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

The Pink Type Of Men

The pink type of guys are those men who lack the inner structure in them that can help them stand on their own.They are type of guys who are swayed by situations and circumstances and they give in the direction of wind.This situation made most of young boys and men in my community lose direction and focus in life.In great need to save the situation,the media personalities,Caroline Mutoko,Larry Asego and Jalang'o through the KISS 100FM invited a great speaker on the "Man -up Monday"programme. Since this is the programme most young people listen to,the presenters took this time to educate most youths all over the country.This was an achievement and a great one especially in my community since most youth were heard about some complaining while others appreciating the talk. This is one move by the radio station that youth to change their perspectives in life and focus n being responsible in the community.
