Harm Reduction Services for 200 addicts in Kenya

Summary

Addiction destroys families, children and community livelihood. African divine church self help group with other local networks works together to reduce substance abuse, especially among youth, and improve alcohol policies to protect our youth. We see a world where children can grow up in safe, healthy families and live free from addiction. We also see a world where people already harmed by addiction have access to treatment.

Challenge

Challenge African divine church is offering assistance to over 200 youth in harm reduction and psychosocial support. It is worrisome to note that nothing is being done at a national level to ensure the health and treatment of such youth once their matters are finalized in the formal justice system. Children are exposed to a lot of abuse in mathare slum settings and often suffer from depression. Once they are out they have nothing to do and end up committing crimes.

Solution

We will provide care and support to drug users, remove them from slums and link them up with their families where possible. If not the drug users will be removed from their spot areas to youth friendly environments where they will receive counselling, vocational training and support from our Unit.Each youth will be assigned a community health volunteer to help them with treatment services and counselling and follow up will be done.

Long-Term Impact

We will help 200 remove from their spot areas, we will train youth into self help projects. Communities will be free from criminal activities.
