2015  PROJECT PROFILES

AFRICA UNIVERSITY

SECTION A –

Adrenalin Rush

We were distributing fliers and talking to athletes at the National Youth games and spreading awareness on how alcohol affects their performance and the people who surround them.

Mirror Mirror

For two weeks, members were distributing fliers on effects of alcohol, tips on how to drink responsibly, and as well conversing with students on compass and drivers along Nyanga road.

Let me SHOW you

Team members for two days were distributing information at the Mutare Agriculture Show engaging parents, kids and alcohol drinkers and stating how binge drinking and underage drinking affects their biological and mental system . We also presented to a crowd on the Coca Cola stand at the show.

Crash Coarse

We had a roadblock initiative where we distributed fliers and talked to drivers and passengers with the help of ZRP and Traffic safety council Zimbabwe at the Penhalonga turn-off along Mutare Road.

We were taking time to learn from motorists and as well tell them about drinking and driving and how it can have negative results.

Mind Goals

After being engaged by a worker at the college who was a Chiefs council man in Dirihori, Svosve district and also an executive member of a Soccer league started in Svosve Village based on trying to curb the number of teenage parenting cases, drug abuse, and alcohol abuse we came in to make some development. We agreed with the league executive to come up with ways to generate income and as well before and during matches tell attendees to drink responsibly and stop some of the acts of misdemeanor in society as well as engage children and make presentations in schools.

We signed an MOU between us and the executive league member who approached us who was representing the league executive.

A team member donated a printer to help them start generating money.

Catch Them Bo’R’d

This was based on the sheer number of people who board buses on a daily basis.

The idea was to show a video on the buses TV’s outlining the effects of alcohol and as well providing tips on how to drink responsibly, printing of tips on how to drink responsibly and the effects of excessive drinking, and lastly stickers that would be put on the bus.

So far we have engaged the operations director from Tenda who has collected the video to be placed in the buses and a meeting for Monday has been scheduled where an MOU will be signed.

Project descriptions

Zim-aware

After having an open awareness campaign in 2014, we further took it to Zimaware. On this project we were targeting the driving population, drinking population, university students and local youths after we had discovered drinking and driving, social disorder, domestic violence and binge drinking. We utilized the rank committees that had been formed in 2014 as we worked together in this project. So we impacted people through distribution of fliers, stickers as well as key holders. We also had marches in Bindura together with SAYWHAT and also Mai Chisamba show at Bindura University in collaboration with Zimbabwe United Nations Association. A march in Chitungwiza was done together with junction 24 and traffic council of Zimbabwe.

TELL A TALE

In 2014 we worked with students in Bindura in our project Catch them young however, we worked on empowering the communities and this time we took it to the next level as we targeted Bindura and Marondera. This project targeted the under aged, the parents, university students and other community members. Students were doing articles which includes essay writing and poetry. They went on to have debate competitions. We also worked with religious sects as they are part of the targeted through fellowships. They were being alerted on the health effects of alcohol and finding ways to mitigate alcohol abuse in societies.

TELL ME CAMPAIGN

The previous year, under zim-connect we had the media as our channel to the nation. On the tell me campaign, we used the media, networking workshops, public dialogues and marches to lobby and advocate. This project targeted the beer retailers, the drinking population, the driving, nursing mothers, the youths, business persons and other influential stakeholders as we did our lobbying and advocacy. In this project, Kenako media house was our major partner as we worked with them in utilizing the media by sharing messages on their social platforms.

WOMEN’S UNIVERSITY IN AFRICA

SECTION A – Project Names and brief description, collaborations to be included and attest to the evidence of MOU/As.

POJECT NAMES AND BRIEF DESCRIPTIONS

Catch them young continued…

This is a continuous project of Boost WUA’s partnership from last year with the National Junior Council Association of Zimbabwe (NJCA) which deals with junior councilors in Zimbabwe. A workshop held at Chinhoyi High School where Boost WUA also participated in an organised conference and march by NJCA dedicating over 382 hours to the project. We directly impacted 212 junior councilors present and indirectly over 33000 students in high schools and colleges as well as their neighbourhoods. For sustainability a whatsapp group was created with 22 junior councilors. In addition the partnership agreement extends to other future workshops to be conducted by NJCA which Boost WUA will participate in.

STREET WISE REAL TALK

Boos WUA partnered with Destiny for Women and Youth Empowerment an organisation that deals with the jobless and homeless children on the street. A workshop was conducted at the Oloma church in the CBD where the team directly impacted over 46 homeless street children dedicating 350 hours to this project. To date Boost WUA in partnership Destiny assists the children in giving food and clothing and employment. The group has expanded to over 55 children.

HEVO ZIVO

In this project the team partnered with Denmak Training Services College where we had the chance to educate the classes from form 3-6 dedicating over 91 hours to this campaign. We directly impacted 253 students, directly impacting 570 full time students and 271 part time professional course students. A boost support group was formed which consists of 7 students to date based at Denmak who meet once a week to discuss matters relating to alcohol abuse nationwide irrespective of gender.

REAL BEAUTY REAL VIRTUE (MISS WUA)

This project was a beauty pageant themed Real Beauty Real Virtues, A Fight Against Alcohol Abuse! Firstly the team advertised this event in different shopping centres which include, Avondale, Sam Levy’s Village, Eastgate, Westgate, Joina City and Longcheng Plaza where the team took advantage of this opportunity to spread the word of alcohol abuse in these shopping areas investing 132 hours. We directly impacted over 660 people in all shopping areas joint. At the Miss WUA event, we had an attendance of 150 people which were directly impacted who were in the ages of 17-40years. In that regard Miss Wua winner is now Boost WUA’s brand ambassador in spreading the alcohol abuse in all functions that she attends.

ROADSHOW

On the 5th of October 2015 Boost WUA again partnered with Destiny for Women and Youth Empowerment in conducting a roadshow for the fight against alcohol abuse in the CBD. The marched went from 1st and Jason Moyo to Harare Gardens stage area dedicating 62 hours to this event. We directly impacted approximately 746 people who were in the CBD at that time. As this was an action taken in response to the newspaper headline of “Herald of 1 October 2015”, stating the slashing of alcohol prices and our worry of accidents caused by alcohol abuse as well as underage drinking.

SECTION B – Key Measurable Indicators

ITEM PROJECT NAME NUMBERS REACHED
Targeted driving populations ROADSHOW, MISS WUA 1556
Targeted under-age persons CATCH THEM YOUNG, STREET WISE, HEVO ZIVO, 520
Targeted parents for under-age campaigns ROADSHOW, MISS WUA, 1556
Targeted drinking populations MISS WUA, ROADSHOW, STREET WISE 1611

TARGETED DRIVING POPULATIONS

To get to 1556 people we calculated this way. For the roadshow it was an estimate of 746 people in the CBD at that present time from 9-12am as there was no time to make followups.

For MISS WUA firstly the shopping centres campaign was calculated as follows. The team had 22 members present including the models, each person interacting with atleast 5 people at each shopping and we visited 6 shopping centres. Thus it will be 22*5 = 110 people each shopping centre multiplied byt 6 shopping centrers equally to 660 … then add 150 people present at the actual event. i.e 660 + 746 + 150 = 1556.

TARGETED UNDERAGE PERSONS

To get to 520 we added our direct impacts of the following projects Hevo Zivo, Catch Them Young and Street Wise which will be 253 students, 212 councilors and 55 kids respectively. i.e 253 + 212 + 55 = 520.

For targeted parents of underage drinking refer to calculation of 1556 above.

TARGETED DRINKING POPULATION.

MISS WUA and Road show amounted to 1556 joint then we add street wise figure of 55 i.e 1556 + 55 = 1611.

SECTION C – 2014 Project Sustainability

What was done to ensure continuity of 2014 projects.

Boost WUA has continued with the CATCH THEM YOUNG project from last year. This has been done through signing an agreement with the president which allows Boost WUA to take part in the various events which are organised by the NJCA. Due to this long lasting agreement we now have direct communication with not only the junior councilors but also the senior councilors.

CHINHOYI UNIVERSITY OF TECHNOLOGY

DELTA ETHICS REPORT

Background

As a team we took ourselves above the influence focusing on

-underage drinking

-drinking and driving

-elicit brews

UNDERAGE DRINKING

Background

We used the case of 2015 of 28 students who took part in the nude party in Westgate. After research and brainstorming we had from the minors in Chinhoyi, as a team we came up with reasons why minors are being involved in alcohol abuse. These include

-peer pressure

-teenage adolescence

-following up on their parents’ footsteps

-irresponsible elders in the society

Activities

As a team we managed to come up with a number of activities to curb underage drinking which included; school campaigns, focus groups which encompassed pupils’ parents, bar managers and the Zimbabwe Republic of police to reinforce the notion

SCHOOL CAMPAIGNS

Activities:

The team managed to plan and visited schools in Chinhoyi, to educate the students on the effects of alcohol abuse, underage drinking as well as drunken driving. At these school campaigns we managed to do interactive sessions, discussing the issues related to alcohol abuse, finding ways to stop and discourage alcohol abuse. This was all done in a two way communication where the students gave their views basing on their knowledge and the team would respond and add more vital information to educate and give direction without the use of alcohol to the students.

Results:

We managed to make the students clearly understand the effects of alcohol abuse and to realize the dangers of misusing alcohol. Students who attended this responded to us confirming the change we impacted in them through this campaign. They became teachers to their counterparts, reducing dangers associated with lack of knowledge at these various schools.

Challenges:

Although we managed to do the campaigns some students retaliated and saw this platform as an opportunity to make noise, and disturb others from paying attention.

FOCUS GROUPS

Activities

We managed to invite parents, bar managers and the ZRP for a brainstorming session to assist the on alcohol abuse, we managed to reach a consensus on restricting minors from buying alcohol.

Challenges

Not every parent attended the meeting

Results

With the help of the ZRP random checks we being done to see if the selling alcohol was still done. It was confirmed that the rate of selling alcohol to the minors reduced since our intervention. Parents also testified that most of their children were now transformed

DRINKING AND DRIVING

Background

Case of 21 July 2015 of accidents caused by drinking and driving supported also by the ZRP statistics which stated that the rate of cases influenced by drinking and driving have increased with an exponential rate. As a team we noticed that Drinking and driving has been of paramount influence in the number of accidents we are experiencing in our country. To curb this we organised a number of awareness rank campaigns and organised meeting with the traffic association.

THE RANK CAMPAIGN

Activities:

Our team went to Traffic Safety Council of Zimbabwe (TCSZ) and the Zimbabwe Republic of Police (ZRP) in Chinhoyi to seek permission and assistance in our campaigns. The campaign started at 9 in the morning. During the campaign some of the team members were on a public speaker together with the officials from the TCSZ and ZRP, educating the drivers, touts and all the present passengers. We went on and glued stickers to all the traffic we could come across with that day.

Challenges:

Although we tried to convince most of the drivers and touts at the rank as well as the passengers at the rank, the majority of them responded well and more people came in numbers to support the campaign. However   a few resisted, this was because some refused to allow our members to put stickers on their vehicles. Some of them were busy – they could not give attention to our campaigns

Results:

We managed to put stickers on more than 45 commuter omnibuses which had a direct impact of around 47 touts and driver. Furthermore this project also indirectly impacted more than 360 passengers on the rank. Not forgetting some of the private car owners who allowed us to put the stickers on their vehicles, as well as giving them a brief on the effects of alcohol abuse and drunken driving

Media

BREATHALYZERS

Activities

In Zimbabwe they is a range of alcohol content necessary for driving. The mechanism for checking the amount of alcohol on road was not available, therefore we managed to import breathalysers from China and gave one to our local Police.

ELICIT BREWS

Background

We researched that the group which used these type of drugs were touts, taxi drivers, commuter drivers and the youth around us. We researched with our food science lab and realised that these drugs contain more than the maximum alcohol content one could take. Therefore they are said to be harmful to human nervous system. We went on and decided to undertake awareness campaigns to educate this group of people.

Activities

We focused on a number of commuter drivers and touts. We had discussions with this group of people discouraging them on using this deadly drug. Additionally we also had a mass lecture at our university which was held on the 16th of September.

Challenges

Most of the people using this are now addicts therefore they could not attend to this lecture and the campaign. Most of the taxi and commuter drivers protested that these elicit brews influence the way they work

Results

We impacted a number of drivers who actually testified they had stopped using elicit brews after we taught them of how these brews affect their health.

SOCIAL MEDIA COVERAGE

Activities

We went to ZTV were we managed to get a platform on the morning news teaching both youth and the minors on alcohol abuse. Additionally we were given a platform on Star fm to educate also against alcohol abuse. We collaborated with Victor Kunonga who became the face of our campaign.

HARARE INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY

Project Details
Project Name: Project Hope
Project Start Date:   16 August 2015  –

Target Audience: All males and females between the age of 14 and 25
Direct Impact
No of Women:  68
No of men:    180
Direct Impact:  248
Project Partner: Mr Casper Chigwedere (local politician)
Project Description
The Boost team at HIT engaged the Mountain of Hope community. Kids in this area work
hard doing some odd jobs to earn a few dollars but unfortunately, the bulk of that meagre
amount is spent in purchasing some illicit brews. Many elders in this community spend
their money in beerhalls and leave some insufficient funds to cater for the family’s needs.
Our team implemented three initiatives in this area to solve some of these problems:
PlaySport
We organized a soccer and football tournament with the assistance of Mr Casper
Chigwedere. The project was based on the notion that when people play sport, they
reduce their time on alcohol and especially illicit brews. The tournament will be held
a year and players will always meet to play some social fixtures in their wards on
weekends.
Project Proposals
We taught community members the art of crafting a good project proposal. The
community was facing some challenges in writing proposals and we believe that if a
few projects are started, the community will become more productive and
individuals will spend less time on alcohol.
Financial Literacy
Many people purchase alcohol that they cannot afford in their budgets and thereby
leaving families with meagre amounts that cannot sustain the family for a month .
We ran a financial literacy program where we educated community members on
how budget their finances.
Project Name: The Submerge Challenge
Project Start Date:  12 June 2015-    Project End Date: -Target Audience: HIT Students
Direct Impact:  331
No of men:    195
No of women:  136
Project Description:
This was particularly the most exciting project we undertook. Participants would dunk their
heads in a bucket full of water as a symbolic act of drowning the habit of alcohol abuse.
The competitive nature of this initiative caught the attention of many students on campus
and many students would eagerly await to see the best time in that challenge. We took
this opportunity to discuss issues concerning alcohol that affected the students. The team
took the challenge to the Mountain of Hope community in Hwedza and Mount Pleasant.

Project Partners:  Min of Health (Mental Dept), ZNFP, Michael Mhlanga
Project Description:
We held some interactive discussions with the students during the Annual Technovation
Day at the Harare Institute of Technology. We discussed the following topics during the
day:
1. Children of Alcoholics
2. The dark side of underage drinking
The students also played a game called the unstacking game that taught them that the
effects of alcohol can affect everyone. Our team disbursed 120 booklets to four schools
that were identified at the event. These booklets contained information pertaining to the
subject matter. These booklets were shared on a rotational basis amongst 5 students and
therefore 600 students read the booklet.

********************************************

MIDLANDS STATE UNIVERSITY

Our campaign project for this year was under the umbrella name #AbuseAlcoholForWhat. This
was a two tier campaign with the first one being:
1.  CatchThemYoung
This campaign was targeted towards underage drinkers that is anyone below the legal
age of 18. Our assessment revealed that cases of underage drinking, illicit brewing and
binge drinking was rampant in high school students thus we decided to focus on high
school students in Harare, Masvingo and Gweru.
In Harare we worked with schools such as Hillbright Science College, Herentials Group
of Colleges, Denmark College and Direct Contact College. In Masvingo we partnered
with Scripture Union Zimbabwe where at their 70th anniversary we presented to students
from over 43 along with the teachers, parents and church leaders present.
In Gweru we had two campaigns; the first was the march in the CBD on the
‘International day of Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking’ with dignitaries from the United
Nations, World Health Organisation, Ministry of Health and Child Welfare, Gweru City
Council etc.
Furthermore we took part on our university’s open day where over 60 schools attended.
In all these avenues we also distributed brochures, fliers and our animated Chinyangiri
video.
2.  DriveSoberArriveAlive
We targeted drivers in the Midlands Province where we partnered with over 8 of the
major filling stations in Gweru. We also engaged local night clubs in a bid to distribute
our campaign posters.
In addition to the above campaigns, we also targeted the media houses, PR platforms and used
social media. We partnered with Star FM at their outside broadcasts. We were hosted on ZiFM
Stereo on the Y Zone talk show.

In addition we published an article in the Dailynews newspaper, as measure of sustainability
Dailynews agreed to give us a weekly column in its weekly publication. A top ‘O’ level author
Freedom Gengezha wants the article to be in his book as a study guide.
We went on to work with artists which includes the multi award winning artist Jah Prayzer, other
musicians such as Yoz and Legion.

Project Name Brief Description Collaborations

v  Say What!

iFuture v  Off late, Bulawayo has been referred to as he city of drunkards therefore there was a need for us to engage mainly those affected and taking part in this practice of alcohol abuse as is reflected in the media. We visited high schools in and around Bulawayo and engaged in conversations with the school fellows.
  v  We participated during the International Youth Day Annual Commemorations which were held at Crowne Plaza in Harare and we did present our initiative to all the stakeholders that were there present including the Hon. Minister Christopher Mushowe during the main event. Our main message was to encourage youths to build communities and empower themselves without abusing Drugs and Alcohol. v  Inspire One Million
#iMedia v  iSober was our main tagline that we used on all our media campaigns. Our Facebook and twitter accounts were the main interaction platforms that we used to share posts, pictures, news and some vital statistics about alcohol abuse. We also went live on air on Star fm and we have a number of articles which we submitted to the Herald and Sunday Mail and we have been told their publications will start soon. v  Star Fm
