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

Hope At The End Of The Tunnel

My name is Wisley Mukoto of Hope in Zion Child Care centre in Kakamenga Central. For over the last 5 years, this institution with the interest of the child at heart has on the ground in Mwiyala to ensure that the neglected children , orphans and vulnerable in our society are consindered and defended accordingly.Through their position of shelter and food, clothing, education, medication etc. I have been a beneficiary since 2008 when i had no one to take care of me being an orphan. They have taken me to school, where i have continued gaining knowledge day by day and my dream to become a teacher in future is sure to come to pass. we really need sponsors who can continue strengthening the capacity of this institution to help even more needy children.
