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

A Help At The Right Time

It was in the year 2008 when i had just completed my K.C.P.E and the results were already out.I got a good grade but ha no hopes that i could join a high school due to lack of finance.I was not alone,some of my colleges were also in the same situation.After staying home for the first term that is form one because our parents were not able to pay for our fees,a well wisher who had seen the problem in that village,offered to take us to school for one year then the next year he would take us to a training college after form one.This was because we were four and he could not pay the fees for four years.Fortunately he got the help of other people who surpoted him to take us to school untill form four.
