NEWSDRUG ABUSE SEMINAR2013-06-28
At the end of May, SEED's community development workers organised a drug abuse seminar in Mufakose, a suburb in Harare.
A qualified social worker from the Department of Social Welfare addressed students and staff at the Victorious Learning Institute, the secondary school that SEED helped to establish a couple of years ago. In a country of extreme poverty and 85% unemployment, drug abuse is a real temptation for graduates and others.
The talk was followed by group discussions and a quiz session to help students consolidate and apply what they had heard to themselves. Students then developed a drama that they hope to take into other schools in order to help educate other young people about the risks of substance abuse.
We are also exploring the possibility of using our experience in skills development to partner with the Department of Social Welfare on a rehabilitation project.
