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

Training In Education And Hiv/aids

This organisation is known as Taka Ni Pato Foundation which helps girls and boys through teaching them how they could protect themselves through various diseases that has no cure like HIV/AIDS, hygiene and encouraging us to stop early marriages because that is why we get diseases like syphilis and gonorrheal and cancer. In another way it helps us in education training that teach us here and what we can achieve our goals in future to come and what we can achieve different goals.In this, Taka Ni Pato Foundation has helped many people in many ways like giving them training/seminars. In order to know what we are supposed to do in future. This foundation is very important and I want to encourage other people to open theirs to help children in Kibera who there parents are not able to pay for them school fees.
