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

Resist Use Of Drugs

The story am going to tell was inspired and taught me so much in life. Drugs are a menace to the society today. Many youth have em,barredon drugs and forgotten their vital responsibility at the society. Many rural areas here in western province kakamega county have farms but no one to fill just because young people say they need more request work /jobs other than working in farms. Their is need for youths be educated and taught that there is what even pays more. An organization came into my village out documentary on the new number as today drugs they even rehabilitated some girls and currently are at a children home
