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

Eradicating Illetracy

Plan international is supporting children in all counties of Kenya by paying school fees for them. They found out that many bright children are left to waste even after passing their exams with flying colours. They decided to educate their children in order to achieve their dreams. Plan international is represented all over the country and in supporting the children all over we are very grateful to what this organization is doing in Kenya. These children will be forever grateful to Plan International for it has made them realize their dreams by supporting them academically. Than you international.
