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

Young Farmers Club

This is the story how an organisation was started by our chief in the villagers farms. This day was Madaraka day when all the villagers were called on a meeting to chatt how they were going to drive away the problems which have been disturbing the villagers. I was happy when I was told by my dad that I'll have a chance to attend the meeting. Finally I was among the crowd of people who were at the meeting. The chief started by greeting the his people and the talkings started the problem was how farmers were to get water to irrigate there crops because they were drying up because of lack of water. The problem was solved out by digging a well in each every shamba so that people get enough water and the program worked.
