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

Youth Behaviour Change

My name is Brian Mapesa.I live in an area where the youths have really moved from the ideal paths.Majority of them associate in premarital,irresponsible,unprotected sex.This has lead to spread of diseases such as HIV/AIDS and sexually transmitted diseases being on the rise.An NGO (non-govenrmental organisation)based in our area realised the problem and from last year they went ahead the programme on behaviour change targeting the youth specifically.they went as far as visiting schools and informing the students on behaviour change and matters to do with HIV/AIDS.From then upto date,I see that our youth have atleast changed and the problem is not a worse as it used to be.
