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

The Youth Can Change

Have you ever taken time to think why the youth engage in crime ?I dont need an answer !How painful does it feel to lose a friend,classmate or even brother because he has engaged in crime ?Basically the origin of all this is poverty. Thanks to Sadili Oval Sports Academy, many of these idle youths are now busy and can utilise their talent through sport.At the centre they are trained many games:football,tennis etc. The center is also internet enabled so they can spent the rest of their time browsing while idle. Actually this programme has saved lives of many youths who would rather be criminals on their own
