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

A Supportive Approach That Must Be Supported

My name is Clare Mwimali of Divine Providence children home. I am a form two at St. Teresa Girls. The home has supported me in my upkeep and education. I have also been lucky to be chosen by the home to be a role model with Ufunguo child role model development initiative. They enabled me to cultivate a positive self esteem an to respect myself as a human being. I used to be very shy, hate people and regret even why I was born. I thought i was only a useless thing. but when this organization took me up I discovered the other side of life will the light of God and hope. May God bless them to continues supporting as many others as possible.
