Chinrasu’s activities

"I would like to see a world without substance abuse".

What is the problem?  
Chinrasu has seen how more and more children in his community drink alcohol. They start at a very young age, often when they are about 12 years old. Many of them consider alcohol to be a normal part of life because they see it in their community, in movies, and in commercials. Drinking alcohol is considered manly and cool and young people are influenced by this image. All too often, this results in alcoholism, especially among the children and youth of poor neighbourhoods. Few know about the negative effects of alcohol, like diminished concentration.

Alcohol use has a big impact on the development of children. Chinrasu wants to change this and has decided to take action.

What is Chinrasu’s solution? 
Chinrasu will organize three activities at his university:

  • Activity 1 is a small festival held in April. The theme of the festival is a happy childhood and participants are made aware of the negative effects of addictive substances like alcohol.
  • Activity 2 uses movies and exhibitions to raise awareness. It is held in May.
  • Activity 3 is held in June and focusses on professional organizations that offer help to addicted children.

The activities aim to make the participants aware of how bad addiction is and what the effects on their health and future are.

What is the goal?  
Chinrasu hopes that the 25 participants will understand the risks of addiction and refrain from using drugs and alcohol. He also wants children who are already addicted to participate and accept the professional help offered in activity 3 so that they can hopefully beat their addiction.

How does Chinrasu work?  
Chinrasu is the leader of the project. He thinks it will be difficult to get children and youths who are already addicted to participate in the activities.

Who does Chinrasu need?  

  • Friends, to help him with the activities
  • Students and teachers, to attend the activities
  • Local organizations, to support him and offer professional help to addicted youths

What does he need?  

  • Feedback on his project plan from KidsRights
  • Materials to arrange the exhibition and play the movies
