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

Reproductive Health

Due to the increase of education in the country and the world at large This has led already available infrastructure in the country not being enough for the available population. This has led to the conjestion of people in the town with no enough housing thus leading to the encrochment of the slums this has led to lack of enough hospitals to treat people and not enough schools in the country to cater for the increase of population of children in the slums. Due to this the ministry of health launched a program to educate family planning. This was evident at karanja in kibera, The program was done through ceminers, forums and campaigns via the radio and television. This inturn as helped gradually reduce the population in the country at large.
