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

Drug Addiction

Drug addiction was a very big problem among the youths in my community as many of them used different drugs like bhang,khat, alcohol and changaa.This made them not to indulge in any constructive economical activity and by this crime rate also risen tremendously and by this NACADA came in for the rescue of our future leaders and generation and they did this by organizing seminars that were aimed at educating the youths against drugs and teaching them on harmful impacts of drugs after three months of pure counseling and education most of the youths stopped using drugs and instead engaged in constructive economical activities.
