Social Problems

one of the things that make the youth of today indulge in things that are not of beneficiary to the community is the social problem of drinking.drinking among the youth in the villages have contributed to a lot of problems at homes that ave led to disarray of marriages and school drop out. the guiding and counselling people who visited our school advised us to shun drinking of alcohol as it would spoil our lives and see to it that we educate other youth from drinking illegal drinks brewed in the villages.
