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

Art Admired By God

God created talents. Basketball, Storywriting, music and any other that any person on earth posses are all arts of God. Thousands of young people in Kibera have talents that bring God down in admiration. Its sad, thus, most of this talents are not invested in and most of the Youth die with them miserably. A foundation in Kibera's Karanja area is though changing the lives of artists who draw their hearts out. Hundreds of Youths to sharpen their skills. I am amazed everytime I step into their arts gallery and see the things that have been a snap from an expensive Sony or Samsung hand Camera. But those pictures on the canvas are the well trained hands of children and youth from the foundation. The arts are loxers of the arts but also the amazing talents behind them. These are work of art admired by God.
