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

An Organization To Educate Needy Children.

In the Western Region of Kenya, poverty is a thorn in the flesh of the people living here. As a result of poverty most people are not able to acess the best education facilities, they lack food and this has direct impact on t he morals of the growing children. In order to reduce the level of school drop outs due to lack of fees and other basic education requirements, an organization called Koloch Child Development, located in Chenora assists needy students financially and orally. The students aged between six years and twenty one years are given financially support through their education system. In addition to that all the children registered by that non- govermental organization meet every Saturday for guidance and councelling. Here they taught morals and virtues of good living.\The organization also assists these students attain some trainings like computer carpentry before they join the higher levels of education
