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


An organization is group of people who come together with the aim of selling goats. I had been longing for a sponsorship because i did not have any way and my class teacher came to our class with three paper and i was surprised. Because you see her with me in case there is a problem. She asked there questions but if i did not have any problem of death of parents needed assistance because my parents had no way of taken me through the secondary life i decided to be chosen as a student of need.We were a lot of people if the a sponsor to assist it will be diffuclult/ The next day at lunch time when we were taking our dish she did filtration to choose the three and i was glad to be taken as one of them. After a short while we were with our principal we were told to come with our guardians. I was glad to know that my problems were no longer there.
