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

Child Abuse

Linah a young girl under 18 years, she is forced by her father to marry an old man of her fathers age. But Linah herself is nit ready. She decides that she better run away from home because of her fathers cruelty who keeps on quarreling an insulting her because she doesn't want to get married. Her father is curious of the riches that the old man is promising to give for Linah. As clever as she is Linah approached her father face to face and informed him that she will not get married before she finishes her school . In response her father accepted her demand and left her to study first. This shows that young girls (mateen) have alot of temptations, thus to abandon them they should be self responsible and principled like Linah. The government of Kenya has helped young people in provision of FBE and FCE in accordance.
