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

Education

I can very well remember three years ago when i was in high school. The school administration would stress on us about education, it would encourage us to work extra hard so as to appear as top students in the county and also countrywide. This is mainly because we would organise an education day for all schools in the county and the best schools awarded and offered nice and good opportunities like winning themselves scholarships. This encouraged most schools to work hard so as to be able to get the awards ans also win themselves scholarship opportunities. This helped improve the academic performance of the region and have been lately ranked in the top regions that perform well countrywide.
