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

Behaviour Change

I am a young girl, Agnes Bakuli aged 11 and I come from shilugu area Kakamega North district. I am a victim or a product of domestic violence. My family has both parents who drink and as a result my siblings and I have had our education compromised. We could be kept out of school to help in the preparation of the local brew. It was not until this year the Ushirika Women group which my mother joined worked so hard to reverse our way of life. They have since August 2012 stepped in to help my parents to change from this trend of constant fighting. The group is currently supporting on education now.
