||Human Life Guide is an NGO that aims to improve peoples' lives and fight against poverty through lobbying and advocacy‚ capacity building programmes‚ and support and promotion of policy. Through its mission, Human Life Guide has successfully achieved the following:
• A tremendous profile in working with youth and development: Through the formation of voluntary social development groups in the Chalinze ward (youth who were at risk of drug and crime), productivity in all aspects of development activities in villages in Bagamoyo district has increased;
• Human Life Guide has also managed to establish school health clubs in 10 primary schools that deal with a self awareness campaign against HIV infection‚ early pregnancies, and peer pressure that leads to behavioral change and drug addiction. With these clubs, and through peer education campaigns and advocacy on drug trafficking to the Bagamoyo district, Human Life Guide is able to reach large numbers of youth with the support of district and village Authorities. Local authorities have acknowledged the NGO’s work, which has paved a way for penetrating the communities and reaching society through activities.
