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


Kibera Church of God is oneof the first schools to be established in Kibera with the aim of educating the younger population and it started as a non-profit making organisation. It is sponsored by some donners from the West and it has been a success. I myself went through my lower level education in that school and it was the best. They had one of the best facilities around and they had a lunch programme which was fantastic. We used to pay like a third of the normal fees and teh donner would pay for the rest. The school although a lower level primary school has produced engineers and engineer graduates which I believe they achieved through a strong foundation which was the Kibera Church of God. Not only being a school, Kibera Church of God is also a church and also help s the needy members of teh society. May God bless them and add them more and more to their basket.
