A Dissapointing Cleaning Movement

It all happened when this group of foreigners came to my school to teach us life skills.While still on their work we we /they talked about helping in changing my nearby slum area that is by carrying out clean ups and picking litters all over the place.At first we thought the idea was great and then by pass of time we come to find out that the whole idea was unsuccessful because not everybody agreed to its so the (wazungus) foireghners came to give up on this plan like everyone was on his/her own world and nobody seemed commited to the plans so it had to die off so the foreigners left the country leaving us stranded with no hopes of continuing with the changes of enviroment movement coz it an end to end up dissapointingly.
