At ADAPT we are always finding ways to improve our services and to respond to the needs of our community. You can help support our projects by way of Financial Donations or donation of any kind such as books, clothing, food, etc. Volunteering your services during events or simply helping us refine our ideas during brainstorming workshops.
As a community member you can:
Be part of a pressure group to protest against a high level of violence in the media particularly on television.
Help to raise an awareness and prevention programme by organising meetings with your school principal, SRC, youth club, church, local council, in your ward or any other community leader.
Participate in initiatives to form support groups for young women and men in our community. This will create a safe space for young people to discuss issues that affect them and to provide support for other young people.
Form and be part of a lobby group for the establishment of youth development centres and provision of crisis counselling for young people in your community.
Organise parents to be part of the campaign against violence in relationships. The use of corporal punishment in the home legitimizes violence and gives people a message that force is an indication of love.
Encourage your local school to develop educational programmes which promote healthy roles, offer information about sexual violence and teach young people to resolve conflict without resorting to violence.
