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

Sleeping In The Corridors

I had just arrived in Nairobi late in the night almost 10 pm because the vehicle we were using had broken down when were at Nakuru and so it took almost four hours for it to be repaired. It was very late and I certainly knew that time, it was too dangerous going to Umoja. I walked trying to find somewhere i could sleep until i came to this corridor where people were paying the watch man some thirty shillings and were allowed to sleep on one of the corridors under the watch of the watchman. I also paid and spent my night with them.
