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


"Cleanlinessis next to godliness"they say where there is clean environment and water then it means all is well because the people would be fre from deseases.Use of latrines and toilets are encouraged to keep safe the water and environment. many schools in my village do not have enough facilities to cater for the big number of students getting involved or enrolling to the schools. many a times they caught up sharing a latrine or urrinal more than the capacity it as commonded to serve at a time. recently an organisation advocating for clean water and sanitation-Western Water& Sanitation Forum came up with an initiative and gave an helpig hand to the administration by constructig four new doors & equally divide for the boys and girls. there was a great job by WENASAFO kudos!!
