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

Finally Solved Problem

Building houses is one of the most problem that has been affecting the residents of Kibera. You would wonder how the residents of Kibera survive the bad enviroment they are living in. Recently members held a meeting and discussed their problems but there wasn't a solution. Whenever they held a meeting, the members had no ideas and a solution of making a better life. Previously, an organization in the name of National Economic Development Council (NEDC) came and made a solution for the residents of Kibera. They said that they were going to build houses for every parent and for each family in the cruel enviroment of Kibera. Within a week time, the organisation started to build houses for the residents of Kibera everyone was happy and at last every family was having a well-built house which was made of iron sheets and a standing foundation. The mebers agreed and appreciates what the National Economic Development Council did to the resident.
