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

Whether Conservation

Due to climate change which caused change in the seasons and even global warming, there came an organisation which would organise meetings to educate the people on the various ways which they can use at least to try to curb it. The organisation educated the people to plant more trees which doesn't effect the water sources such as the drying up of the wells and rivers so as to form more water catchment areas and avoid drought which might be caused bylack of rain for a long period of time. The organisation also provides seedlings to schools and a certain group of people so as to have tree nurseries whereby these schools and the people can sell them when they are ready for planting during the rainy season.
