An Idea Worth Remembrance

I was in my home place when my father came about with an idea on how to organise for an orphanage home since the area was greatly affected by Aids Burning down Youths,But what did no greatly favour our idea we had no funds to build houses & schools. I had a back up idea on how to gather for funds & grands but my mind told me that my Dad wont agree with m idea of picking used up plastics & organising cleaning activities with the orphans for payment.I gained up courage & faced my father and he aggreed about an year we cam about with ksh 300,000 & buld schools & houses for the Needy children & orphans $ also brought this idea to the government & it helped us with the funds.
