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

Girl Child Education

My father doesn't believe in girl child education and so when my sister received a form one admission letter from Kaimosi Girls, he didn't even see any meaning or significance of it and so he just kept quiet about the issue and when he was asked why he had money and he didn't want to take Molly to join form one at Kaimosi he said that girls were not supposed to go that far in education. Thanks to my uncle Mr Levy Barasaa who took the responsibility and took my sister Molly to Kaimosi where he was admitted as a form one student and today she is doing really well.
