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

Water For School Needs

Water is an issue in our community. Women are the ones with the responsibility of fetching water for domestic use. This sometimes is a challenge to a school which has no water to meet in food, sanitation and hygiene needs. In mwiyak school, students use this they did at an expense of missing class lessons and they also get tired without strength and time to sucky. In the year 2009, western water and sanitation forum came in and built a water harvesting tank in the school. This water tank has a capacity of 30000liters. The tank is able to store enough water for all school needs and now students are not send to fetch water as before, they can concentrate on their studies and ensure they pass their exams.
