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

Steering Metamorphosis

It has always been a delight to my life in reflecting the sweetness and joy of having become a member of a group that was forward looking and one with a future. The youth have a potential to generate more solutions to as many problems as there are in the society. Unemployment has for instance been nearly talked as we have embarked fully on self employment/ income generating activities that have rightfully converted our energies very productivelly. We see many a youth emulate us now. We see the extention of table banking which began with us now done even with women groups, because it worked with us successfully. I have undergone a great metamorphosis from unproductiveness to fruitfulness for the community as well. MESHACK TEMBA
