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

Determination For Change Produces Results.

I am the Secretary of Shivakala Youth Group in Kabras Kakamega North District. Since 1998, this old Youth Group has taken root in an area that did not have a fore sight and commitment in investment ideas. We are excited that with our perseverance we have provided an example which among others have emulated. It is exciting that we have exploited an understanding on inventory areas and innovation. Mushroom growing is done, bee keeping is done and cane farming which are not lying low and small in the light o areas of development. The community has changed due to this, greatly.
