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

Discovering Our Talents

Emusire Football club(group) was started in the year 2009.The main reason for starting this group of young players was to help those young boys and girls who have finished their secondary education in making their talents come true. It was last year during the December Holidays when the manager of the club known as Otwemba Benson received a letter from Harambee stars(The Kenya National Team).This letter was requesting for any player from the club since Okwemba's club had many talented players almost all the team was taken and as we talk they are playing for the national team.some have being called to play professional football in foreign countries.
