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

Our Well Maintained Environment

Mine goes to the youths that have been taking good care of people in our community i being a resident in kibera,i appreciate the youth for their time that they have been offering taking part in many types of activities like planting trees,planting vegetables in sacks,they used to seat idle and doing alot of nothing but nowadays they do good things to us. Before the youth association started we did not have well maintained latrines,they were given money from CDF and they have come up with very beatiful latrines because waste should be properly disposed,they have also come up with ideas of waste disposal,they have been issuing us with polythene bags then every sunday they take the waste and dispose it where it should be.
