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

Giving Hopes

Giving hope is that i believe i was born to do.I remember early this year i met a man by the name Leornard.He was really down because since he left the university ten years ago, he had never got a job. He even hated life and was thinking about committing suicide.I talked to him and shared with him how life was full of opportunities .I opened his eyes and told him that not all great people or rich peopld were the ones in the offices.I asked him why he really focused on being employed rather than doing something that you will employ people. He got out of that place full of ideas and with the little money he had he began a business the following month in February and he has great hopes that before the end of the year his business will be great.
