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

Environmental Conservation

We were still in University in 2010,This was a student group that tried to make a positive impact on the entire student community and its neighbors at large.This was not easy as it involved reasonable amount of money that student could not raise.They thought of various cost effective projects but this could not bring the impact they wanted.So one day they thought of a cost effective project that could be benefiting to both the community and the environment.This project was about tree planting at the campus.So they planted trees a long road of the entire University and took care of them until they could stand on their own.This tree planting project was the greatest achievement for they will be remembered for!
