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

Wicked Intentions

Some people are just using others to gain what they want in life. They even go as far as using other peoples kids to get what they need and this has to stop. Am writing this story to see if some help could come and rescue as from the hands of these evil men and women out there. I myself have also been a victim of this people because they came and promised us a lot of good things and because we were also desperate they were able to use us as objects of their own good. They blinded our eyes with some few kenya shilling but they knew that what they were going to receive after carrying out their projects was a whole sum of money. So if someone could come and hear our cry we people from the lower part of life who receive and live than with less than a dollar. It has been so difficult for us.
