Support for Addiction and Prevention in Africa

BOARD OF DIRECTORS
 
SAPTA intends to expand its services in and beyond Kenya and generate additional funding for a range of exciting new initiatives, including: inpatient/demonstration farm for slum and rural alcoholics and drug addicts; social business enterprises supporting recovering addicts; distance addiction counseling learning; and establishing a hotline for those suffering from addictions or affected by it.
To this end, SAPTA has hired leaders and professional men and women who serve SAPTA as Board Members. They are:
  • committed to our mission, objectives and values;
  • in good standing in their communities;
  • with current or recent experience in corporate management, legal activism, financial management or banking;
  • understand the nature of substance and chemical abuse and are moved to dedicate their time and energy to addressing these personal issues and related societal impact, such as: gender violence, child abuse, HIV/AIDS and TB, and criminal activity;
  • can contribute to our fundraising by acting as an ambassador and networker for SAPTA, providing good stewardship of our resources and by direct involvement in fundraising activities; and
  • Most importantly, individuals who have a personal passion for this area, possibly through the negative effects of addiction on family members, friends or colleagues and the positive effects of treatment.
