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

End Of The Walk

The sight of women walking sluggishly weighed down by the excessive weigh of milk in plastics container was heartrending. It was brought to a stop by the help of Kajiado Central MP's wife Hellen Nkaissery after thinking about her people. She sat down with the wives of MPs from Rift Valley to raise money fro setting up a cooler. After toying with the idea, they set up Kajiado Constituency Milk Project and sponsored a group of women to visit Kenya Cooperative Creameries, KCC. This was to familiarize themselves with its operation. This projected more women and improved their marketing and their lives from the ground returns. This project has made the founders happy.
