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

Tsetsefly

Livestock farmers in my community were counting losses years back when their livestock would suddenly be attacked by diseases that would eventually lead to their death. The region was infested with ticks which attacked this livestock and shift to crop farming instead of livestock farming. Some areas were infested with tsetse fly that caused Sagana to this livestock would eventually die. In 2000 an organisation by the name IDEAL or ILRI started and they would go to homes and diagonise this animals. They also sprayed insecticides and pesticides which helped to control ticks and tsetse fly which posed a great threat to this livestocks. Years later, the area is tsetse fly free and the livestocks farmers no more count losses bu enjoy the profits they get from milk and increased livestock productivity.
