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

Ignorance Is No Defence

When i was young their used to be many people in uniform riding on by motorcycles around training the elderly (parents) on use of contraceptives or in short. Family planning methods.Today many young people do not have any knowledge on family planning matters despite the efforts by health sector in the country even though not so enough. Contraceptives helps many people plan their families i.e regulate on the number of children they wish to have in regard to their social economic status. These was revived recently when a social health worker came to our house and talked to my parents about games,planning ways. His name was rent and worked with Hiv/Aids section of the larger western water and sanitation forum. This i believe is slwly picking up and parents are realizing on importance of child control thus can provide for a smaller family
