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

Sanitation

Some mobile toilets were put up in Kokuoyo primary school by some philathropists to help the pupils being that they had only two toilets serving the whole school. 10 toilets were put up and are functional. The pupils helped in digging in the pits and they also invited some community memebers to help in the digging and were paid for labour. So far the toilets have helped people living near the school as they at times sneek during weekends and help themselves there because many of them have not put up toilets saying it is expensive. so the mobile toilets have been of much help to them.
