Challenge

The fabrics of our society have been invaded by enormous social challenges but the most common one is the alcohol and drug use. Because of its availability, affordability and accessibility, the youth have always been seen and found taking it at will hence, falling into its grips exposing them to episodes of many side effects. Hundreds of lives have been ruined , affecting not only the users but, the whole family and government in many ways. The youth 10-30 years will be targeted.

Solution

Through sports, passionate and committed volunteers will be identified who will join other leaders in NUCSEP. These will receive training on how to identify and approach those consuming alcohol and drugs and rehabilitate those that have fallen victims through providing them with entrepreneurship skills for recovery and resilience. Through partnership model, the project will work with different stakeholders such as teachers, political and religious leaders to holistically support each other .

Long-Term Impact

Change in community mindset about youth as a whole, as a result, the youth will be viewed as partners in development and a respected asset to community, engaged in activities that promote self-understanding, self-worth and a sense of belonging and resilience. The reached 500 youth will develop positive civic identity, sense of collective efficacy, collaborative planning, decision-making, critical social consciousness and self control.
