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

Motorbike As Means Of Transport

Motorbike bodaboda is a great idea all over the country and especially Western region. Most interior part of this region is mainly rough roads (untammarced) hence passenger vehicle rarely passes on them. The motorbike has reduced stress of long and tiresome distances one had to cover few years ago. Good example is the distance between Chavakali and Eregi teachers training college. I congratulate the inventor of this service. It also changed the lifestyle of many youth in these areas as each one is struggling to own atleast one motorbike. But the main challenge comes during the rain seasons when the roads get slippery. Muddy and unaccessable. Also some individual who are against revolution and change give them hard-time has they hijack their motorbike and even killing them. This has make few people fear to own atleast one motorbike.
