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

A Responsible Leader

Some three months ago not so long some lectures form the university of Canada visited our area with some professors from Nigeria they were really kind hearted and they and they really had a message to pass to the people only to realize that someone was also giving bad information about them. They came with different prospects, they built permanent toilets bathrooms and when they had just started building a library for the local youths around some people came in with different idea but all this was thrown away. After everything had been completed we needed someone responsible to come in and in volunteer taking care of everything. That has been a problem up to date no one has been willing to do that and so we are really crying to the organization out there to come in and do something about it.
