Knife & gang culture

Knife crime and bullying have become more common in youth society today. Self-defence is not a reasonable excuse for carrying a knife. Young people feel the need to carry knives because of various reasons; a feeling of safety, peer pressure – in order to fit in, gang culture, to look tough and show off, for misguided respect. Unfortunately, it’s difficult to stop the supply of knives. There are far reaching consequences for everyone involved; loved one’s lost forever, prison sentences or community service, reputation lost and stigma for life.

Drug & alcohol abuse

Some youth regularly use drugs or alcohol to compensate for anxiety, depression or lack of positive social skills.

It’s true that being a young person can be stressful and there can be a lot of pressure to fit in and it can be hard to just be yourself. Peer pressure is all around and it can be difficult to say no to bad habits. Turning to drugs and alcohol is detrimental to life. 1000 young people under age of 15 are admitted to hospital each year with acute poisoning. All need treatment but some die. Alcohol can affect all aspects of one’s life.

Domestic Violence

Domestic violence is destructive for both the battered and batterer. It’s tendency to be passed down over generations makes it all the more important that we develop effective methods for combating abusive behaviour. We carry out grass root campaigns to raise awareness of the vice in the community and engage in advocacy with law enforcement and local departments of social services.

  • There are far too many teenagers who have little or no direction and are involved with the wrong crowds.
    They struggle with the build-up of emotion, anger and aggression – with no outlet. Young people are most
    likely to experiment with drugs and alcohol than adults.

    We advocate alternative avenues or activities for youth to engage in. one of them is boxing; it’s a non-violent
    sport and it teaches discipline, gives one self-esteem and a sense of achievement. Most importantly, it teaches
    risk and that all actions have risk attached to them. When they join such a program, they would be supervised
    in a safe environment.

        For over 5 years, SpringAid has equipped individuals with advocacy skills necessary to become true agents of change. We have devised unique methods of training, coaching and supporting individuals to overcome resignation about their ability to make a difference, to a voice their opinions and to work strategically with others to build public support for ending poverty and inequality.

        Whether you’re a seasoned advocate or only just starting to realise your potential to generate the political will to end poverty, we will help you become as effective as possible in taking actions as well as developing champions for the eradication of poverty and inequality in your community.
