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

Help That Was Timely.

My name is Lucy Aquilina formally of Namirama Girls High School. I was supported to learn there by Orphan Child Care Centre as a result of the demise of my parents. Together with me was my sister with whom we joined this orphanage in 2000. We were given full basic needs ( care, and education , from Primary up to Form 4 secondary level . I worked hard but did not do very well as I hoped to. my wish was to repeat Form 4 , score much better then go to University so as to pursue a degree in Medicine but I have been unsuccessful in finding further assistance . This Orphanage has so many children and does not allow in any people above 18 years . I pray that I may get a sponsor to help me mould my future through college.
