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

"farmers Finally Get A Hand"

When one day I visited my grandparents in the village i was so pleased to hear them that the government through its programme such as National Agriculture Advisory Services has helped them in the agricultural productivity by providing them some garden tools like hoes, wheel barrows, rakes, improved seed for planting such as maize, beans, cassava stems and even pesticides for spraying and killing the pests which affect their crops. This has greatly increased on the agricultural output (productivity) of many ugandans which in turn give them alot, sell of the surplus and get money used in the purchasing of other essential needs thereby improving and changing their lives; Thank you
