  1. The consequences of drug abuse are the main cause of about 75% of health hazards among youths, coupled with the High rate in criminality (Juvenile Delinquency, violence, insecurity, Terrorism; road accidents, school dropout, etc…) Development projects without financial support have been abandoned and abject poverty is the order of the day. The youths constitute 70 % of the Cameroonian population including school children, on whom they rely, for their future social insurance, to improve their sustainability and other development projects. Assisting these communities require operations and financial support from the international grants opportunities for safety and security operations by NDAPA.
