Street Needy Children

I am from Hamisi constituency. There was an organization that was just visiting schools at Hamisi.They came across a school called Edith junior Academy where children were collected from the streets and brought there.The head of the school explained about it and also told them that others were still in streets.When they heared that they decided to bring the children up by providing them with basic needs.Those at the streets were collected and the number increased to 95 children. They did everything where the head of the school thanked them.I was among them where i was brought from std 2 to up to now am in secondary school.They are still continuing with their support.
