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

A Privilege To Serve The Community

I am a social worker in a charitable children's home in Kakamega North District. As an organization with the interest of the hurting children at heart, we, Tumaini Miles of smiles, rejoice that we have had this rare opportunity to contribute to the welfare of such needy cases. We have set up the facilities that would mould orphaned children, the vulnerable and neglected children to have a shoulder to lean on including a school, health facilities and proper accomodation for both boys and girls. Even though the task is as hard as it is sacrificial, doing so as unto God just makes it worth the effort. Violet
