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

Assisting Orphans To Acquire Education

Many people in my area most especially the adult people who had their children at home but yet they had no acess to go to acquire education and yet they were in need of it. But yet their parent wanted their children to go to school but it was due to lack of school fees which was their major problem and yet some children are orphones who remained with thier grand mothres or fathers. But this organiosation which is known as Rotary Club came into place to help such children because they were willing to do so. However, by htat time all the people in my area were very much exited with that information but an fortunately after a short period of time thesecople never fulfill their promises which made the old people including the children very annoyed because many children where willing to receive anumber of pupils or students in their promises which was not good
