Bringing an end to the scourge of substance abuse is at the heart of what we do at the MTN Foundation, through our Anti-Substance Abuse Project (ASAP) initiative.
Launched in 2018, our primary goal has been to deliver interventions that contribute to a significant reduction in the rate of first-time use of addictive substances and drugs amongst young Nigerians aged between 10 and 25 years. We do not seek to vilify or castigate. The goal is to educate on the dangers of drug abuse and hopefully, inspire them to believe in a brighter future. We believe that concerted efforts towards awareness and engagement is a leap in the right direction to end this menace.
In commemoration of the United Nations International Day against Drug and Substance Abuse on Friday, June 26, we will be hosting a zoom seminar in collaboration with Business Day, NETng and MTV Base with the theme “Better Knowledge for Better Care”.
Join us and a select panel of expert stakeholders, on what promises to be an impactful event as we discuss the various ways substance abuse destroys and what we can do to end it.
