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

The Optimistic Women In Action

Usafi women Group to which my wife is a member deserves credit from angles and sides. Since the last one and a half years ago, this women group provided a success formula to my wife. They keep her busy and posted in their programme which has provided capacity build up to her in the area of farming methods in poultry keeping and prooper valieties of crops especially maize. They also provide an opportunity to a member to earn some amount of money and help her to invest wisely in order to alleviate poverty. My wife was given ksh 15000 at some point and we went straight into buying layers. This project of poultry keeping has become our main strong hold for survival. We intend to mutiplicitically initiate this initiative of poultry keeping even wider. Mr. Mate
