We really need to know which country it is growing in, and more specifically where it is in a country, also the type of habitat.

Is it growing wild, or has it been planted in gardens?

It would be more helpful also if you could take photos of the live plant, not only the leaves but photos also of the whole plant.

There are very many plants worldwide, the more clues you can give the easier it is to identify.

To identify any plant, there is some imformation that you need:

Where is it growing? (country but also growing conditions, ie: dry, wet, altitude, what other plants were growing around it?). Was it in a forest? A savannah? Is it in someone's yard?

What is the overall shape and size of the plant?

What do the leaves look like? (It appears you are showing us part of one leaf) Veining patterns? Opposite or alternate leaflets? Serrated or smooth or ? edge?

How do the branches attach to the plant?

Any evidence of fruit or flowers?

You will not identify your plant without this information.

I'd also be curious about what type of project you have been assigned. That might help us to give the information you require to pass a test with a good grade.
