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

Joint Efforts Bear More Success

The support Groups within Kakamega North have formable framework through which it will be easier to make a direct impact in the community. So as to also share takes and empower the people and go for joint funding that can directly reflect, this has been seen to be a better approach for more effectiveness and transparency. This year the Elephant Welfare Group and Jisaidie Support Group joined forces and have come under Ufunguo Child Role model Development to pursue objectively that they hope will change the community largely. Through this initiative beneficiaries are lined along people in the community faced with hardships like widows, orphans vulnerable children and any other people with disabilities. Our community has had many such people who through this approach are bound to benefit.
