When I was young, I had this 3×4 plywood I picked from the dismantled wardrobe in our neighborhood. I use this plywood to make a table tennis board that I rented to my friends and other children in the neighborhood. The cost was 2 kobo while that of the adult table tennis was 5 kobo. Most of us children then were either unable to raise the 5 kobo for the adult table tennis or were not tall enough to use the board. Soon, I was able to raise enough money to make a standard table tennis board and get more money. I remembered vividly I began to support my mother’s business when I was in class three (Jss2 today).
