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

No Looking Back

The expectations of our teachers had been so high just before sitting for our final exams of form four level.What they so as through was no longer an obstacle from the rundown classrooms,poor and unequipped labaratories.They all had something to smile for from the ultra-modern refurbished & equiped library,to well managed classrooms and enough teachers.This could not have been if it were not the donations of the Allumni of Lukume secondar school,who donated equipments to modernise our labaratories and hire more staff.we just didn't want to disappoint as we had studied hard to get this far and their was nothing that was going to stop us in achieving our goal.
