Dagoretti South is one of the constituencies in Nairobi County Kenya. The constituency is home to a number of abattoirs that supply Nairobi and it's environs with beef and other meat products. The trade in meat contributes to the economy of the locality. There are other small scale businesses as well. The school dropout rates and low transition rates have affected the area thus sending many young people unprepared to the business world. Once they start earning, many have no idea what awaits them and thus start indulging with consumption of alcohol, khat, muguka among other drugs and substances. Later on they get introduced to much hard drugs like cocaine, heroine, etc.
The drug menace is a major issue contributing the country and mainly affects the youthful generation. This has reduced them to zombies and drooling figures thus wasting their prime lives. Many have lost their lives while still trying to escape from the menace. There has been little or no help forthcoming. The community is tired of burying the youth and now want to save as many lives as it is possible through rehabilitation, treatment and medication.
This is however a very expensive venture that requires the support of all people of good will and caring angels.
