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

Deaf Assistance

She is a very happy and jovial baby girl and her name is Scovia.Looking at her from far you can never realize that she is deaf untill she begins talking to you with sign language. Something interesting about her is that she at times can hear but she does not hear all the time.So deaf aid an organization in kibera is really doing well in sponsoring her with everything including healthy food.Scovia from the help that deaf aid is offering to her she can now term words and even write and read despite her disability.Deaf has really played a very big role in educating Scovia and I am really inspired by deaf and everything that has happens there. Scovia is really looking forward something that is good about it and how we should feel them. The story of Scovia is an inspiration to me and since I started high I have been having the dream of begginning a school for the deaf as a love working with the disabled.It is an advantage for me to work with them.
