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

Solution Of Problems By The Un.

It was on 12th Monday, April in 2010. It was about one o'clock in the afternoon when United Nation held their meeting in Bamburi district in Mombasa Kenya. The main aim of the meeting was helping those communities solve some problems. These problems were solved by helping them by giving food, provide school materials like textbooks and pens. Also making plans of building an orphanage. Advice families on family planning and how to live a good life. They also offered jobs to the men who had no jobs. That was the best idea made by UN because many people benefited from it. Many people were also greatful to the UN. This day will stack in my mind like magnet. The UN really made the best solution.


  • The organization most involved in what happened: United Nations
