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

A Helpful School In Kibera Slums

It is well known that private schools perform well compared to government schools this is because in private schools there are enough teachers and ready to assist in any case while in government schools the number of teachers is few compared to the number of pupils or students the same case happen to those schools that are build in slums areas but we thank the magoso centre that is supporting the orphans, the neighbours around by giving them food, water and ready to support in anything no matter where one is coming from the tribe or the status through this we find that the pupils who are learning in magoso centre are doing well compared to other schools. This is due to the support that there are given in that school everthing is given to them and thus has real help in magoso including those who are leaving around the school. Last but not list may God bless the ones in change of that school staying with orphans the need in the community is not an easy work.
