The poor social climate had a negative impact on activities in general. The instability of motorcycle taxi drivers, the lack of dynamism of some club leaders and the reluctance of some school principals were identified by the recipients as obstacles to achieving the project goals. Furthermore, the political instability makes even more difficult the completion of the project by the ministry of Public Health, which is responsible to draft the law and policy against alcoholism.
Nevertheless, the Committees of Community Activities intensified their awareness-raising activities and set up the first self-help groups.
The main aim of the program - to provide young people with the skills and knowledge to make healthy decisions about alcohol and drug use and the risks involved, including the transmission of HIV/AIDS is in a good level achieved. Although the program is mainly aimed at young people (students and motor taxi drivers), it reached also adults (parents and community leaders) and state institutions (local and national politics and administration) who play an important role in the development of a protective environment for young people.
In overall, 246 animations / sessions were held in 13 schools. At the other 18 schools, training is provided by peer trainers. There were 19,498 young beneficiaries at primary and secondary schools (15,828 boys and locations.
Everyday and life skills program, enables young people to take responsibility for their decisions. In this regard, 108 peer trainers were trained, including 30 motorcycle taxi drivers. From 78 new peer trainers at high schools, 44 are boys and 34 girls; the 11 Life Skills Clubs (CVCs) have organized 53 meetings; 3 awareness meetings and exchanges between 300 peer trainers have been organized; 4 of 13 schools participating in the program have joined; the counsellors have held 144 meetings.
Parents are sensitized to restrict their children's access to alcohol in order to protect minors from alcohol consumption and abuse. (15 parents, led by peer trainers, are involved in two districts of N'Djamena).
There is a need for further training sessions for members of the community committee, which organizes activities in families and schools; an opinion in favor of alcohol legislation and alcohol policy;
There were different problems on implementing the project in the desired level.
The visit of the Secretary General of the IBC and the Program Officer made it possible to meet the local authorities to support the work of the Chadian Blue Cross. The success of this visit and the request staged by BKT and its district committees is that the Mayor of N'Djamena has taken up 3 decrees to regulate the sale of alcoholic beverages and tobacco in schools. The visit also marked the start of a pilot phase of a social responsibility project that will be evaluated during this year.
Overall, the success rate of the activities is 81.66%. The commitment of the various interest groups is to be promoted.
