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

Kenya Wildlife Service

Kenya Wildlife Service is an organisation discouraging poaching and deforestation in Kenya. The government of Kenya has deployed more ranges to protect those forests but there efforts seem not to be bearing fruits. People in my community are really destroying the Ngong forests and the government seems to be doing nothing about it. in about two years to come the forest would have even finished. Some of the people in my community are hunting down the wild animals such as elephants for their tusks since they cost a lot of money. This tusks are then exported to other countries. Lately the government has arrested some people trying to escape with the tusks but this is too little. More is to be done if corruption stops in this organisation.
