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

Sponsering Children By The World Vision

It was some 3 month back,when the world vision offered to help the group of young children who were all in primary and my brother happen to be one of them. They offered to pay their school fees, pocket money and to distribute some animals like goats to each of them. Even blanckets matreses etc. It was successful to some children who are now being paid by them because their parents can not afford paying them in school. they are given also money for keep up, books, pens. But they are very few at atleast they are going on with their studies. Some only managed to get goats like my brother got 2 goats unfortunatly one died and it's remining one which is now pregnant. We hope it will help him in his studies in future.
