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


SIDARET was started two years ago now. Many schools have been going to the library to take book but most of the time they come with the vehicle which always carry the story book which always cary the story book which you can take and they can help in your composition writing. Most of the times we go to the library with our teacher and we are taken around and we are given a chance to chose the book which we can use and for some weeks we may return them if we have finished reading them. The organization was started by the youth group of young people who came up with the program. For sump times the organization came to ur school and gave us some books we were given some tshirts, schoo shops socks, school bags, pens and pencils. The organization is to help the street child but not to do them as slaves even if they don’t have parents they can still go to school and learn they can perform best and they can be your hiros
