bpdc and fiaseman holds an event dubbed "the youth and drug abuse"

At DAAC 2017 Volunteers from the Brain Power Development Centre handed out 600 copies of drug education booklets during the DAAC 2017 drug education.

On Wednesday 22nd March, 2017 Brain Power Development Centre a non-Governmental organisation in Ghana in partnership with Foundation for a Drug-Free World organised a programme dubbed DRUG ABUSE AWARENESS CAMPAIGN (DAAC) in Tarkwa, Ghana on the theme “the youth and substance abuse” to educate young people about the dangers of drug use and how parents can insulate their children from the damaging effects of drug abuse.

This initial campaign involved students from Fiaseman Senior High School with a total student population of over 1500 including teachers and guardians/counsellors of the school where our drug campaigners addressed the students and gave them the opportunity to ask questions pertaining to the theme.

At the event, Volunteers from the Brain Power Development Centre handed out 600 copies of drug education booklets comprising The Truth About Alcohol and Marijuana to the students and teachers.

To sustain the campaign, peer educators club was formed and 20 students registered to be members. These club members will continue with the peer education on their campus while we visit other Senior and Junior High Schools as well as churches across Ghana.
