About Me: 

I am concerned about the high rate of young people engaging in drug and substance abuse and have realised that majority of them pick up the habit from home. I would like to pursue any avenue that would help enlighten the families about the adverse effects of storing and making drugs, alcohol and other substances accessible at home.

My Passions: 
is educate families on dangers of drug and alcohol substance
My Challenges: 
lack of forum to communicate this, lack of technical capacity to generate information education materials that are specific and that woudl help pass across this message. lack of access to media houses due to the high charges put on advertisements.
My Vision for the Future: 
create a network and have forums/talk shows where people/families and young people can come and share their experiences on what drugs have done to them and for those who have overcome the problem, how and what they did to overcome as well as give advise
My Areas of Expertise: 
counselling and training
