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

Power To Move

Jackie is a woman who works with NGO in Nairobi town. They deal mostly with women, girl child and how to empower women. Sometimes when she get time, we meet in women groups in Dagoretti. She normally tells us she believe anything can change anything. You do not have to read a book for transformation. Book means making you aware. You can only be altered if you want it. It is something very personal. She has taught and encouraged women, youth to face live positive. Anything can change anything.
