Spreading awareness about cancer majorly caused by tobacco. It is no longer surprising that smoking is known to be the single and the biggest cause of cancer in the world. No wonder, that tobacco smoking issue has gained increasingly vigorous debates with the public health communities in response to the flourishing tobacco industry.
Growth Foundation of India (GFOI), plays a critical role in addressing issues that are overlooked or ignored by government and industry. We helped in raising knowledge and awareness by organizing many campaigns and awareness programmes in many schools of Uttarakhand, the children were made aware of why tobacco is harmful and how does it cause cancer, the children were also informed about the importance of a healthy lifestyle and consuming nutritious food.
The anti-tobacco campaign was also been organized by GFOI in different schools and areas of Uttarakhand.
With the help of different acts like the Puppet show and nukkad nataks (street plays), a message of cancer awareness was passed among the children. Causes and consequences of cancer were shown to children and also measures to prevent them were taught to them.
The aim of the campaign was to help children understand the root cause of disease. Over 12250 children were covered under this cause.
