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

Life Transfromation

I am Peter Odiero. i am a native of Mumias. Mumias Sugar Company is one of the biggest sugar producing companies in the country. For the last five years, I have seen this company transforming the lives of people around. farmers who plant sugarcane, normally take their harvest to this company and in return they are able to get income. The company has also been involved in several development projects. They have built institutions such as health centers, schools etc. All in all, they have been able to offer employment to alot of people within the region.
