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


today many farmers do not make it long together as our grandfathers and mothers did.They started long forever till death did them part as they vowed. Many families and or young couples fall into laove without big reasons to justify their love which latter brings conflicts raising due to infidelity within the marriage. Couples move out of their marriages to engage insexual activities out of marriage.most of them are carried away by old men who tend to provide more goodies such as money among others. some of these cases have lead o death because one of the couple may not need explanations hence angry and easy to kill. There is need to carry out a thorough counselling on newly married please help curb these.
