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

Boda Boda

My name is Peter. I am 22 years old. I finished my school a year ago but I haven't been successful in getting a job to earn me a living. I am doing some casual work for Indians in town loading and off loading goods from the lorry. I have always thought of running away and getting another job but it's like that job has tight me up. What can I do that I never went on job. That's the day visitors come in my village with the area chief demanding young men to take a bicycle on loan if they wish. I thought this was a bright idea. That was the end of me working for Indians. Within a week I had a new bicycle and I was now happily doing my own work. At least I had time to relax. I am very happy indeed with these organization.
