To promote education and a healthy, drug-free life, Kaunda addressed the pupils in each class and encouraged them to stay away from social ills.

“Wentworth is a notorious area known for its social ills. We are here to support and help youth create a better life. Do not become part of the sheep who are led into the world of drugs and violence. Create and follow your own path to success,” said Kaundu.
In light of the recent suspicions of drug trafficking among pupils, Kaunda said, “Drug lords are in control to make profit. They don’t care about you or where you are heading.”
