Kashmir Youth Web: A team dedicated to crusade against drug abuse

Kashmir Youth Web, once again held an awareness event with an aim of creating a sense of awareness among the youth. Teenage is the most crucial and sensitive age where one breaks emotionally and needs some kind of support. Due to lack of maturity and sensibility, they opt other ways out of which the main focus drags on drugs. Kashmir youth web is an organisation which emphasizes on the social causes, issues, events/programmes in the Kashmir valley. The main motto behind the organisation is to provide benefits to the people and make society free from numerous social evils pertaining within it. We the team of Kashmir youth web comprises of youth whose intention is to make their society a better and peaceful place to do well by working on the number of social issues and tend to be supported by their society so that they can work with efficiency. Our main aim is to establish rehabilitation centres for the Drug Addicts /Smokers etc. and organise workshops/seminars for preventive education on serious effects of drug abuse. We have started an initiative for a Drug Free Kashmir and are continuously working to eliminate this menace from our society. From the past few years there has been an alarming rise in the consumption of narcotic substances among youth of Kashmir. Here at Kashmir youth web we perform several activities to spread awareness. We distribute booklets related to drugs abuse, give introductory lectures in organisations, schools and colleges, and invite the teachers to implement the truth about drugs education program. There is a need to create awareness among those who are about to get into drugs and especially to those who fell prey to this nuisance. In view of the present situation the basic aim of the team is to help those who have become a part of this drug addict society by providing them proper counselling and making them aware about the hazardous effects of drugs. They encourage everyone to volunteer their skill, time, resources and connections with them to spread the truth to children and youth.
We are working with Foundation for a Drug Free World, India which is a 100% non-profit project. We educate public, especially youth, on the harmful effects of drugs, arming them with factual information, which will help them to choose to live life drug-free. We are conducting free seminars in schools, distribution drives where we distribute booklets containing the truth about drugs, getting youth groups and clubs together to share the information and stay drug-free, have essay and poster making competitions, as well as train youth to give seminars, in handling intoxicated persons and getting them sober.
The team of Kashmir Youth Web is working head to toes in diverting the youth from pseudo support to the self-defence and self-stability. The problem of drug addiction in Kashmir has observed that this conflict ridden region has a tremendous rise in substance abusers over the past decade. United Nations Drug Control Programme (UNDCP) reported that around 70,000 people are drug addicts in the Kashmir valley alone among which 4,000 are females. Several studies conducted in the valley revealed that youth particularly between the age group of 17-30 involved in this menace of drug addiction. The event held was not to stop picnic but the panic among people. KYW is working in bridging the knowledge in parents as well, as parents are the base of one’s development. Kashmir Youth Web starts from giving the knowledge of the drugs, the side effects of consuming drugs, their mechanism of working inside body and the process of degrading the human body. KYW today distributed the booklets containing vital information, Do’s and Don’ts of drugs. “We want to start a fight against drugs and we dream every house and the star joins us in eradicating this social evil”, said Irfan Attari, Chairman of KYW along with his team members.
One of the main aspects of Kashmir Youth Web is the participating of girls on a very high level. Girls are working hard in holding the hands of other girls and getting them out the society backstabs. Girls mostly feel shy in opening out and somewhere our society is the reason of this. Kashmir Youth Web has been working keeping in view this part of society too. KYW has continuously been working and holding events in view of creating a strong hold in the minds of people and letting them know what actually the society is dealing and struggling with. In times of Covid, the bad and testing times indeed, there are many and many people holding the universal depressions by the help of such drugs. KYW held events with full precautionary measures only to keep going their fight and revolt against drugs. Till now thousands of books have been distributed by Kashmir Youth Web and they believe to continue the procedure for the betterment of people. KYW is expecting people to join hands with them and let them make Kashmir drug free. After all one and one make eleven. “This is not less than a war against drugs and every single person is a soldier for us”, the team said. The team welcomes every person who willingly wants to join Kashmir Youth Web. For a good cause, they open their arms wide and let everyone in to make the nation drug free. There’s a message from the Chairmain for the world out there, “The best solution is to reach young people with effective, fact-based drug education—before they start experimenting with drugs. Tweens, teens and young adults who know the facts about drugs are much less likely to start using them”
