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

Art And Design

Immediately after my form four course,i came up with a project of making dyes and brushes.The way of making up these was to look simply an avacado fruit and some herbals. The project came wide with time,so a man came in our village looking for some youths whose interest are for arts Now he found me doing different work from the one interested at.He decided to challenge some collegues to accompany me in that work. So he organised an outing to United Kingdom in america for further studies,meaning to have enough knowledge .As time goes by,the date comes near to departe.Unfortunately the man got an accident so failed to go.
