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

Erradication Of Poverty

My story is about poverty in the community and in the country at large. The kind of poverty am talking about is that which is brought about by natural calamity since some are unproductive to produce enough yield for consumption to community members. This kind of poverty has also lead to laziness among members of the community. The kind of poverty here can be solved by educating .people living ,in these areas to adopt new morden farming technology which include irrigation and planting plants that are productive in such areas including cash crops. The government, Organization and Donors to support them financially and educating the society members on the benefits of modern irrigation and cash crop farming to boast the community economically.
