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

Lift Up Your Brother

The world and kenya in particular has succumb to the fact that many people live below one american dollar which translates to not over one hundred(100/) kenyan shilings.Trying to devide these into daily basic needs/wants becomes quite a huge problem to the parents or the guardian.Unemployment has lead to these sectors failingb to cop up hence the high rate of crime in the urban centres where most youth run insearch of winning their daily bread. Due to these fact people from my village especially those who provide philanthropically decided to donate and or bring together financial resources to boost their brothers who were lying low They further identified a number of youth whom they shared ideas and decided to start up a different business.They are economically well off today and live happily with food shelter and clothing
