Introduction Manuela went to bukudomira village to teach the community members about dangers of Alcohol , causes and dangers of early marriages. These lessons are taught to the parents to remind them about what they have forgotten and also to teach their children about that. Overview Manuela reached the village found good numbers of women waiting for her, Manuela rushed to meet them where they were seated, she greeted them and also told them the reason why she delayed. After that, Manuela requested for one person to give an opening prayer for the lessons to start. Nulu prayed, after that, Manuela asked the community members that how many people worked on their home work? Around 16 people rose up their hands and they said that they managed to work on it with their children. Home work session Manuela asked the community members to search for the causes and dangers of early marriages, members who did their home gave in their views that the reason why young girls get married while still young is because of single parenting, admiring things which they can not afford, parents not taking their responsibility as parents to talk to their children, bad peer groups, miss treatment of children at home by steps dad and mother and others, they went on and also explained some of the dangers also, poverty, disease which are sexually transmitted diseases, death due to failure to push, shameful life and among others.

Half of the people in her class do drink, Manuela again asked what make people to drink? They said, for pleasure, due to family inheritance, being send all the time to bring alcohol that can make the youth to start to drink,to make friends, to forget their problems, to gain energy and others, again Manuela asked them what are some dangers of too much consumption of alcohol, they said that, family breakage, poverty, famine, disease like lung cancer, parents failing to pay for their children school fees. After that interaction, Manuela advised the parents in that village to reduce their too much intake of alcohol or even stop taking alcohol completely because too much consuming can lead to so many problems as mentioned above.
