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

I would like to welcome you on the site. I see that you are applying to the Voices of the Future 2010 project like me. It is an exciting experience and I am really glad to read from you. I hope we can share ideas and befriend before the program starts.

I have been dealing with drug and alcohol addiction and abuse too and it would be interested to talk to you about it and see what similarities or differences exist between different countries and how you approach the topic.

Wish you a pleasant journey on this site and hope you enjoy the free atmosphere here.
