If you have been checking your social media feeds frequently, I'm sure you would've seen a meme or two on this kid. Meet Jake, a 5-year-old boy from a small village in Ghana, has inadvertently raised thousands of dollars for his school by becoming an internet sensation - entirely by accident.
The photo was taken while filming a documentary about Ghanaian-born artist Solomon Adufahs creative project Homeland Ghana. Adufah now lives in the US, but returned to Ghana to teach art and creative studies in 2015. He posted the photo to his Instagram, and somehow, the internet just could not resist Jakes face.
I thought, Im not going to respond, he said, in an interview with the BBC. But then I remember a moment when I thought, what if all these likes turned into actual funds to help?
So he set up a Go Fund Me page to raise funds for Jakes education and to support other children in the village of Asempanaye. The campaign has raised almost half of its $20,000 (USD) target in less than a week.
The little sensation is unaware of all that has happened around him, but he has been part of something very big that is helping hundreds of children go to school.
