The alarming statistics on drug use nationwide, where the most critical age for the onset of drug use is 12 at Bastion Popular, have shown that 26,83% of students got drugs at school consuming marijuana, cocaine and base paste. CDC will provide prevention work through the implementation of strategies to strengthen values, skills as tools to provide adequate and timely responses against drugs.


If we provide training and education against drug use through sport, art, drama, dance, we will be able to reduce at least 80% of children involved in drugs. If we provide a comprehensive program for drug prevention through training of teachers, parents and community for 1 year, it will be possible for them to be able to guide others at risk.

Long-Term Impact

The project will prevent and educate 200 adults and 300 children related to drugs use, this will allow children to invest their time in activities that will help them grow emotionally and intellectually; leaving them apart from the risk to consume drugs and have the capability to say NO to drugs. Children will have the opportunity to have a better future and relay the message to their fellows, how drugs can destroy their life.
