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

The Community Reaps From Determination

1998 marked a time when poverty would soon be challenged and denied a freelance opportunity it exploited in Shivakala area in Kakamega North. The decision by Shivakala Youth Group changed the tide against a framework of which prosperity was not one of the element that enjoyed survival. Poverty alleviation has come with the youths firm hands on income generation activities that now dictate a five course and order of life. As a member, I have the locus standi to uphold the determination we so far have led to the paint of commanding the economic/social line of our community.
