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

Stigma

Kyonjo now a good village with good community members was once the worst community with cruel abussive and irresponsible people. These people were at high degrees of stigmatisation and discrimination whwn a person felt sick for along time they thought, he or she had suffered from HIV. The patients of such kind could vacate the place to get relief. It was not until 2009 that TASO (the Aids support organisation) visited the villaged, that the problem got solved. This organisation organised seminars at community level to teach people about HIV and it's impacts. They also taught as well as helped those that were stigmatised and those who who stigmatise. Our village is now a good village with good people.
