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

A Great Chance In My Life

I am a Ugandan by nationality having 21 years.When I was in primary six at Kyanamukaaka parents, my parents could not manage to pay fees for me,so there came an organisation called Christian foundation for children and aging (CFCA) which offered a chance to students whose parents are some how financially poor, so I was given that chance to be sponsered throughout my studies. This organisation gave me all school requirements, brankets, even a tank for preserving water. There fore I completed my senior four and senior six but as per now I am still at home since the sponsorship is not sufficient for me to continue with higher institution or university.
