Virtual Teachers Training on Evidenced Based Drug Demand Reduction Intervention in Kenya and Nigeria

WFAD Members, African Youths Initiative on Crime Prevention (Nigeria), Healthy Thinking International (Sweden), Slum Child Foundation (Kenya), and Smart International (Sweden) have carried out a fantastic collaboration through a Cross Continental partnership. The project aimed at added value on the African continent whilst promoting the ideals of WFAD. The partners conducted a six weeks training on drug demand reduction for school teachers. The project which was targeting Africa school teachers came about after an initial two years piloting which was done between Healthy Thinking International and Euticauls Academy in Kibera slums in Nairobi, Kenya.

The results of the project, which were quite impressive in terms of student participation and attendance in school with increased Academic performance and reduction in drug usage among those that participated in the project opened the mindset of the project to be upscale to other region in Kenya as a country and the continent at large.

WFAD wishes to highlight this cross-continental partnership and wonderful collaboration. This type of global collaboration amongst WFAD members is highly commendable and we hope that this impressive project will encourage more members to connect and collaborate across regions and continents.
