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

Slim Hope

These goes to all youths and children who were born in slums and suffering in the slums. Organizations are set up in this slum in the nome of helping them bit all are just lies and selfishness. This is form one of the organizations which i will not put to paper. They come to help the people in the slum to get education by offering sponsorship to them. The pay for the education to these children upto to form level at which very few reach the four level. Most of them are being dropped out of school because of no good reason. They say that the children are wasting the funds of sponsorship. To certain extent they help because not all they can afford a chance in secondary level but in the contrary the people who come up with the organization they are driving very big cars leaving in a very expensive houses while the people when they say they are helping are getting more poor other engaging in animal activities and other practising prostitution so that they can raise money to feed themselves. To me those organization are being used by reach people to make poor people never to raise because it irony to see why are organization set up in slum is growing. There are no changes this are going from bad to worse. This organisation must be monitored there operation. They need to be overlooked. the activities being carried because helping someone to reach form four level your have not transformed the person. changes must be seen ie There should not be things like slums people should not leave people life a low standard living, criminal activities should not be increasing immorally should nor be increasing immorally should not be increase.
