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

Food For A Living

The young men on the street of Amulemba are really trying their level best to earn a living by making foodstuffs on the roadside.They prepare snacks which they sell to the passers by at a fair price.Really some people prefer these foodstuffs to the ones they sell in the hotels.They may buy these foodstuffs and take them at breakfast and also sell these lunch and to others for supper.They also sell these foodstuffs to the school kids who come in majority.Nevertheless some of these young men are operating close to the roads where dust and germs may enter into the food and make it unsafe for consumption and also some people are throwing garbage near their operating area thus making the area unsafe for cooking food and also the municipal council is failing on its part by not picking up the garbage.
