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

Maren

Maren is a football club helping young people in our community. Everyday they came for training at the DO's ground. This sport helps them from not engaging in robbing or other bad activities. After coming from the training they will get so tired that they will not receive themselves in bad activities. I like the fact that they spent most of the time training so hard. The major challenge they are facing is that they lack training kits such as boots and jazzies. This challenge does not keep them from doing what is right. Some of the time they get involved in caollecting gabbage all over Kibera and they get involved in collecting gabbage all over Kibera and later on given something small by the chief.
