Second Chance Trust
Second Chance Trust educates children and youth on the dangers of alcohol and substance abuse and empowers them with the knowledge and skills to make healty life choices. It also facilitates interventions that promote healing and growth in victims of social issues such as rape, HIV, abuse and gangsterism - which are often directly or indirectly associated with drug and alcohol abuse.
The Trust has a solid reputation for delivering appropriate, innovative and impactful programs. It works extensively with schools and partnering organisations that focus on children, youth and adults whose lives have been affected - directly or indirectly - through substance abuse. Since 2012, over 270 000 children, youth and adults have benefited through Second Chance Trust programs.
The Trust works with young people from all social backrounds but has a primary interest in low income communities where children and youth are particularly vulnerable to substance abuse due to early and ongoing exposure to extreme poverty, violence and crime. These young people are less like to have access to social support services and more likely to use alcohol and drugs to escape the hardship otheir lives.
