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

Improvement Of Disciplinary Methods As Opposed To Child Abuse

Ten years ago, a teacher was disciplining a school girl and hit her several times before she fell down and died. This practice has been common and although death was not always the result, many children suffered untold pain. There then came organizations that sought ton change this punitive corporal approach. One such organization that hit an impact is Kenya Alliance for advancement of Child rights (KAACR) which till now had a real impact in bringing about a human and dignified way of handling pupils in the society.
