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


Our school principal invented an apiculture in our school to keep more that fifty beehives to produce honey and wax. at first people saw it as money wastage and even land wastage.later after three month, he called the organisation to remove the products. many of the students together with the teachers were surprised of what products the principal found from those hives. In fact more beehives were added to the others and more land set aside for the same practise. The principal of Chavakali high then took a third of the products and gave the school including the teachers, students and non staff members. Other schools came and learnt about bee-keeping . The rest of the wax and honey he sold and gave the money to the needs and orphaned students. The school now saved money which it used to take students to the national show of the year at provincial level.
