WFAD Member, Centre for Peace Advancement and Socio-Economic Development (CPAED), implemented a youth-led substance and drug abuse program from July-December 2018, in ten drug affected communities of  Kaduna state, Nigeria, tagged “Community youth sensitization and re-orientation on danger of drug abuse and political thuggery” aimed at encouraging youth to play active role in fostering the understanding of substance and drug abuse and generate positive changes that will connect others for local action in fight against drug abuse to achieve sustainable  development.

With the goal of reducing the growing level youth perpetrated violence and involvement in substance and drug abuse, we delivered critical on-going integrated education, health, psychosocial and counseling support to help young people achieve positive health behaviours and live productive  lifestyle free from substance and drug abuse.   The effort is being launched in partnership with UNODC, Nexus Fund, Civil Society Network for Substance and drug abuse(CSNetSDA) and NDLEA who supported the successful implementation of the  program.
