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

When Still Young

When we were still young we used to go swimming in one of the rivers in our area. We would gather and then go for a swimming competition in that river commonly known in that area as "Munambale". This were did secretly becaseu our parents were against it. One time we disturbingly went swimming as usually and this time round things turned sour because just as we had got into the river we saw this huge and fierce looking python moving towards us. For us who were already in the water had no choice but to urinate and faint. Dont remember but that became the end of us ever going to swim in that river.
