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

Electricity Supply

Inadequate and low power supply and low electricity coverage was seen as the reason why my town was not developed about some five years ago.However after the realization of that calling area residents collected funds together with an organization named VIPEP and installed sufficient electricity coverage in the center area. After that positive move, things started heading the right way.Investors started building industries and this has changed the whole face of my town.Good roads have been constructed, markets are all over and business is booming.Employment opportunities have been present on a wider scope.This is really wonderful.
