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

Wisdom Class

Make any man wise and all his problem have been solved.Many people and organisation don't take into consideration this vital issue when they roll their plans for the youth in kibera slums.They feed so much resources to a young generation that thrive on foolishness,pride and arrogance thus the little knowledge they get up tying them down to their death bed. Goldmine foundation has however taken this into a huge consideration.Through their wisdom class programme,they have been able to keep the youth enlighted about the physical and pschological neccessities about life.Wisdom class blends reality talk and bibilcal touch and aims at ensuring that the youth have neccessary information that not only gides their lives worldy but also biblically.This is a unique trend that should be encouraged among the pre-existing and upcoming organisations to take into heavy consideration.
