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

Respect Is Needed

I will never forget last December what happened to my brother. In our community there are different types of people with different attitudes our neighbour who is near the roadside he had planted his fence and left no place to pass. My brother with his good heart decided to burn the fence so that even a car can pass. Woh wonders of this word! i was flabbergasted. Within a minute the village elders were there he was taken to the police station and fined two thousand shillings. To this i am trying to ask for more details where we will find good people to come and unite people especially our young generation for sure in our community there is no peace even with the small kids. The solution is our village elders should come together with some people to start to start an organisation called Nyooka team.I it is going to work in time so that we can have harmony.
