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

Academic Booster

My name is george ambiri and am a parent at Highway ECDE center.This is an institution that is significantly promoting our community and i feel it deserves all the support having led an example in matters of education.Our children are getting quality education and developing into hopefuls in a very short time.I support an orphan child called Euticus Ayugi in this school and because it is a pocket friendly institution,out not for business but has a balance between satisfying the needs of the community with quality education and resources for its own sustainability,it has been possible for me to pay for the orphan alongside two of my own and i intend to take them through the process.However it is also my prayer that if such a bright child might get a sponsor then the sky i the limit for this child whose dream is to become a pilot
