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

Girl We Can

I am Allan Chemei from scheme.In our area we have an organisation called Trans-Nzoia youths sports association(TYSA) under this there is a project called"Girls we can" it has really changed the behaviors of girls i.e moral,spiritual,academically and socially. Through this project many girls have changed the way of life from bad to good, example: Irene,Emily and Mercy these girls used to take alcohol and had no interest in education but now they have total changed and now now they have total interest in learning and they are being supported financially and they might go far.These girls have helped other girls join the project. This organisation also support who give birth at the early stage to go back to school and even others back to colleges.I also propose that we should have "Boys we can" to help other boys who have gone astray.
