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

Extra Efforts Are A Great Tool

I am Beatrice Makhonya, the assistant secretary of Jisaidie support group. Our members are people you will want to talk for.They attend all the meetings, not because they have legs but the innovation they graped from a necessary discovery drives them. This group which started (was formed) in 2008 has inspired members so much that they not only sacrifice their everything but htey go an extra mile to achieve through their objectives. from supporting the orphans to the committed farming they now do, theirs has transformed both their own atitudes and the scope of the community as a whole.
