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

University Intake

There has always been a problem of students waiting to join universities in Kenya.there has normally been a waiting period of two years before they can join universities and at times most people have lost hope and taken their children to private universities and sometimes this would delay the carriers of most students because if one qualified to join a public university he or she would wait for two years while the one who join a private university immediately after result are out would keep on studying and buy the time he or she is in third year , that when the other one would be joining the public university as a first year. this has been the problem and has created an out log of those waiting to join public universities.however a solution for this problem has been found with the joints admission board announcing a double intake for university students each year to reduce the out log. though it may come with a lot of effects of fees and high number of graduates in years to come with rising level on unemployment,it is he right idea to reduce the high number of form 4 leavers seeking to join universities and keep them at par in terms of carrier
