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

Idleness Is The Evils Workshop

We are a group of 15 people who are Rugby players in our community, we joined each other by coming together to make a team. Some were from different schools while others came from the same schools. We as players, we had a very big challenge of funds to help us buy kits and helps play in tonemounts by registering. Blue Shield Insurance is the company that came in and helped us to have self-esteem to what we were doing. This has enabled most of the youths to join the team so as to do away with idleness.
