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

Building Of Water Tanks.

It was in the year 2006 in st Peters high in Lugari when there was a critical problem of water in the institution. In that it lead to rise of diarrhea in the institution. This problem affected many students leading to their parents transferring them from the institution.This transfer nearly led to the collapse of the school. Lucky enough the institution was saved from collapsing by an organization in the ares that had a mission of building water tanks to the community. The organization was called Kamadep which came and built two water tanks in the institution that helped the school to store enough water for their use. It also educated them on the need and how to harvest rain water by use of ridges. This programme helped the community at large, and that problem have never occurred again since then.
