Kenya: Free to Be Me Without Drugs

Categories: Kenya, Digital Storytelling, Microblogging

Drug abuse is prevalent in Malindi. Finding strategies for drug abuse prevention and rehabilitation of users are some of the things that the society is trying to do. My proposal is to use digital media to highlight the issues surrounding drug abuse. This includes adverse effects of drug abuse like HIV prevalence, violence against women, the struggles of drug addicts and why it is so easy for drugs to find their way into the society. Our proposal is to train young people on how they can use the digital platform to blog and share their stories on these issues in an effort to eradicate drug abuse
