Short description:
ASPAT/ ACC promotes abstinence from drugs and alcohol in order to attain a climate of economic and social change. Senegal, like many countries, is badly impacted when its citizens become dependent on drugs and alcohol or heavily affected by AIDS: crime increases, families suffer, and individuals become less productive members of the society. ASPAT/ACC and its members strive to create a more peaceful and productive society through activism that builds temperance and solidarity within communities across Senegal.
