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

Women Are More Transparent And Open Minded.

My name is Omoro Voscar, a social worker from the District Gender and Social Development office in Kakamega Central District. I have watched women in their quest to bring up a new order of life in the social, economic and physical well-being in society and I was quick to conclude that they have a masters degree in concluding things. In 2010 Kenyatta University arranged for an opportunity to do capacity building for women in the province of Western. They congregated at a hotel in Kakamega town for a week. They were lively, vigourous, vibrant, reasonable, curious, active in participation and free in sharing ideas on how to become better assets/agents of change in society. They were open minded, transformed and shared their experience so much that at the end each one was even richer. They have moved forward, upgraded their own status and transformed themselves tremendously.
