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

Me! Not Pregnant

Many young and school going children have found themselves in a trap that some time cannot get out of so easily. Pregnancy among learning pupils and students is at its peak today and most of the girls are usually fathered by older people who are also married with as old as children. Most girls end up not completing their education in order to pursue up next level and have to stay home taking care of their babies. The fathers instead run away and cannot provide for their fathered children hence more poverty and a bad upbringing of the the streets.These has sometimes lead to prostitution and moving to the streets where one can beg for whatever she needs. A lot is being done to reduce these by some organisations such as WEWASAFO and like ministries from the government.
