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

Small Animals For Change

Small Animals contribute much to household social and economic status.One evening I was at a local market and an old widow who cares for six orphans had not enough money.The shop keeper told her ''you have no means to pay back if I gave you credit'' Diligently I listen and I got concern about what can be done.As a social worker in a charity I did discuss with many other widows and aged women.One World Development Foundation did start a life loans system with two goats.One gives back the first kid is a group member and the member grows. Now within the organization there are more than three hundred orphans and vulnerable children care givers with goats.More people now respect these care givers than before.
