“Living in a township, its very horrible, its terrible….you engage in a lot of things….street fights, drugs, alcohol….caused by peer pressure….depends on family background….no one’s around to say hey don’t do it”

Don’t miss this heated conversation about township life where many youths are raised in an environment poised for substance abuse. They raise crucial questions about the effectiveness of support systems meant to eradicate the issue of drug addiction but that neglect to address the broader societal issues.
