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

Alcohol To Be Eliminated

Drud and substance abuse has been a factor that has undermined education and social relations in our society. most of the students have been blocked from pursuing their education to much higher levels in our society. An organization that had been developed by the people in our society had to come up and set up a mechanism that the people could not be able to access their basic needs. The organization has been focused to see what is not good to the society is eliminated and everything is brought back to normal. This has been seen as creating rehab that has created a number of addicts that has been to the best. This has set a milestone to the rest of the other villages has developed a larger series of what is seen as a larger initiative in our society thus propel education today. The addicts had to pass through a series of process that could at last make them able to access good education in return make them able to be good citizens in our country and make everything possible in our society.
