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

Impact Of Cooperation.

The formation of RIDOKAM self Help group in Urir village of migori county really impacted positively on the lives of the members and the locals. Being a registered group in the Attoney general office it is a legal entity. It has since helped its members and the entire public in fundraising emergency funds for medical bills or school fees for students whenever required. Members always agree on a specific sum of money & contribute whenever someone faces some difficulty. Indeed it has positively changed the lives of the area habitats and there is a call for more like it to be formed.
