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

Boda Boda

Boda Boda boys that's our name this is because an NGO in town asked us to take a bicycle on loan and pay weekly this idea brought 15 young men together and decided to take a bicycle each.We encouraged others to take so that if they are not able to pay we shall support them and repay the loans as promised As soon as we got the bicycles that marked te end of our struggle we really recieved support from the politicians who did some harambee and we have completed the loan.For now every body has a reason to smile beacuse of his individual business
