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

Changing The Attitude Of The Society Towards The Underprivileged

The name of our Organization is Ufunguo Child Role Model Development Initiative.It is premised on the passion of moulding the underpriviledged children,providing positive self esteem to persons with dis abilities and the HIV/AIDS affected/infected to malize their potential and hence develop into responsible role models for a more productive and healthier nation in line with vision 2030. The society has for long ignored such people and subjected them to a sub-human and almost hopeless living standards.The organization has sought to change this un Godly attitude through a sacrificial approach that currently is reaching out to as many children.Academic excellence has been a direct achievement for this initiative since the last one have years since commencement.Over twenty children have so far benefitted from the programme and continue progressing under the effort of this initiative. The initiative though with limited support is determined to press forward while hoping that friends and partners may be found who may generously yelp to extend coverage to as wide as can possibly best serve the interest of the needy in our society.
