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

Fighting For The Rights Of People With Disability

Me as a person with disability I was born in a family of seven and was alone in this situation. In our family I was never recognized by family members not even my parents. They looked at me as a burden and never even bothered to take me to school. I hard of an organisation that is fighting for the rights of people with disability. I went there and was taken to be part of them because they have other people they offer prevention and care to them. They train them, support the orphans, provide computer training, buy uniform and pay school fees. I was enrolled in training computer and also employed in the same organisation. So i have a job at the same place doing very well and also supporting the people with disability. Create awareness to the community to support them and not neglect them. i support my family too and has been a lesson to other people.
