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

Cleaning

In our sarounding we need a clean environment, and being that Mathare is highly populated the environment is poluted, by plastics,sewerages, So the TAYO youth group starts with the cleaning estate as a firm of their job oportunities. This was important because there was low crime rate within the estate. The group involves many youth in cleaning services to create their own job, to reduce idleness and to make sure suroundings are clean to avoid contaminated diseases with the estate.
