The Day When I Was Rescued

Few months past of the year 2011 around the month of February when I was proposing to go to seek jobs looking for school fees that could help me to continue with studies in A level.By the time I had already finished O level in Bushenji district in Uganda. My mother also struggled harder because she wanted me to continue studying Due to the fact that my father died, she could not sit down. In the early days of January she had a project called rearing street kid helping the unable ones.Fortunately my mother sat with a pastor Meddie a director of his project and granted her a chance as it was requested for him. I joined school of Emirates college school makindye under thin project and it has helped me much to continue studying.
