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

Copa Aid Builds A Primary School At Butiti Village And Gives Domestic Animals To People.

COPA AID helped us to build a prrimary school in our village Butiti. before we got this school built many pupils could suffer long distances to go to other prrimary schools which were far away from their homes. We were very happy to have a new school built in our village and this schools helped many pupils to go for classes because it was built near their homes in Butiti village. COPA AID also gave domestic animals to vulnerable families in Butiti village especially those who had orphans living in a poor state due to poverty. These animals included piglets and kids which people were to look after for a commercial reason to earn money from them.
