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

The Sponsorship

I was a pupil in standard seven, i was doing well in my studies but not really, because most of the time i was being sent home to bring school fees. One day carolina came for kibera, came to our school they were a sponsor who was sponsoring children and thats why they came to our school. They were choosing the best pupil from class six upto seven in our school,and was among them who got the sponsorship. they were paying two thousand shillings for two terms but this year they increased three thousand for three terms. And now i am doing well because i am concentrating in my and i always thank the sponsorship for being kind to slum children and they helped many children apart from me.
