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

Nedd For Finance To Continue With My Project Of Agriculture

It was about four months earlier that a certain organisation came to our area and it was educationg peoples on ways of estimating water in the ground an d how to bore wells.They taught us an organization in our area and we saw it an important idea and project. Reason to this is that we have an organisation which we started at about one and a half years back where we planted consumable fruits.When we started this project there was plenty of rain and water and our fruits survived this project there was plenty of rain and water and our fruits survived well.But now for about six months there is lack and shortage of water in our area.Our plants are suffering some diseases due to lack of water they have stopped yielding some have withered and some have already dried. The promise of digging up wells was very important to me because i could improve in the agricultural practises such as the one stated above and others such as rearing animals and poultry.But due to lack of finance and that is an economically poor i am unable to achieve my aim and target but i suggest or wish that if i gets someone to help me financially or even socially i would succed in life.
