Youth Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment in the Community of Macassar, South-Africa (GG1758160)

The aim of the program is to build skills within a community by supporting a team of professionals that will travel abroad to train or learn. Building on the experience of last year's cooperation with the Macassar schools, the project wants to come to a well-founded drug prevention policy at high schools in Western Cape, South Africa. These schools make use of the services of the Mudita Foundation who works with the wishes and day to day practice of the schools involved. The presence of a GGD Amsterdam specialist is contributing to the process.
