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

Women In Leadership

They say educate a girl and you'll have educated an entire village.Elect a woman and you'll be electing a solid leader.We were being given a lecture by non other than Wangari Maathai the nobel laureati for Enviroment. Prof. Wangari Mathai was advocating for the electing of women leadership at every level of governance so that affirmative action may be seen since the enactment of the new constitution it had to be implemented. This is what made me become passionate about leadership running for the youth representative in kakamega would see me put important issues facing women addressed urgently.
