed when they were discussing about the money, and the woman was crying and begging the person that found the money to bring it back, and I went back to my aunty and told her that the money I gave her, they are asking for it so we took it back to the woman.”

According to the teenager, he had earlier received series of insults from friends for returning the money

However, his gesture won the heart of President George Weah who invited Tuloe and offered him a $10,000 reward for his honesty.

According to the World Bank, 44 percent of Liberia’s population lives on less than $1.9 a day.
