Give Me A Chance And I Will Do It

Kids play an important role in society just like any other member. Recently i witnessed a friend mobilize kids (children) between age of twelve and tasked them with cleaning of six compounds in one weekend. First the kids agreed to volunteer and seek permission from there parents which they did. then they assembled at one point, started moving and and getting into any compound within their vicinity and started off with cleaning. Within no time many more had accompanied them and by the end of the week a total fifty eight children and ten +-homesteads were very clean. They then started playing hide and seek games in the compound hence bringing into attention the owners. They then talked to them the importance of cleanness for healthy living.
