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

Supporting My Education

Am Catherine Adfok born to poor parents who struggles much to see that they pay my school fees. They could do this sometimes by brewing alcohol from which they could get some school fees for me. This made me repeat in the same class many years due to faiklure to pay the school fees for some time. Some of my friends are are now in S3. This could touch my brain a lot. Due to hard work involved in brewing alcohol, myt parents became weak and unable to pay my school fees. I sat for 2 years without going to school. I tried to help people to get some money that I may pay my school fees but all in vain. I thank RING OF HOPE UGANDA for its spirit for coming up to support my education. I am now in school learning very well without any problem.
