The young people in our society are facing challenges more daunting and perplexing than any we have seen in all of history: drugs and violence. Year after year, these challenges claim lives, extinguishing bright futures and harming society as a whole. The longer that we allow these challenges to go unmet, the more damage they are going to cause us all. It is not enough to say that we are upset; we need to take bold action and stand up for what we know is right. It is our duty to engage with youths, parents, authorities, and service providers to address the violent killings and drug abuse that remain endemic in areas across the nation.
At Movement against Drugs and Violence (MADAV), we pledge to our part. Our strategy involves outreach, education, regular discussions with all involved parties, live campaign events, training programs, workshops and seminars, and a centre to involve young people in film and radio production, teaching them valuable skills they can get excited about.
We need to do this. Our goal through this campaign is to raise £12,000 in order to create a short film following the recently performed stage play organised by MADAV at the Junior Boot Camp completed on the 25th July 2019 by young persons 10-18yr olds.
The youths were so excited at the boot camp and they all agreed we need to produce a film as soon as possible to reiterate the message on how young people get lured into crime and reasons not to succumb to peer pressure.
It will help the youths to find purpose and discouraged others from getting involved drugs and violence .
We'd be very happy if we could raise the funds by the end of August 2019 and start production as soon as possible.
Thank you for stepping up and changing the world with us!
