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

School Dropout.

I had a neibour who was ging to school but on the other had she did not have aybody who can pay her school fees. One man came to her and listen to her problem and started to pay for her fees. That girl had only one problem. Just because she did not have a parent to take care of her and tell her what is wrong and right. She started to sleep outside. Her grand mother was very old that she forget that she had a grand daughter. One week later she dropped out of school and started to walk with bad people. The reason why she dropped was that she saw that wasting her time and was always the last position in their class. She had feild exams and that man came to her and asked her to take a couse of Plaiting hair. she started going and she left know that man saw that he was wasting his money and left her alone.
