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

Rich Fisheries Poorfisher

Fisherman in suna District would cutch alot of fish but at the end of the day due t o lack of storange they would see it athrow away price. The middean also took that opportunity to exploit them while knowing they had no where else to take their fish.They would buy at avery cheap price and export at a high pricesthus the fisher folk who were fishing rich fish remained poor for long. In the year 2002 Africanow came in the area and identified the need of storage for fish.The organised the fisher men in groups and gave them cooler boxes,now the fishermen can store their fish and sell their prices and not throw away prices. They are also not exploited by middlemen as they have bargainning power.
