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

Kenya Rural Electrification Project

People in rural areas were living in darkness for very long time.Every night they had to ensure that their ''Korobois'' were full of parafin.The use of parafin was very costly and it also caused respiratory infections. With the dawn of kibaki era after the 2007 elections hope came when the kenya Rural electrification Project was established in order to distribute electricity to rural areas.Years later we can see a big change with most of this rural areas powered by electricity.Where darknesss engulfed the whole village today we witness the night became equal to day light because electricity.Respiratory infections have greately reduced and all we can say is thanks to the government for establishing the kenya Rural Electrification Project.
