Coalition Project for drug prevention
Community for anti-drug coalitions of America is an NGO based in Alexandria, Virginia, United States. Fondation Joseph Lagesse, through its manager, Mrs. Martine Hennequin, started a collaboration with CADCA for a period of 2 years to empower 4 communities in Mauritius in drug prevention. Barkly, Bois Marchand, Solitude and Mangalkhan are the 4 communities benefitting from a 2-year training program in drug prevention and coalition building. Fondation Joseph Lagesse is the national coordinator for this project, through its community development department.
According to CADCA’s criteria for the success of the program, 12 sectors need to be represented in the coalition: youth, business owners, parents, local organizations, religious bodies, education, health, law enforcement, media, youth-run organizations, civic and volunteer groups, state or local authorities.
