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

Wife Inheritance

Once in a lifetime in my village wife inheritance was practiced and that a woman who lost her husband had to be inherited this pracitce reached atime when it was discriminated and dangerous due to its effects such as HIV AIDS death cases among others and so many women wanted the practice to be stopped and so with sensitization and proper guidance gradually the practice was coming to an end so that those women who lost their husbands could learn to stay without necessarily being inherited.
