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


Daniel kwenyu is a young man from mumias distric,Kamasia village.He is the first born in their family,born again and has zael for the Lord.I knew him through his pastor,who was a friend of mine.By then i was looking for somebody whom i could hire for some domestic works.His pastor recommended him for the job. I learnt that he had dropped out of school,after his kenya certificate of primary examination because his parents were poor and could not affort school fees.As a result of this he became a laughing stock in the community.As he continued with the job,i discovered that he has children's ministry which could be developed further for him to be effective. Global Assistance partners-kakamega recommended him to join Lake Victoria development and Training Centre at Sagalla-uganda for a diploma Course in christian Ministries and community Development.This brought new hope and upon Completion will be able to live a fruitful and productive life both to the community and to the body of Jesus christ.
