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

A Changed Life

An organisation referred to as Jitegemee street children programme changed peoples' life in our community. The programme enrolled us by sponsoring our education. I was one of the enrolled student. I was enrolled in the programme when I was in standard seven When they enrolled me I had a hope of joining a secondary school and work hard in school to bright my future. My family members were happy when I got that chance. The Jitegemee street children is a blessing to the community. I had lost hope but I gained hope. The programme also changed some other people who were unable to cater for their education. Jitegemee programme enabled me to higher my self-esteem because I was motivated the leaders of the programme. Long live Jitegemee
