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

The Balcraig Foundation

In the year 2007 the foundation helped our school in a grate part. We used to buy uniforms for ourselves but now the foundation is providing for us. They built our school into modern ways. we used to learn in muddy classes but now we learn in iron sheet rooms. They built for us dining hall. We used to sit on the low but now we sit on desks. We had no text books but now we have a library full of text books ,historical books, story books and dictionaries. We thank the head of the foundation Dr.Ann Glog for she accepted to co-operate and rebuilt Mashimoni squatter primary school. We thank God to continue providing for those people who can't help themselves. We pray to God to continue adding the foundation.
