  • By getting a job
  • By keeping busy with something else (e.g. schooling/work/joining programmes)
  • By getting motivated (e.g. for changing our own life)
  • By telling  people about our own life experience to help those heading the same wrong direction so they can change their lives while it’s still early and make something better out of their lives
  • By respecting each other
  • Entrepreneurship
  • By using the own skills
  • By using art (e.g. singing, dancing, drawing, craft, guitar playing)
  • Through the shelter
  • Through education
  • Through financial support
  • Through commitments
  • Through quitting drugs
  • Through good behaviour
