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


Faulu is in Kenya. Almost every part of our country, every towns, villages, streets and estates. The faulu i know near my place and the one i visited one day pleased me. I was taken there by one of my friends. We went and sat down. I was still a visitor they welcomed me very happily. The teacher come and started teaching. The people there were only girls. We were being tough hoe we live in risky environments. where there is no security. e.g. kibera. They talked about how to dress. Girls should always dress properly. Not wearing small and short clothes that are reaching almost their waist. And wearing tumbo cuts. In this case it may lead to rape. Because if someone wears such clothes she makes boys feel attracted to her. Example if they call her and she refuses to go. They might go and catch her then rape her. I was happy with house most girls were dressing. I also wanted to join their reasons every day they go. May they continue teaching well and also do so.
