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

The Good Samaritan

It was only two days to the registration deadline of the KCSE exams and at this time i had not yet only money to register my daughter for the exams. My husband had just been laid off during a retrenchment that happened in 2001 and to us we only survived and not lived. As i did everything to ensure that my daughter was registered for exams, i went to Jackyline a friend of mine to borrow from her a sum of Ksh 2000 for the noble cause. Good enough Jackyline did give me the sum and just a day to the deadline, my daughter registered and after exams the results came and surprisingly he had got an A as a mean grade and today she is a second year student in university of Nairobi doing a Bachelors degree in medicine.
