Smashed Live, a live theatre drama-based education initiative, on a mission to tackle underage drinking, especially among students.

Unveiling Smashed Live: Empowering a Generation


The theme of Smashed Uganda’s program is "Alcohol Education to Empower a Generation," and it's a global campaign with an ambitious target of reaching 10,000,000 young people by 2030. Mirembe Exodus College located in Wakiso and Rubaga Mixed Secondary School located in Jjeza Mityana Road hosted the very first Smashed Live presentation in the month of July, on 01st July 2023. The program has reached an astounding number of schools across the country along different roads that is; Masaka Road, Hoima Road, Mityana Road, Bombo Road and the City Center.

A Journey of Awareness

During the school outreach activities, thousands of students have had their eyes opened to the social and emotional causes of underage drinking. Smashed Uganda believes in arming Young people with knowledge, and there it is doing an exceptional job at it! Through the drama-based education, students are mainly learning about the harmful effects of alcohol on their bodies and the available avenues to seek help if they fall victim to the vice of underage drinking.





Unmasking the Culprit: Peer Pressure


The captivating drama unfolds, revealing the lives of three young individuals. Two of them are students, while one is a school dropout. As the story unravels, the audience witnesses the dangerous impact of Peer pressure, a leading cause of underage drinking. Smashed Uganda skilfully weaves this narrative, shedding light on the desperate need to fit in that many students face. The drama serves as a wake-up call, urging young people to make informed decisions and resist the pressures that may lead them astray.





The Key Message: Fostering Responsible Choices.


But Smashed Uganda doesn't stop at raising awareness. No way! It goes the extra mile to teach students the importance of making healthy and informed decisions that will shape their lives now, and later as responsible adults. By equipping young minds with the knowledge and tools to navigate the challenges they encounter, Smashed Uganda is surely building a brighter future for Uganda's Youth.
