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
