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

Helping The Needy

I remember several years ago when i was a young a man,people in my village used to draw water from the river for domestic use.Some organization introduced the idea of ensuring that water was treated before it was used.They introduced various ways of making water safe.One of the methods involved putting clean water in bottles and putting them on the rooftop for heating from the sun.Such water would be clean and safe for drinking. Another organization called "Jua Africa" donated solar panels and installed them for schools that did not have electricity.It helped improve academic performance.
