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

Hope By A Caring Centre

I am Ivy Natasha aged 9 and in class 4 with a great reason to thank God for Victorious Children's Home in kakamega East district. In 2004 they saved my life. I had no means of survival having both parents but worse than church mouse. Being old and poor they could not help me get my basic needs and so I was expossed to trouble from all sides. When I thought all was gone, Victorious Children's Home just took me in. This saved my status.With many other boys and girls they have committed themselves to support, I became a member of the family. I was given security, support and education. They have encouraged me to work hard and those ahead of us provide a good example. There are those in university, college, secondary and many more of us in primary. I want to end up in University.
