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

Dirls Wash Rooms In Schools

My name is Mildred. I'am a std 8 pupil from museno primary school. I love learning. Thank God for my school and what my teachers have been instilling in my life. I used to do well in class but one year i remember i kept out of school for 21 days. Every month i used to be absent and after counting i found out that it's almost 21 days. This is because of my state when i used to go in for periods. i could find out that i'am uncontrollable, i fear going outside or walking to school. I feared boys would see me if i mess up. But one day an N.G.O visited school and decided to build and construct wash rooms for girls. When they completed they started issuing sanitary towels from that time i have never missed class to exams and hope that i will do well in exams.
