Children against smoking

11 April 2012

Smoking or healthy living? Within an EU funded project implemented by Save the Children, students of School #78 in Yerevan organised an anti-tobacco action on 10 April 2012, focused on the issues related to smoking in public transport and its negative impact on people’s health.
Highlighting the ill-effects of tobacco, young and active participants called on society not to smoke and to prohibit drivers of public transport vehicles from endangering their health. They also distributed leaflets and anti-smoking information to passers-by who welcomed the children’s initiative, offering support and encouragement.
The founders of the initiative are involved in the “Child–to-Child” peer education groups within the EU-funded “Regional Children’s Action for Participation” project, which aims to provide children with the knowledge and skills necessary to become active citizens, enabling them to protect their own rights and promote solutions to existing problems.
Funded by the European Union and co-funded by Coca-Cola, the project is being implemented by Save the Children International with the support of the NGO “The future is yours”.
