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

Child Abuse

Am a teacher in mzesa academy and there is a girl who comes to school late and when she is in class she sleeps until she should be woken up by others. One time I asked her what was the cause and she said that she normally sleeps late at home and wakes up early to do so jobs in the house so that she comes to school. The girl is having an elder brother who is in class six, whereby I called him and asked all about her sister, he said that the mother whom they are staying with is the one who tells her to do it. I advice the boy atleast to assist her in other works so that she gets atleast time to rest.
