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

Good Roads In The Slum

One thing for sure is that there can't be good investments or businesses without proper road network. For a region to prosper in business, then it must have good roads and a proper road network that links it to the places it gets resources and customers. Thus the investment by the ministry of roads in conjunction with donors have constructed roads all around kibera meaning that businesses in kibera can now run smoothly. Suppliers of goods that are consumed in kibera can nowmove in smoothly and businessmen are happier. Though its quite remarkable work, people still believe that alot still needs to be done to make the roads better.
