Organisation That Helped To Change Something In Our Community

A story about a time when an organisation helped me and my community. By the time this organisation started i was in S.1.I was studying from a certain school at Kawempe.when i came back home for the first term holidays my parents told me that they had decided that i should change the school.when they told me i accepted.time came when i had to go to the new school that my parents had picked for me.When i reached to school at the first time i didn't like the school because the students were few by the time i went there and i didn't know a certain organisation was helping me because my parents hadn't yet told me so but now we are many and in different schools so i am so proud and i have no any problem in school fees because of this organisation.It has not helped me only but also others like the orphans and other member of the community.
