Jaano Jaago Jagao- an anti-tobacco campaign started from 23rd to 30th September 2010 under the project “Design for Social Change”, world’s largest school contest, organized by Director Kiran Bir Sethi, Director-The Riverside School in association with social activist and film actor Rahul Bose. Through this we attempt to cater to the problem of tobacco abuse creating various health problems in the city. Our students were sensitized to generate awareness, understand the socio-economic gap in the society and the needs of the disabled or underprivileged children by exposing them to their problems and unhealthy surroundings they are living in. A group of 24 students from class VIIIth were selected and trained to carry out this project. Awareness on ill effects of using tobacco (in the form of cigarettes, or chewing) was given to various people in the school at all levels primary, secondary and senior secondary, the fore class employees in the school-the bus drivers, security guards, in bastis around the school (Sunder Basti and Nizamuddin Basti), NGO’s, and people visiting the Delhi Zoo as well as Sunder Nagar Market. Our children displayed posters in all these areas, conducted street plays and surveys by using W.H.O ‘s questionnaires on Drug/Tobacco Abuse to generate awareness, and interviewed people on the streets, at the paan waalaa’s (panwaari’s) cigarette selling shops. They also visited the Blind school and conducted interactive sessions with the underprivileged students studying in the Ibtida Shiksha Kendra (an afternoon school running in our school premises only). They also took sessions amongst their peer groups as well in the junior classes such as 6th and 7th to spread awareness and give the message “Say No to Tobacco”.
