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

Helping The Vulnerable

My name is Namunu Sarah. Am 14 years old. I was got from the streets of Jinja town where I could get what to eat from the rubbish pit. I was told of a good home which could help me and that was none other than Child Restoration Outreach. I joined in 2001 and they have helped me in many things and among these include: giving me clothes, taking me to school, they gave my parents capital to start business because they were also getting food from the streets in the rubbish pit. Currently am in Primary six, and they have got me sponsors who are educating me and providing me with scholastic materials.
