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

Help In Time Of Need

In the year 2009, ACCESS came in handy in ensuring that the orphaned children access education in secondary and post secondary education. There was a child who was bright known as Elphes Khateta who did his KCPE education and did pass well. The boy was unable to join secondary school because of lack of school fees. They approached the organization which helped pay the fees required for the boy and as we speak now the child went to school fully sponsored by the organization. The news of the support hit the village with much happiness and joy. T he boy promised the supporters and the villagers that he will work hard to ensure that he also supporters those who would be in challenges like the one he was in.
