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

The Girl Child

Small girls in many different interior communite suffer from the ''cut''. Most of them seek shelter from nearby churches or schools. FGM specialised mostly in the Kisii community and Nandi community.A friend of mine from the UN together with some NGO's form Kenya are lying hard to stop the torture on our girls. They try to set up girl school only in order to help those who run away from 'cut'. It is understood that if a girl child refuses to go through the 'cut' they are tortured to death. The members of parliament are readily lying had to put this bill that forbids FGM.
