Grant amount £4,010.00

Back in 2014, we announced that we had awarded a grant to Siyakhona, a South African organisation using tech and video to warn young people of the dangers posed by substance abuse. Targeting at-risk young people, Siyakhona’s aim was to highlight the problem of substance abuse and generate open discussions about the issue among school pupils, their teachers and others. Two videos were completed during the project lifecycle and Siyakhona formed new partnerships in an effort to get the films seen by as wide an audience as possible. We’re happy to announce that we have provided a further follow-on grant of £4,010 to help Siyakhona continue to promote the videos and increase their audience.
