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

Th Youth Enterprise Funds

In Kenya many youth have been idol for so many years without any development. This used to provoke them involve themselves in cases and criminal offences for them to earn their living but now we are happy for the ministry of youth in giving some funds through loans to the youth for them to start businesses of their own and get money for their lives. Youths have now improved and criminal cases are reducing in our country.
