What I Hoped Is Not What I Saw

Because i was financially poor,i had to get some one to assist/help me so that my children can go to school.This organisation helped them at a small time,because during that time although they were regestered,but they got small than other children. This came this organisation was building houses,toilets,helping children in scholastic materials to other people,but my children were not given all what the organisation had promised.The time came and they started discriminating in religion because my children were not catholics,this made them to be custed out in this organisation.Now i am planning the way of taking them to school.SOme one at school,some are in vocation,hopiping to go in technical schools but i also need help so that we can continue with our dream as afamily.
