“Two years ago, I was at the school to celebrate my birthday with the students. When I was leaving, I realized that the playground was in a deplorable state. The metals were all rusted. So I told myself that, I won’t stop till I’m able to provide a good recreational center for the students so that at the end of the day, they can also pride themselves of having a beautiful playground. That was the most important thing for me. And I wanted to thank everyone who supported this project,” she explained was her reason for the kind gesture.
