The money you donate will make a difference in people's lives especially the needy youth and children who live in poverty and residing in Social Housing.For example the money will be used to address some of the multiple scarring effects of gun violence that directly or indirectly impacts society.This shall be achieved by working collaboratively with the local community to discover and tackle the root causes of our social issues. We shall also use the money you donate to address the youth unemployment, substance abuse, violence, bullying and other health risks. According to World Health Organization,more than 1.1 million adolescents aged 10-19 years died in 2016, over 3000 every day, mostly from preventable or treatable causes.
Therefore, we shall use your donation to improve adolescent sexual and reproductive health, control HIV/AIDS and addiction problem through public health education. Our social Workers and Counsellors shall be able to detect mental health disorders and make appropriate referrals for mental health treatment to prevent suicidal issues and other problems mainly amongst the youth and children. We are aware that depression is one of the leading causes of illness and disability among adolescents, and suicide is the second leading cause of death in adolescents. Violence, poverty, humiliation and feeling devalued can increase the risk of developing mental health problems. Therefore, the money you donate will enabe us building life skills in children and adolescents and providing them with psychosocial support in schools and other community settings to help promote good mental health. We shall use the donated money to create programmes to help strengthen the ties between adolescents and their families which is very important as it reduces mental health problems.
