Say Yes to Life

Main aim of the charity

The main aim of my charity cause is to free youth from dugs. this will bring peace, heath and safety to the community.

How the employee got involved and why

I got involved in this charitable cause after receiving an invitation from the leader of the " Generation with a Purpose Association" to help them writing letters to local entities and i found my self interested in their activities. When i was a teenager a cousin had is life destroyed due drug addiction. Things and the family were never the same again. I don't want to see people/families suffering as a consequence of drugs and alcohol addiction. i want to contribute for a better Mozambique , for a better future for my daughter, for my nephews and the youth in Mozambique. i see myself facing challenging situations with great reward for those who are in need.

What work does the employee do for charity?

currently I have been involved in one to one conversation with people either addicted or relative to addicted people, counseling and talking about the will of God regarding any type of addiction and the damages that drugs can do to a human body, mind and soul. i am doing some administrative work and giving support with the process of arrange a big space (land) where we are planning to start a farm and build the shelter to accommodate addicted people. i help with logistics such as transport, food and other materials for other volunteers when going to the space that we arranged. i have started (at home) to plant trees that will be needed in the farm. i do some personal donations as well

What impact would winning have on the charity?

There's a group of people that no word or counseling works. lectures at schools and jails will have a better impact if a rehabilitation center exists. these people need to be segregated from their families/friends/environment and go through all steps for a proper rehabilitation. this group of people would benefit from the rehabilitation center and be able to be re-integrated into society renewed and strong to face challenges and have another chance to a better life also, more people can be assisted at the same time.

What impact would winning have on the employee?

wining would have a positive impact on me. i just want to be a vessel of blessings to others who need to live a better and happy life. to help people as much as possible. i would think in helping people in a large scale.
