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

Hope Revived

Life is full of struggles and at times we feel discouraged because of the happenings and the things that unfold around us. To me it was a moment that i really knew that my life had finally come to an end as we lay both of my parents down to the grave. After the burial, I sat by myself and started piting myself because there was actually nothing left for me to live for and for a moment I thought of committing suicide. Two days after the burial, the director Neema Women Group Mrs Mary came and after a long chat she consolled me and even took me with her and they started to sponsor my education and today I have a new family the Neema Women Group.
