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


the student fraternity was suffering from insecurity around my college when i was a student.those living of campus frequently got robbed,beaten and at one point a student was shot dead just around the college. this issue was very persistent in the area and the freedom,fun and security of students was interfered with the school administration sought of the way forward because the problem issued a threat to the college students and the college students had now started to demonstrate and pressurize the administration to help them. alot of meetings were held and after a long pull and push between the students administration and the government,a police patrol base was constructed in the area by the government and this provided enough security ton the students.the robbery cases stopped and so many people got arrested and jailed and that became the end of the problem.freedom, security and fun was restored as the college began to gain reputation again
