Explain your project in details:

The school to school drug awareness program will educate youths and teenagers about the dangers and effects of drug use and abuse. The awareness reconcile both self development and drug education using visual presentations, we work with some repentant addicts who share there experiences and stories. After the awareness, students who show interest in joining the school drug free club are talked to about the vision and mission of the club before being registered. Two club leaders are selected among the students and a supervisor which should be a staff and are schedule for leadership training. After the confirmation of the members, ID tags are provided for them, and any student with spacial need like addiction or depression is attended to by our volunteer professionals. though the M.O.U we submitted to some reputable rehabilitation centers are not yet signed, we try our best to see that we help them through counselling and routing meeting before we get the signing done. The school clubs will be registered and their activities posted on our website, our website which is purely information base also encourage Club members who are good in poetry, painting, drawing, article, and photography when their works can depicts the dangers and effects of drug abuse by publishing them. We are really working hard on working with some rehabilitation centers to give us 50% discount for some teen patient who want to be helped but cannot afford the bill, where the patient pays 50% of the discount and i pay 50% from donations we received from volunteers. i am hoping on establishing my own standard youth rehabilitation center because the fees charged in all the rehabilitation centers in Nigeria is unaffordable high. this program is stretched to community and religious Organizations, but most of our attention ise

Impact of your enterprise on sustainable development

About 15.5 million students enroll into senior secondary school in Nigeria each year. this teenagers are on a daily basis faced with the decision to drink, smoke, or do drugs be it from the media, their peers, the environment and in most cases their cultures. the quality of their decision is 100% dependant on the kind and quality of information they have. a research we conducted on 972 full blown addict in 2016, shows that 85% addict started using drugs before age of 19 and 80% said they never knew it will get them to where they are. if early exposure and ignorance form the basis of addiction, the best way to curb it is through early awareness. My state to state school to school program has reached out to 93 Schools reaching 38 schools in Abuja, 42 in Nassarawa and 13 in plateau state. we where able to create drug free clubs which are headed by two students and directed by a staff. We have a comprehensive club manual which serve as a guide for the club, members are thought the media effect on teens choice concerning drugs, how to overcome peer pressure, and also how to create awareness. We have 3438 active Club members and some of which are already spreading the awareness to other Schools and religious Organizations. During our first ever national drug awareness convention, we hard in attendance over 250 participants from different schools, we heard talks from the road safety, police, NDLEA, and some NGOs we are working with. We are presently working on signing an M.O.U. with few rehabilitation centers where we can have 50% discount on their fee in which volunteer pay 25%, the patient pays 25% this is for those teen addicts that shows they need

Sustainability and future plans

My future plan aside from covering every Schools in Nigeria and creating in them a drug free club each, aligning it with the N.Y.S.C, NAFDAC and NDLEA program, is to make the the federal government see the need to make drug education a compulsory part of the school curriculum at all Schools level. I also have the plans to establish a standard and an affordable rehabilitation centers in all the geopolitical regions in the country where teenagers who need help but cannot afford it will be treated. I also have the plans of creating a recreational centers for youths and teenagers to enroll in at an affordable price so as to get them engaged during holidays and to give their lives a meaning. All this we tend to achieve using both my personal fund and funds from individuals and Organizations who share the same passion. we are having in our plan to get the government fully involve with the awareness program at both Federal, State, and local government. As it is now the plateau state government has agreed to sponsor the awareness program in 12 local government of the state so we are trying to see how either some individuals or Organizations or even the local government councils, will sponsor the awareness in the rest of the state. And that is how we intend to do for the rest of the states. Intend to get all the necessary government institution to be part of this.

I was raised in an environment where drug use is a norm. Growing up with an addictive father and watching my best friends waste their lives with drugs motivated me. My best friend was admitted into the hospital, after series of test and scans nothing was found wrong with him. the last scan shows that one of his kidneys has shrink into a stone like form and the other is also shrinking. He died at exactly one week four days he died. the tragedy of the story is not in his death but in the last conversation we had. He said ''if only I can turn back time to where it all started, I would have said no to my elder brother when he was introducing him to marijuana''. my best friend and allot of addicts out there ignorantly started using drugs before the age of nineteen. If only they where informed before time, most of them would have made a different choice. it hurts to losea

Its absolutely the way forward & i will like to be part of it.
Drug or substance abuse is a contemporary issue & has devastating effects sadly a lot of youths abuse substances.

May 20, 2019 01:08

This is a very good one from you!drug and substance abuse is on the high side now to the point young folks are over dosing on drugs and with your awareness, people would be able to come to the epiphany of drug abuse and how dangerous it is to the society at large.
