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

How Our School Has Developed

Our school used to be made by mud, When you are reading you could only hear Puf! the stone has anything. Our playground as big as an elephant but with no green grass. Now Ann Gloag helped us now we are good classrooms and toilets. It smells good like rose. We are now having clean uniforms and they are smart. Our teacher now are new and teaching us very-well. Now we drink and eat up to when our stomach is full of food. We go for games and bible studies so that we can no more about bible. Also they have fields because all work without pay make jack a dull boy. We thank God for bringing Ann Gloag to help us.
