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

Harambee Stars

I was watching the harambee stars verses Angola match and i was extremely terrified by the way the match was going.with our very own Mc Donald and oliech who were international footballers very silent and tightly marked .i just knew something would not come out of the match.things got worse when the visiting Angola team scored a goal and were on the lead.the problem was that the Kenyan team (harambe stars) lacked a player who could penetrate thought the angolian mid fielder and use the flanks with the ability to distribute the ball to the half time Angola was leading by one score and the kenyan fans were really frustrated.When the second half came in,the coach who is also a coach of a local football club brought in Jamal Mohamed and Mugabe and this were just the right ideas and people who changed the game and just a minute after their entry Jamal equalized by a score.the whole field went wild.twenty minutes later,Mugabe had a cross which led to a score and harambee stars were on the lead and eventually won the match hence reviving the teams hope of qualifying to the Africa nations cup and teams pride and image in the world which has been destroyed
