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

School Uniform

Am a student at Good pastures education centre which is located at Mathare North area 4. As for now am in class three and the major problem s facing me is lack of food and proper clothing. My parent is unable to buy me proper uniforms and feed me well. Sometimes i go to school hungry where concentration in class is hard because my tummy is crying for food. I do not have proper uniform i use home clothes as uniform. My request to any person who will pass through this story is that i need help because i need to be the next President of Kenya Tomorrow.
