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

Building Of Toilets

The slum are a densely populated region in the country, This is due to the influx of people from rural to urban in look for employment which they don't find thus they end up doing odd jobs. This has led to the encrochment of housing in all the available space in the slums. This has led to the neglect of sanitary thus leading to the lack of toilets in the slums. Due to this the embassy of france launched a program to help the society by building of toilets for them to go to, This has led to the improved sanitary in the slums Thus leading to the prevention of diseases and outbreaks, it has also provided a healthy environment since now people have places to put their waste. This has led to the environment being clean and it has also provided employment in building and taking care of the toilets.
