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

Social Support

W-Gokafogo youth group is non profitabel org and has been helping the community in various ways such as giving/taking young youths to vocation training and giving support to the needy. We have taken thirty pupils who cannot pay fees for the secondary to vocation training in the past one year with a support of world vision. But due to lack of money we stopped the project. The youths are now earning something for there living and also helping there families. We were really proud of that and the community was also proud and congratulated us for doing that in the society where the crime was inheritated from our elder brothers and sisters
