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

Helping A Child

As I can recall the day vividly it was on Sunday morning when I was passing through the market I came across to the young lady known as Faith. This girl had a lot of problems and I decided to help her. She explains to me that his problems started when she was in class five because his parents had not been able to fulfill his essential needs with his young siblings. She decided to drop out of school and go to streets were she travelled with dirty clothes and no shoes collecting food in the dust bin in order to get money for satisfaction of their family bit that was in vain. I was so disappointed when I had that she accepted me to take her to Kyethiro street children program were she was taken to dress making were she was trained and became very proud of his training were to know can help his family hence the community and his life continues.
