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

Supporting Youths In Life Child

In our society there is an organization known as Kibera help child youth. This organisation has really helped many in the society because many youths in the society are idlers and some are poor. The organisation provided alot of activities like hair dressing, tailoring and carpentry. Many girls who were disabled were supported by the organisation and they were taught beauty and hairdressing and some were taught how tailor. Boys were shown how to make equipments and selling them. The money they earned helped them alot they were able to buy themselves clothes e.t.c. So the organisation has promoted many youths because some were chokoras and some had practised many theft which could lead them to death but due to the organisation it has changed many leading to job employment.
