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

Drug Abuse

Drug abuse is one of the problems affecting the youths. it does not sound well that most of the youth in our country are drug addictive. this has been a challenge to our communities and even the government. its unfortunate that many youths do not finish their education because of abuse. this is majorly because they spend most of their time in drugs which finally hinder their learning system the government also experience a big challenge since potential youth who may offer labour force to reduce work load in industries are mostly affected with drugs divorce cases also arise due to drug abuse. This is due to lack of responsibility by the married couples. it can be either a mother or a father. to do away with drug abuse the government should put inplace strict rules concerning the use of drugs. Those who may be found violating the rules should be given a punishment and face the law
