Buddyz For Luv
The Buddyz for Luv project is a youth oriented project which interprets, presents and advocates for behaviour change amongst young people in schools, institutions and communities, through serialised theatre pieces. The thematic focus of the project is to advocate for 50% reduction in teenage pregnancies and 50% reduction in drugs and alcohol abuse amongst the 8‐19 age group.
