  • The Concerned Young People of South Africa |Who are we?

  • Vision

    We recognize the uniqueness of every young person. We believe they should grow up in safe environments, free from all forms of abuse and danger. We believe that society’s moral standard can be restored if we as a country stand united against social ills.
  • Our Mission

    Voicing the various needs of communities. Creating awareness of social ills in our society. Showing the way out to drug addicts, prostitutes, porn slaves etc. Shaking up the “comfort-zone dwellers” who say that the problem is not theirs.
  • Our Aim

    Our primary aim is to restore the moral fibre and backbone back into society, and in the process of doing so, to eradicate social ills. Efforts in this direction take the form of awareness campaigns run throughout the country, where we warn society of the truth surrounding vices such as drug abuse, pornography, human trafficking and immorality.
  • Correctional Facilities

    We visit correctional facilities with a message of hope for inmates based on reconciliation and forgiveness within their communities. We see jails as a viable source to strengthen the economy of South Africa. Our vision is to re-incorporate inmates back into society and support them in fulfilling their role as responsible citizens of South Africa.
  • The Community

    We consider it our responsibility to voice the needs, concerns and challenges of those communities who are often overlooked .
  • The Youth

    The youth of today are the future leaders of our country. We know that prevention is better than cure, and by making the youth aware of the dangers present in society today, we will help them to avoid finding themselves the victims of drug addiction, prostitution, human trafficking and criminality tomorrow. We endeavour to play a role in ensuring the brightest possible futures for the youth of South Africa.
  • Literature

    We distribute thousands of pamphlets to the public and to learners and educators during our sessions at schools. These pamphlets expose the dangers of a range of vices and also include our contact details to aid those who are seeking help.
  • Creating Awareness

    We believe prevention is better than cure and visit communities, schools, NGO's, NPO's, the SAPS, governmental and traditional leaders, correctional facilities, universities and radio stations to raise awareness, to educate and to highlight current events that are of concern to us as an organization.

The Dagga Debate

  • Argument 1: They say ... cigarettes and alcohol kill thousands every year and are legal, yet nobody has ever died as a result of smoking dagga and it remains ILLEGAL... but... +

    "What about cigarettes and alcohol?" is a red herring regularly thrown the public's way by those advocating the legalization of dagga in South Africa.   Nobody in South Africa can Read More

  • Argument 3: They say… dagga has never killed anyone, anywhere, ever, but… +

    Another argument you will hear regularly from pro-legalization lobbyists is that dagga has never killed anyone, as opposed to other socially acceptable substances (which are legal), 'hard' drugs and even Read More
  • Argument 4: They say... prohibition doesn't work, but... +

    Pro-legalization lobbyists love the word 'prohibition' as it carries with it certain connotations. They seek to remind people of the failed alcohol prohibition in America in the 1920's as if Read More
  • Argument 5: They say… it’s my right to use dagga, but… +

    The fact that we have human rights does not mean that we have the right to do whatever we want. Lobbyists are fighting for their right to use dagga, almost equating Read More
