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

The Day Which I Will Never Forget

It was six years ago, when I was in standard two and my mother wanted me to have sponsorship so that they can help her manage to pay my school fees, do for me budget and other things. She took me to a place known a kibera so that I can be supported there with good samaritan who like helping children. I was lucky to get a white woman who said to be my sponser, I was happy as a kings daughter walking around the palace enjoying her self. But God did not forget me because I prayed to him every day to protect me and guide me, he send a man who told my mother to help her as my other sponcer. I started being number one from that day because my sponcer told if I be number last he will search for another person.
