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

My name is Tonic Ateku. I am a boy aged 16. I have a brother by name Twon with whom we came to stay in orphans child care Home in Kakamega Central District. Being opharns, left at a tender age we were subjected to a harsh enviroment which trained us that it is good to struggle in life. Our relatives hated us and mistreated us until a door opened for us to be supported by opharn child care Home. This home has given us hope. We get our provision for survival, basic needs and education. I am in Mukumu Boys High School where I work very hard. I intend to become a surgeon upon my completion of my school/ education.
