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

Determination Holds The Key To Success

My name is Jonathan Bulungu. As a pastor I have always respected congregational efforts. Tried in all forms, collective power only yields results. In2003, I joined Chende Kalaha Self Help Group to find it a little ocean in which i could immerse my problems. It woked. The joint funds we raised through merry go round, always marked out like it wa too much, given to individuals in turns. It helped me to construct a big house when the old one was just falling on us. I also bought 3 animals as I got my turns of the merry go round funds. I have permanently switched positions in life as a result of this group. I believe we should get sponsors to take us to the next level.
