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


Pamoja F.M is one of the pioneer radio station in the slum and they have greatly helped in addressing issues concerning the slum and its dwellers.It was started by an university graduate who wanted to open up a big radio station company but due to the legal procedures one had to take to open a radio station proved to be very expensive and tiresome.So one day as he was at home he was listening to the radio and was very dissapointed by it westernised content and there is where he came up with the idea of opening up a local station. it started on a low note because it was different because it used a local language but soon it caught up and people started switching from westernised radio station to the local one. It is mainly concerned with kibera and mostly addresses issues concerning the area.We are informed on different events taking place and functions.We are even given tips on the best eating and relaxing spots in the slum.kudos to their good work.
