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

Preserving The Youths Dignity

KWOSP is an organisation specialised in the needs of Kenyan widows and orphans. Apart from it catering for the widows and orphans in the nation of Kenya,it also offers free training services to the youths within the slums of Nairobi to become better peer educators amongst themselves. It champions the youths minds,reminding them that they are young and as well important to the societies well being. It trains the youths to maintain their dignity by the rule of abstinence. It also conducts seminars through which an open forum is provided for the youth to discuss and solve their emerging grievances in the current society. The organisation has helped and trained many youths who are either students in primary,secondary and colleges. This helps in spreading the theme of abstainence all over the regions of Nairobi. May the almighty God,expand the territotries of KWOSP organization in order that they may continue offering the services,because thro' this our country is certain of better leaders in future.
