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

Combating The "hunger" Problem.

The women in our village had undertaken an imitation to plant food and vegetables in sacks and basins. This was as a result of the prevailing fragile food situation in the country. On this day, the women would be rewarded for their hard work. They seemed happy. They were to be rewarded shopping vouchers after the success of the project. The prizes and rewards motivated others who had not joined the initiative to do so. The women had been awarded free seeds, free irrigating vessels and ideological advice to cater for the project. A huge percentage of the project succeeded. Such projects are good initiatives by foreign NGO's around at solving the problem of food crisis that affects most people. Such projects enable people to survive hunger during long droughts and continue livingg. Surprisingly, many have lost their lives due to hunger in some unaccessed areas in Kenya. I humbly call upon other NGO's and well wishers to start such projects to stabilize the food situation.
