The drug free youth is one of Stowelink’s flagship programmes that focused on creating awareness of the effects of drugs on health and linking them to non-communicable diseases. the project led to the development of a masterpiece anthology called the Drug Free Youth.
Here is an extract from the book
Have you ever thought of how we could make difficult subjects interesting, how we could make boring subjects interesting and, in this case, then how we can make health interesting, especially to the young people? This is what this short collective is all about. Having thought critically in my earlier years as a health professional and an artist, I always wanted to solve the puzzle, to crack the case especially around how you can make health interesting to the youth and eventually how you could make any subject interesting and fun. And in my many years of research and creative thinking I found that we could use poetry for health and boom! This collective is a prove that this actually works.
Compiling this works of art predominantly from Kenya was every bit fun and insightful and inspiring. The drug free youth poetry contest was a project under Stowelink, which is a company I founded, where we invited youth from all over the country to talk about drug abuse and how drug abuse links up to the development of non-communicable diseases. the poetry contest attracted a readership of over 300,000 people in one month’s period and I couldn’t be happier to have documented the top pieces of this contest in this amazing book.
These pieces of poetry could be used in schools, institutions, and learning centers across all ages to get the message out on drug abuse and also to teach the populations on non-communicable diseases. I know you are ready to dive in and have this great out of body experience and excitement just as I felt writing and compiling these pieces!
