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

A Good Samaritan

I am a young girl in Mwiyala primary school. I lost my parents when I was in class four but now in class seven. I have been going through tuff times in my grandmother's house. I really am need in of learning but she has never been supportive. She even keeps on telling me that I am just a woman to get married than continuing with my education. She even add by telling me that she never went to school but she is there. So I should not bother her. A good samaritan who has been slowly watching me came and talked to her to support me pursue my studies. Since that time I now have peace and now have been promised to be supported up to where I wish too. She has never been a problem neither a threat to my life but a friend through a good samaritan.
