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

Why I Am In School

It was about three years ago when a girl in our village lost his parents after KCPE. so that girl went to live with his relatives but they could not keep her well. So this girl even she would'nt go to secondary school that year because of lack of school fees. But it was one evening when somebody visit her and told her that he would pay for her school fees, so she needed to go to secondary school the following day. That gin prepared her self to go to school. When she was in secondary she was very hard working because she know that what God has plan for her is very greatest thing that even no one will know it. After his girl did KCPE she passed very well and go to university and this time she is accountant. So she remembers this person who helped him and even this time she like to help the orphans and street children.
