Red Cross Project

By a male, under 16 years old, in Kakamega, Kenya
Map of RED CROSS PROJECT Red-cross project is an organisation that give aid to needy people. They helped a boy who had been passed with high marks. His name was John. He was an orphan. He stayed with his maternal grandparents. His grandparents were very old that they could not afford school fees. John and his grandparents lived in a grass-tharched house. Food was also a problem to them. John's dream was to become a pilot in his future. For he was among top ten countrywide. All his time he would sat under shade and start solving his problem. He was a knowledgable person and he had self-esteem. He thought of a Red-cross project who were near their village. He went to them and explained for them in and out all his needs. They sympathised with him. They agreed to lend a hand. They made a day to do fund-raising so that John could get school fees. That was the day when John knew that his dream wold be fulfilled.
