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


IT IS ONE YEAR SINCE this organisation called NEMA came to our community. It helped many of our residents through many ways. Our village was like a damp site but the organizational since it came, you can not even say that it is our village. We look nice and tidy. This organisation of Nema helped us in recycling all the empty containers, lids and other metal objects that are magnetic. Since that day, we earn even at least something especially children when they collect all these things, they are given something fro recreation. We say, thank you to this organisation and continue to do the same.


  • The organization most involved in what happened: Nema
