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

Talent Grown

To say the truth I wasn't good in books and so I continually failed in my classwork and even exams. Since class I to class eight I had never successfully promoted to another class except that my parents kept on pushing me to another class. However i was good in repairing things like radios and televions and so my grandfather noted that talent last year in December and in January this year he took me to Busia Polytechnic where am training in electrical repairing and life is just easy. Am targeting to open up my own business after the training so as to be able to earn a living
