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

Mpango Was Kando

The Kenyan community has experienced a rise in the rate of HIV/AIDS transmission in married couples that singles call it fornication or adultery but its levels in married couples was so shocking and discouraging that most youths had to think twice and ask themselves alot of questions before thinking of marrying or getting married. But to rise and built up marriages, the programme"Acha Mpango wa Kando" started and this idea has since become one of the best ideas to end infidelity in marriage. In its most recent advertisement, it focuses on the costs spend by a man on an outside woman which far outweighs his salary. To any many who is logic and has sense that should teach him a lesson. The initiative has focused both men and women in marriage and all I can say is tat its working. Marriages are being revived, coupes are coming to terms with reality and all is almost well.
