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

Issuing Of Sanitary Towels

My name is Linda Kimaru. I am a student at Kaimosi high school. I am currently in form four and i am working hard to pass my forthcoming national examinations. Majority of poor girl in my school have been lacking sanitary towels which in a way has been affecting their education. However a certain organisation called Aphia 2 a bout a year ago and has been supplying this towels to the students in our school. They have eased this problem and students are really grateful for whatever has been done to them. This initiative has seen the girls even improving in their academic and majority passed in the national examinations last year due to this.
