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

Preserve The Environment

We were very busy playing basketball in our school beach. It was in the evening the games time. We heard the bell rung all of a sudden. It was not usual while we went fro various sports activities. We gathered at the assembly hall. Our teacher said that certain visitirs were in the school from a neighbouring province. They had a good message for all of us. They said that they were aspirants fro keeping the environment clean for now and even in future use. Their aim was to plant trees especially the district species in our forestry. The following two weeks, two vehicles were in the school with the young trees. We enjoyed the exercise and were very happy.
