During the education walk done by the children at City Park, Sec-38 D, Chandigarh and Budanpur, Sec-16, Punchkula, homes are being knocked by the cigarette dressed children, in order to spread awareness on the aftereffects of smoking amongst the society. Those homes, who have resolved to be drug free or having no member abusing any kind of drugs, are given certificates of ‘Drug Free Homes’ by these children.
People received the messages very overwhelmingly since this is something done by the children themselves, those considered the most vulnerable. They through rhythmic poems and lines sung the bad effect of all kinds of tobacco products in order to throw the light onto the fact that even intake of Gutkha, Cigar, Khaini, tobacco based mouth fresher is an act of tobacco consumption and should be stopped at the initial state. They also educated the people that tobacco is the highest form of addictive substance amongst the category of drugs, so should be avoided because studies says that even one trial of these leads to 80% of people addicted to it.
