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

Garden Farming

The disabled in the country need a lot of care and maintenance, This has led to the need of the family members being there to help them in their day to day movement. This is due to their need to move from place to place inorder to make ends meet for the youths adults. This makes it difficult for the disabled grownup moving from point A to B. This was evident in the village of kibera called matina. Due to this there was a need to help the Disable in their mobility. This has led to the Disability focus Africa launching a program to by providing the disable with wheelchairs and clutches. They also offered the people in the community with the knowledge on how to take care of the disabled in their families.
