Plan

We intend to gain influence and accomplish our goals by building an organisation that is driven by committed and involved members.

Our target is to convert every South African citizen to this end.

Our financial stability depends on monthly membership donations, corporate CSR funding and funding from philanthropic foundations that will empower us to be accountable to nothing else other than our constitution, our members and the laws of South Africa.

Because addiction is a social and health issue, our cause is a humanitarian one and not political. We therefore believe that it is possible to achieve a substantial membership that is able to exert formidable pressure on government as all of our members are potential voters.
