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

Technological Boost

Not long ago a school in my village was up raised to a secondary school.The news spread so fast among the community in the village and other villages too,everyone was happy about the information little did they know that it came with responsibility. There was need to upgrade the class and other facilities and even two staff to catter for the large number of expected students. A good Samaritan through came and gave a helping hand by providing six computers sets and a trainer to the school. The computers are currently used by the students for the lessons.These was truly a good gesture.
