It has become a common phenomenon for youths, both males and females, to be taking drugs, thinking they are eliminating their stress and worries. However, this habit they have adopted is very harmful to their health – mentally, physically, emotionally, psychologically, spiritually, educationally, financially and otherwise.
Africa Young Leaders (AYL) would embark on a one week campaign from 19th June in order to fight this dreaded habit. Everyday during this campaign week, we shall be posting news and stories that would educate the youths not to be taking drugs. These stories and posts would be followed with the hashtag #WarAgainstDrugAbuse.
The AYL social media campaign week would end on 26th June, which is generally known, regarded and celebrated worldwide as the International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking.
