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

My Best Offer

One day when I was sitting alone in my hut I started thinking in my mind. Day by day am getting older and older and within a shot time I shall die. After death of my wife, the people of this village have been helping me a lot by giving me free food. In return I must do something good for them so that the people of this village can remember me after my death. I nodded my head deeply. Although I don't have any other help apart from advice. People of the community knows very well am suffering from HIV coz my wife die of the disease. And the most people I will turget are the youth coz they are the one involving in this things. I did so and eventualy they hard what I advised them.
