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

Transformation Of Life Through Care And Concern

I am Faith Kahai of Tumaini Miles of Smiles Children's Home in Kakamega North District. This is a great Home. My chance to join this Home came last year,2010. They discovered that I am a total orphan and although they didn't have enough space in the Centre, they decided to take me up. Immediately they took me to their school. So they are sponsoring my education on top of meeting my daily needs of food, shelter, medication and security as well. I can testify confidently that my life has changed. I have been transformed from the life of a street girl that i had resorted to into a focused child of hope. I know this Home intends well for the whole community should it get sponsors to put in more financial boosting.
