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

Sanitation

General cleaness as sanitation is connected was worse in kibera slums at once when there were no toilets to be used, the once that were there were not upto date. The fact that they could not be used during the night as there was insecurity established in the area. The PEEPOO group came up with the idea of flying toilets. The toilets were portable and once used could be thrown in a dumpsite well established for them. This could help many especially at night. This atleast regain some level of sanitation in the region.
