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

Girl Child

Girl child in Africa face a lot of problems. Its seen that its better to educate a boy than a girl can be given a chance she can take the country far. For example we have a country's the president is a woman therefore I believe a girl child can do more than what the pple think. The only thing I think need to be done is to change the mentally that a girl child chore is only in the house. There are many problems that girl child face the way forward is to attend to their problem for example provide free education, improve the sanitation cause its very poor. If girl child is given a chance we can go far and we hope come 2012 Martha Karua will win the presidency so to prove to the naive Kenyans that girl child can do much work. We women we have all it takes. What a man do a woman can also do.
