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

Accountability And Transparency Heads The Group

A youth group which existed in our community was the road to restoring the lost glory by participating in several socio-economic activities. Initially got funding from one of a political aspirant interms of poultry enterprise (broilers). they properly managed it and it later stage sold off and this generated income for them. The money obtained was for buying and distributing the goats to the members as a plan. they bought these female goats and distributed to the chairman, general security and treasurer respectively and this created some misunderstanding among the members & executives. Later on reports reached the members that two goats died but the meat or money from it wasn't accounted for by the executives. this created a row between then members went and collected the remaining goat, sold it and distributed among themselves and was the last life day of the group.
