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

A Boosting To The Women Capacity In Society (productivity)

I am Dinah Nambala, a leader of Usife Moyo Women Group in Kakamega Central District. This Group is a tool that having noticed the suffering of Women, especially the widows and those infected with HIV Aids decided to put up a framework that can help redeem the situation. Through a Group initiative, to bring minds together and seeking networks, life of the infected could be elongated and more hope given to the victims, while putting caution on careless living at the same time. I have seen good results. Many women who used to lose hope have improved and their lives grown to a greater expectation. We have gone to seminars to acquire knowledge and skills that have transformed our lives. We have set up frameworks of income generation table banking, mery go round and businesses that are a boost to all of us.
