Many children are introduced to substance abuse at a young age through different forms of media, family members, or the social norms of today’s society. BAPS works diligently to raise an addiction-free generation by educating children about the negative effects of substance abuse through exhibitions, presentations, videos, plays, and door-to-door campaigns. An effective way to educate children is by getting them involved to educate others: BAPS hosts de-addiction campaigns carried out by children around the world. Children organize and execute massive de-addiction drives under the direct supervision of activity coordinators. The largest one to date was a special exhibition at a Mega Festival organized in Mumbai, India, where more than 21,000 children and youths reached out to more than 850,000 individuals in slums, inner city areas, and rural villages across India. Another intervention campaign included the touring performance of a theatrical play called “Kafan.” Kafan attracted record audiences of more than 900,000 people all over India. These initiatives reduce the effects of substance abuse on the community and reaffirm the same in the minds of thousands of children around the world.
