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

Population And Employment

During the time when were carrying the baseline survey in the community of Bulama to analyse the situation of the people and how they were hiring, we happened to find one of the community member who was very much informed about the community." When the number of people was smaller and there was plenty of land a large family often had more income/wealth than small family .This was because with more working hands, the family could form more land or tend more animals.Today, however in many areas, most of the good agricultural land is already being used.There is no longer unlimited room for expansion.When the amount of land available for agricultural production is limited , the number of people needed to work the land is also limited.
