day along with the winners of AAC 362 Aqsha, Jennies and Neha. Speaking on the Initiative K.K Gupta, Vice Chairman, BBIT Public School said that drug abuse is harmful at any age, but spreading awareness about drug use is crucial for controlling overall drug use and abuse. Teachers, mentors, coaches, older siblings, and a wide variety of other people can and do have a critical impact on children's behaviour. They help to guide the development of young people, not only through their actions as role models but also through the recommendations, instruction, and encouragement they provide. The campaign can cultivate a key drug-prevention resource by motivating and assisting youth-influential adults to encourage positive youth development and discourage drug use. He is extremely glad that their school has come forward with such an initiative. He would also like to thank Bobby Chakraborty who has carried out campaigns like this in more than 350 schools and colleges all around the world for felicitating their students with awards contributing to their society in such a noble way. The BBIT Public School is committed to the holistic development and well-being of the children entering its gates. The “Anti Addiction Campaign” that had been organized is an interactive educational project to affirm and reinforce the anti-addiction attitude of children who are not involved in drug use than to persuade experienced drug users to change their behaviour. The main objective of this “Anti Addiction Campaign” was to ensure that it creates awareness among children to help prevent drug use before it starts.
