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

A Friend In Need Is Friend Indeed.

It was in the year 2009 when people did Kenya, Certificate of Primary education. pupils waited for their results to come. The day for reporting to high school came. One boy in our residence who was orphaned could not go to school because of lack of school fees. This boy stayed home for about two weeks. Luckily enough, one day a good samaritan was passing by their homestead. The man saw the boy sitting on a chair infront of their house. The man went to him and asked him why he was not going to school. The boy said he didn't have school fees. The man introduced him to a youth project to pair for him school fees and now the boy is going to school.
