Consequences Of Addiction And How To Solve Them.

The Bunyore quarry has become an employment area for young boys, one case is of two friend of mine. It all started with a joke. Koech and Noti would sneak out of school and go to the quarry for a period of two hours and each of them a hundred shillings. The pay was not equal to the work but their did not care they saw a chance to get quick money.The is become a routine sometimes they would miss a lesson of the day so as earn extra money, this affected they academic performance. Koech and Noti who were always number one were now operating at position sixteen and twenty. This continued for a long time until the school administration intervened.Noti and Kpech were counseled. Noti and Koech took in the advice and stopped attending the quarry business. Hence improved their academics.
