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

A Better Future For Young Haitians

As to my story was very long to explain. Since I was little I was fighting by myself to educate me. It wasn't so easy for me. My mom and dad weren't educated, so they didn't understand what education does mean. I had worked bad jobs to afford my primary school. Grace of god, I just got finished my primary school. Then it was my high school. I was going but I didn't finish and I dropped out of it, cause of the money. It was so hard for me, because I was helping my mother and father too early. Cause of that I saw alot of grief in my life and education is my relief. I often pray to God to change my life. That was my prayer to God. According to me, I think EDV mean alot to me and where ever I'll see, I'll never forget what you have done in my community, specially for me. It's something unforgettable. I'm really appreciated your jobs that you came to do in Haiti. It's in my benefit because you involved in different layers. For example, education and construction. May God grant you and you alive for the rest of your lives.
