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

Give Children Their Right

One day Agnes woke up early. She wanted to go to school but her mother knew without Agnes in the farm the work would not be finished. There are things a child must have in order to grow up. Education which is key to success. Agnes did not want to go to farm. All coffe had to be harvested and taken to the factory before 6.00pm. She pursuaded Agnes to stay at home and help her that was her habit. A neighbour came and found Agnes at home.It was not her first time. Give your girl free education. This is child abuse. Don't overwork your children. They have their rights I can report you to the Authority. All children should allowed to go to school. Agnes mother was shocked and afraid. Since that day Agnes has never missed the school. She was saved by her neighbour who knows the rights of a child.
