Review for G O A L PROJECT, Ambridge, PA, USA

Rating: 3 stars  

My name is pastor Francis odhiambo,Director upako centre Nairobi.I was trained by GOAL Project on how to reachout to addicted members of our society in 2005 in Nairobi,and after the training,GOAL supported and we now have 5 AA and PLWHA support groups IN Nairobi.

We now do church ministry in a different way after we realised that addicted persons need a unique way of outreach and they find their identity with others in the support groups which is very helpful.

In my context,a slum in Nairobi where alcohol destroys lives of young people who could be resourceful in transforming the situation in the area,the addiction program is currently helping in a big way and we really thank God for the GOAL PROJECT work over the years.

Role:  Volunteer & after training,i started a community addiction prevention program and formed support groups for members.
