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

Education

After my KCPE exams I had no one to pay school fees despite the fact that I had passed. I was so sad because my future hopes and dreams were going to be no more without education. One day during february this year my former head teacher introduced me to someone he said was willing to pay my school fees. This someone was the director of an organization called wewasafo and his organization was sponsoring needy students and paying their school fees. In their list of beneficiaries this year, the head teacher told me that I had to be fixed so that I dont miss my school. I was very happy because even though I joined late for the first term. I was going to study and continue my education. Thank you
