Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

Childrens Home

After the post election violence it so many people displaced from their homes and from their families this saw many children left alone and not knowing where to go next.Many of the children looked for organizations which were around and they came across community transformers which dealt with the community but at that moment they didn't have a rescue home for the children since everywhere it was full and the children didn't go away but clinged on to them this made them come up with a childrens home where the children would find a home and love which is necessary.
