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

Hiv/aids Killer Diseases

Many young girls and women at the coast are abused sexually by older men. They are forced to drop out of school due to lack of school fees and poverty. They end up working in sexual institutions without knowing that there are consequences afterward. The young girls display themselves along the beaches and streets at night to wait for men who are coming from work. They end up being affected by STIs and the killer HIV that does not have a cure. The police institution has been trying their best to put a stop to this problem but they have failed. An NGO came up and build schools and provided free education fro girls and to put a stop to girls roaming around the street looking for money through sex. They have also build homes for the homeless young girls and women, which has brought a change to many girls in Mombasa and solved the spread of HIV/AIDS.
