Everything Is Possible

Five years ago, i ha dafriend of mine who dropped out of school when we were in form 3. it sounds pain because we usede to associate with him in all our undertakings. I was lack of enough fees to go ahead and when i finished my high school i happened to get in touch with aone NGO with the name CABDA which was willing to sponser a student to college. It has turned up to be a challenge since the sponsor left the village and my friend is able to support me right now to pay my school fees through her little income right now as we thank the NGo for turniong our life to the next level as we are wishing to persue further. God may open a way were it seems not to be as hard as we pays and always don't lose your hope.
