Programs

PEER TO PEER EDUCATION FOR YOUTH

Through our peer to peer education program, we offer young people a learning and empowering opportunity in their role as educators. Through training workshops, young people are supported to promote health messages among their peers in school-wide or community-wide settings.

DRUG EDUCATION FOR YOUTH

Through our “Know More, Risk Less” program, we conduct interactive workshops and discussion groups and provide reading material to educate youth about substance use.

LIFE SKILLS EDUCATION FOR CHILDREN & YOUTH

Our Life Skills programs combine skillbuilding & knowledge-based lessons on substances like alcohol and tobacco, in the aim of improving refusal skills towards substance use among children and young people. We also provide capacity building workshops for teachers and other school staff members. We support schools in integrating the program in the school’s curriculum, making drug prevention easy to implement & sustainable.

PARENTING FOR PREVENTION

Our “Parenting for Prevention” program helps parents and caregivers understand their important role in preventing substance use in their family. The program addresses issues that concern today’s parents and enhance their skills to effectively communicate with their children on substance use and seek support when needed.

CAPACITY BUILDING FOR PROFESSIONALS

We provide capacity building workshops for a wide range of professionals (healthcare providers, policy-makers, teachers, social workers, NGOs) on prevention best practices, providing them with scientific information related to substance use, adaptable to their specific needs and communities. The workshop works on enhancing their skills and knowledge to implement prevention interventions addressing youth and caregivers in their respective communities.
