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

Discrimination Against The Girl-child

Once in my village there was a happening whereby weer given much priority than girls, so there was a family with two boys and three girls and these two boys were regarded much important than these girls even when it came to academic, the boys were given first priority. The two boys went to school together with the three girls, on the contrary the girls did well than the boys and the parents were really disappointed, then one of the learned teacher in the village advised the parents to treat both the girls and boys without any discrimination, this in deed rectified the problem ultimately and both the three girls and two boys were treated equally.
