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

It was in February 13th on Sunday at 2:00 p.m when we called by the principle of our school, "Chavakali High School", at the dining hall. We settled as soon as possible and the principle, teachers, guests arrived. The meeting was about helping those students who cannot aford school fees in our schol by paying for them. During the meeting we organized it by praying first then we distributed some money. We students contributed one thousand one hundred and fifty six plus an aditional nine thousand. The project didnt fail because of social relations. Teachers contributed thirty two thousand and the guests who included principles of other schools contibuted thirty nine thousand.
