The event is about how we can prevent the youth from drug abuse and also trafficking with a focus of improving their lives, their capacity of creating jobs, and prevention of both psychological and social dis-orders.

It is a conference for all youths in the world and the first to be organised in Uganda. The youth are the main factor that determines the development of our localities, their contributions towards development is important because they put in much effort to get what is desired for them.

But today, most of the youths have left out this ideology, reason being they are illiterate, poor, orphaned, vulnerable and unemployed. What they ought to do is to get involved in drug abuse, use and trafficking, as a process, which they hope, will improve on their survival.

The use of these drugs has resulted into problems like death, psychological disorders, theft (some have become armed robbers terrorizing their fellow people) a case that has put many countries on a time bomb.

Therefore we the youth in the whole world we have missed our friends who would have been so resourceful to the development of our localities because of drug abuse, use and trafficking.

Hence, it is our concern as fellow youths to come up and support our brothers and sisters from being affected with this problem by creating a one global idea/vision to fight drug abuse and nicotine fix and trafficking.

We should attend so that we can be able to change our lives, the lives of our brothers and sisters affected by drug use or the way we live by creating alternatives that can give us light in order for achieving sustainable development.
