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

Encouragement For Socially Challenged Individuals

HIV and AIDs infected people usually need some encouragement and sometimes just need people who can sit with them , share with them to make them feel loved and accepted in the society. Usually, they are faced with social challenges where those close friend shy away from them immediately they realise they are infected. Such affected families need support emotionally, materialistically and even love from friends. Nambala realised that this people are overlooked in the community. He decided to come up with an organisation (social club) in which they empower people to respect , promote and protect these people because they are part of the community. The CBO now offers care and support to the orphaned children and people infected with HIV/AIDS
