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

Youth Groupings

The Baghdad Boys is a menace to the society for most [people who live in Kisumu town. Initially it was a self help group providing locals with security before eventually evolving to a militant sect associated with the most killings that take place in the city, local leaders have tried to urge youths from entering the group terming it as a cancer out to destroy the town but the police on the other hand haven't done anything to deal with the group. This is bearing fruits slowly. The leaders meet with the youth regularly.
