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

Effects Of Pev

In 2007 post election violence, my parents were in trouble. I was in class 6 when i went back at home and found my guardians crying. It forced me to stop going because of the dangerous things which were happening. My aunt was killed when she was going back home. It was a sad thing in our family. It forced her children's to drop out which influenced us because all the burdens was under my parents. I thank our chief for organizing for the sponsors to support them until they finished their education and enables us to proceed because we were planning to drop out from school and it has improved our family and our community making a big change.
