Once upon a time, there was a man named Steve who lived in a small village. Steve was a hardworking and determined person, but he faced many obstacles in his life. Despite his struggles, he never lost faith in himself. He believed that with hard work and perseverance, he could achieve anything. One day, a severe drought hit the village. Many people were struggling to find food and water. Steve decided to take matters into his own hands and started digging a well in his backyard.
