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


I once remember a certain organization changed our lives in a while in my community. Rush,meaning reaching the unreached through self- Help is an organisation that still exists upto now one day the leard mr. omukowa with his friends from london ,distributed alot of things to the needy.They gave as clothes, food and many other things. Those who had young kids were taken to rush ACADEMY to learn there freely .For those who has finished secondary education were taken to colleges and universities. Mr and Mrs. Amutowa also gave us chances to talk with their visitors in lodon. I managed to make friends with one by name Joan.She was a pleasant woman who fights for the rights of a child.She taught us many things about their country.She came out with her own project and said that as long as she was hear she could visit our homes. I was very happy when she called me on phone and said that i prepare she was coming.Finally she visited my home area. The Rush project has really helped us and if is still helping many others. I was really inspired by that funtastic moment in my life
