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

Focus On Youth

There is a famous man in the neighborhood of the village who came up with a football tournament .At the beginning it covered only one village(Kaliwa) but after a few months it was well vast to the location .Every village in the location (Waitaluk) produced atleast one team registered with its couch .The man financed all the activites of team.The winners were given different types of awards.The main purpose for him to start the tournament was to reduced drug abuse coz alot of youth idled around and as the English man said idled mind is the devils workshop.Since the tournament began alot of youth hve stopped using drugs and know the useful activities like opening up small business.I would be unfair if don't mention this the tournament is planning to expand and start a football tournament for women know people can live a peace with the youth who have been refreshed from drugs.
