For youths to be protected from drugs, I think they should try to engage more in extra curricular activities and always ask themselves how taking drugs could affect their future. My personal message to youths around the...

Prostitution is as a result of the following reasons like; pleasure, curiosity, ignorance and so on. Envy has greatly contributed in a way that people engage themselves in prostitution because they want to have the things that other people have. Sensitization can also help reduce the r...
