A Helping Organisation

Everyday a challenge and new things take place. so it was like other days in my village when i decided to walk around the villagehood. The time went and i was still working. I came across some small boys gathering in a small group about 12 km from my village. But I didn't know what the boys were upto. Eventually, I moved forward to know really their conversation. I heard one of them saying ''Let us go and steal from the school.'' Afterwards I introduced myself as well. I was told they lack funds for them to continue with their studies so, they had made bad decision. After ten minutes, I took all of them to ome of the organisation that helped those who cannot support themselves. When reaching there, We were glad to be welcomed, I was talked to those women i found in that organisation. The children received support and they were taken to school and now they have compled their studies. They work in the gorvernment, All of them have children and they can provide basic needs to their family and they help other people and Iam glad.
