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

A Wise Decision

THE SCHOOL HAD DONE well and passed in the Kenya national examinations but they had no bus and some school needs. They had tried to contribute to buy some items so that the school could use but they had not succeeded. Then the president decided to provide them with some items and gave them one bus so that they could use whenever they wanted to. Then the principal of Nyakach Girls High School decided to organize so that they could thank the president who had retired and they promised to work hard in the next exams that will be done.
