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


This is when I had a problem I could not handle alone. That I needed help from anyone but imagine what happened is that I was helped by (cfk) that is David, Darius and my aunt lucy they were people who helped me. Imagine you were a student and also a mother to someone too. Don't forget you must go to school and also take responsibility of your child. This was a big challenge in my life even I was almost dropping school and also I wanted to commit sucide because I did not see any reason to be a life because I could not save to things at the same time. There is when Carolina came in & talked to me and adviced me on what to do though it was painful to handle my own child to someone else to take responsibility and I go to school I really thank the organization for (cfk) and my aunt.
