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

The Jitegemee Helpers

Although the world is full of criminals and merciless people, many organisations or even few single people have tried to change the world by bringing help to the oppressed and people of the world, as a victim of the oppressed and people who need special care worldwide, I thank those people and organisations because they try to change the world in one way or the other. For this reason, I am more than thankful to the Jitegemee street children program for helping me from the dork-miseried streets. In the past I had nothing because I was a orphaned boy. The hard life and economy pushed me to the streets and made me to stay there for about two years. There I met all sorts of characters and human beings. In the town the people there treated us as dogs which were abadoned. But I thank Jitegemee for brightening my future an I hope I will suceed in life. They gave me all I needed and am great full to them.
