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

Togetehr Forever

Groups such as women, men, youth keep people with a particular goal together for a purpose they wish to achieve. These groups be it formal or informal have in a big way changed the lifes of some people in a particular way be it behavior, social or economically. When people have a vision to carrying out some project or activity, they come together, brainstorm and forge the way forward. These is what a department of gender & Governance from an NGO-WEWASAFO has done to so many such groups by training members on group dynamics and cohesiveness hence putting & maintaining together the group. Budgeting was also taught and hence becoming responsible and meaningful to whatever small. These was great to beneficiary like me.
