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

Gods Miracle

The problem started when my father lost his job in 2009 life had to change in many ways we were staying near our school because my father was able to pay the rent. When he came back at home we were forced to move to another estate, which houses were cheaper. The place was too far for me that made me to start coming late to school, not finishing homework. These were many changes that made teachers to start asking many questions. I was not afraid to tell the whole story because I was affected in many ways. One of the teacher decided to take me to his home and started staying with her. Life looks good and now I am staying with her preparing to do kcpe this year. This mama has helped me so much and I praise God. Bring for her my way. I pray for her daily it is now two years since she took me.
