    I need volunteers, to help us develop these slums and help nature the talents of the youth, children and women here, and also empower them. For instance, we have an event that is going to take place in the rural areas around Lake Victoria. The event is organized to help support people with disabilities, therefore we'd like to have volunteers with medical experiences, cycling experience someone good in proposal writing, people with photography experience , and also people who'd help raise funds to support the event.
    Apart from the specifications listed above , we also need any kind of volunteers as long as they are interested in this kind of project.
