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

Curbing Unemployment Among The Youth

majority of youth have been idling around due to lack of employment opportunities. this has in a way made them to engage in vices like drug abuse,heavy drinking and probably theft activities. however the youth enterprise fund initiative under the prime ministers office has seen many youths transforming their lives. a significant example streams from my area where a certain group of about 20 members come together and obtain a loan from this fund.With the loan they started businesses which within a year had expanded even helping to repay the loan. they also used the proceeds to purchase a land which they have used to carry out farming. For now they are wealthy and this credit can be altered to the youth enterprise fund.
