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

Molestation In The Name Of Education

This is a story of a girl Nerea, who used to stay with a brother and his sister in law. In brief the sister in law that is the wife to the brother used to beat up this girl and make her like a house maid while the brother went to work, the frustrations were too much that Nerea went up-country and refused to come back and opted to get married, yet she is suppose to be doing her std8 exams this year. When I heard of this situation I talked to her over the phone she came back but I had to look a place for her to stay so that she can be able to complete her education. She is now staying with a friend of ,my family even though it is quite a distance to the school she attends.
