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

The Corn Men And The School Boy.

One day when I was walking in town, I found a boy crying, one of his side pockets of the trouser was hanging out, when I tried to ask him what had happened he would not answer me not until I asked a nearby hawker, the hawker told me that the boy had been tricked by the conmen and took all his money the boy was going back to school, and the journey was very long meaning that the transport cost were much. I myself had not enough money to help the boy, I tried to devise means of getting money by mobilising the people around to add on what I had, good enough I got the money and gave the boy. He thanked me also took my phone number. Recently the boy now a man sent me 150,000 Uganda shillings thanking me that it was through me that he and his family are now happy.
