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

Knowledge Implementation

Since the promalgation and acceptance of the new constitution of our country people just voted it in but did not understand the content in the constitution. The important facts of the constitution had been taught to the people all round the country. Western water and sanitation Forum came in handy to equip people in our neighbourhood with that knowledge. And since then people have learnt how to follow up the system of relation and all the important details in the constitution.
