  1. Adversity, together we can overcome.

    Posted by Regina Stratti on 14th Nov 2018

    An uncomfortable emotional reality, expressed by young boys coming to terms with their troubled lives.
    The adversity they have travelled and acknowledgement of their at risk behaviours, follows their self determination too reprogram their thinking styles. This is a monumental achievement giving hope to all young people and carers.
    The passion of one man to start a way forward using what tools he knows best, his dogs, clean living, family, love and dedication.
    This film should be introduce into the school curriculum for late primary and senior students.
    A great tool for youth workers working with yp at risk.
