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

Education Strengthening

It is blessed as well as beautifull beyond any thing else for one to see one's child grow and develop.And even more when one's child grow and develop.And even more when one 's child grows in knowledge indeed gratifying. Education is costly but the proceeds there of worth the cost.My joy in sending Maria my late brother's daughter to a school with slight cost has undoubtedbly been sure to become.Maria was alittle challenged in understanding things but it seems high way and what buttons to press in order to activate her pathway of success and she adapted an understanding that has quicly equipped her with the skills of reading and writting,a side to developing her along her gifts and talents she will be a wonderfull person i n future.I could beg to suggest the need for sponsors to come in a handy to support to this school but i must even plead that it is very needful for this centre to develop further.
