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

Agricultural Knowledge In Slums

They came the issues of mothers single mother who don't have worked or are not employed some were not only single mothers but they were abadoned by their husbands due to this they did not have money to rise up their families that ends up to high rate of school dropouts of teenager for this occasion a certain organization improve their standards of living by promoting them with the agricultural tool and knowledge of doing agriculture of planting vegetable such as tomatoes(sukumawiki) kale and spinach they got knowledge that without even having a shamba they can plant in sacks (gunias) and the vegetable can be sold by them or they can trade for them to get what they don't have e.g if sold they can get money to pay their rents and their children school fees this limits the rate of school dropouts mostly in slums like KIbera & Mathare. This organisation we can say it also leds to self employment and led to increase in population for their is enough food for the people in the area which will limit the theft of things as everybody is busy with his or her work.
