NawalParasi, Nepal: An interaction program has been held with parents and local stakeholders for drug control in Palhinandan Rural Municipality Ward No. 2 Harpur of West Nawalparasi, Nepal.
An interaction program with parents and local stakeholders for drug control has been completed with the financial support of Pragati Kishor Kishori Network and financial support of ABC Nepal, Storm Foundation, and Palhinandan Rural Municipality.
The interaction program was attended by the adolescents, parents, and local stakeholders.
The program was chaired by Niljyoti Gaud, the chairperson of the network, and Ram Nagina Singh, the chairperson of ward no 2.
Speaking on the occasion, Chief Guest Singh said, “We need to understand the personalization of a rural area and take action against those who are consuming and allowing drugs to grow in the community.”
He said that the problem could be solved by tightening the border checkpoints as it was easy to pass and consume the drugs due to the open border checkpoints of the neighboring countries.
He stressed the need to put a stop to the sale and distribution of various distilleries and liquor shops in the community.
We have to create awareness among the people through public awareness programs. And in particular, we all need to warn our children not to take drugs.
Speaking on the occasion, Chairman Gaud said that in order to minimize such problems, we need to raise public awareness in the community from our homes. He also said that in order to build a drug-free society, one should first make one’s family drug-free.
Among the guests at the event was Area Police Chief Amaniganj Superintendent of Police Budha Shankar Tharu, ABC Nepal Program Supervisors Rajman Barai and Bandana Tharu including 50 teenagers, parents and local officials.
