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

Early Break-ups

Early marriages in Africa have been characterised by early breakages and divorces. In many parts, poverty has lead to many girls getting married just because their parents can have the dowry paid to them. In real sense, the girls are not usually mature, psychologically and sometimes physically to keep an upright family. Girl child education and activities need to carry out proper education on the children especially we have in school hence reduce the rate at which they get married and concentrate on education. Someone need to help me carry out these course since it's on the increase for the last six months.
