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

The Second Chance To Lead Good Lives

Most of Kenya's youth are now beneficiaries after receiving guidance and counseling on how to lead a good life. They are now important people in the society. They used to lead bad lives which were full of drug abuse, crime and unpeaceful too. Every day, there would be cases of robbery or deaths caused by overdosing of harmful drugs. Parents would also be troubled and faced with much problems that brought about differences between them and their children. But since an organisation called NACADA decided to help the youths, we have seen a great change in our country. Many youths who were slaves to the harmful drugs are now free people. They have been given second chances to show that they are capable of building stable society. NACADA has helped the homeless drug addicts by providing them with shelter. Those who used to take part in crimes have been given jobs too. They also vowed to never take or get involved in drug abuse, thanks to NACADA.
