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

The Boy Child

Everybody is campaigning about the girl child rights.Many campaigns have been carried out and harsh legislations rolled out against those who abuse the rights of a girl child.But the boy child has been left out and forgotten.Nobody thinks that the boy child is in anydanger.Even as they suffer due to physical abuse,rejection,sexual abuse and identity crisis. Thanks now that UNICEF is tracing back the lost glory of the boy child.They are now campaigning and making sure that the boy child is back onthe Spotlight and that his rights are being observed.Sodomy is onthe rise,drug abuse is over the rooftops and unless someone does something ,the boy child will be extinct.
