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

A Friend In Need Is A Friend Indeed.

Laikipia is located in the Rift Valley Province where the climatic condition is arid which promotes lack of food to the community. People in this community rely on food production so there was an organisation which was formed to educate the people how to locate water in shallow wells which could be used to produce water. After the wells were dug, people got some difficulties these were like pumping machine and other wells did not produce any water, so the organisation was not able to succeed. The community came up with an idea to consult an NGO fro further assistance.
