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

Higher Education At Home

With the coming of Masinde Muliro University of Technology branch here in Nambale, I got a good idea of a business opportunity and so when my son Grado Ndiacha came from the US in February and asked me what he could do for me to help me earn a living and change my life from the former life of poverty I simply asked him to build for me hostels. Goodluck or fortunately he had very good money and so the construction work began on the fifteenth of February and today even before the hostels are completely finished, students have already booked some having paid rent for two months in advance. Oh my, I just feel good because this is a sign of good things to come.
