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

Sometimes In April

It was sometime in April when my daughter came back home,jumping happily and shouting joyously something that made me believe that a good report was at the door knocking. I was so eager to hear what made her so happy and out of her mind like she was''mum mum,i have been chosen by the ICS organisation as one the girls to be sponsored in the district due to my good perfomance.'' I stood amazed,perplexed and shocked as tears of Joy rolled down my cheeks. Finally God had seen our suffering and heard our cry just at the point when i was about to give up and at the point when the school was at the brink of sending my daughter out of school.
