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

Donot Be Respendence To Be Rich Or Poor

There lived a man in the nearest town to our village called Kemboi. kemboi was a man with three children and two wives. The elder wife was called Chepchirchir and the other one was Chepng'etich. The man was very poor and even sometimes they slept hungry. One day as Kemboi was just gazing at the sky, someone approached him and tapped his shoulders. Kemboi trembled with a lot of fear and when he turned to look backwards, he saw a stranger standing next to him. The stranger greated him and they started the conversation of asking questions and giving out answers. In that process, Kemboi found himself in a complex web of confusion. The man told him that he is going to change his life from being poor to rich. Kemboi called his wives and children and he introduced the stranger to them and how he has promised to change their life. They were overjoyed and they thanked the strange very much
